There are some links to interesting websites below which will tell you more about space, our solar system and the planets within it. There are facts to read and some videos too.
Watch the you tube video first as it shows you the solar system and introduces you to all of the planets within it.
When you have done this, your job is to choose one planet to research and find information/facts about.
Here are some questions you could find the answers to:
- How many moons does it have?
- What is the order of the planet from the sun?
- What colour is the planet?
- What is the temperature?
- How far is the planet from the sun? (distance)
- The size of the planet and what it is made from?
It is up to you how you present your research. You may want to write the questions as headings to keep the information clear and easy to find.
There are so many interesting things to discover about the planets! We can't wait to learn all about them from you!
