Wow!! Is that really how big the planets a compered to earth. Its funny to see how other planets don’t knock into each other. Mrs langitupu was giving us a demonstration on how the planets are lined up and how they can orbit around the sun.

So we headed outside to full balloons up with water. The balloons were meant to react as planets. Sadly it just started pouring down with rain, so that plan didn’t work we went back in side and decided to blow up the balloons,only 9 people had to blow them. The order of planets from the sun a Mercury,Venus,Earth,Mars,Jupiter,Saturn,Uranus,Neptune,Pluto.

The sun is bang on in the middle of the solar system. Did you know that there a stars bigger than the sun and they are located below the milky way. It takes a year for the earth to fully orbit around the sun. All planets orbit anti clock wise. Also another word to call a planet is an orb. Neptune is named after the roman god of the sea. Neptune is mostly filled with water. Earth only has one moon a no rings.

My favorite planet is Pluto because sadly A few years ago it was named a dwarf planet. It is about 2 to 3 thousand km. Its the furthest from the sun and its in the outer core. After one day of learning about planets I am happy with the out come.

I actally found out allot of interesting things.
