  1. 1. The Solar System<br />By: Crystal Herman EDU 290<br /> 3rd Grade<br />
  2. 2. What Makes Up the Solar System?<br /> Sun<br />Planets<br />and<br />other small objects<br />
  3. 3. THE SUN<br />Aka Yellow Dwarf Star<br />The sun is the center of our solar system and holds everything in place by its gravity. <br />It is a large star, which are hot balls of glowing gas that give off energy. <br />We need the suns light energy, without it plants wouldn’t grow and Earth would be too cold for anything to live on it. <br />
  4. 4. Planets<br />EightPlanets orbit the sun<br />These planets are separated and classified as Inner andOuterplanets.<br />
  5. 5. Inner Planets <br />The Inner Planets consist of the 4 planets closest to the sun.<br />They are…<br />Earth<br />Venus<br />Mars<br />Mercury<br />
  6. 6. Inner Planets cont…<br />All the inner planets have rockysurfaces.<br />They are smaller and warmer because of how close they are to the sun.<br />You are able to see Venus, Mars, and possibly Mercury with a telescope. <br />
  7. 7. Earth and Mars are the only inner planets that have moons.<br />Earth has 1 and Mars has 2.<br />
  8. 8. Earth’s Moon<br /> THE MOON IS EARTH'S CLOSEST NEIGHBOR IN SPACE, BUT IT IS STILL FAR AWAY. <br />The Earth-moon distance is about 239,000 miles<br />That’s crazy to think since you can see part of the moon every night. <br />
  9. 9. Venus ( Earths Sister)<br />Surface is rocky, with a constant cover of thick clouds<br />Mercury:<br />Surface is rocky, with many craters <br />Earth:<br />Mostly water, with some land areas. <br />Mars:<br />Surface is rocky, with red dust and no water.<br />
  10. 10. Outer Planets <br />The outer planets are the ones farthest from the sun.<br />They are…<br />Jupiter<br />Neptune<br />Saturn<br />Uranus<br />Pluto<br />
  11. 11. Jupiter<br />Jupiter is the largest planet with the most moons, it has 61!<br />Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, is a huge storm on its surface. <br />
  12. 12. Saturn<br />Saturn is one of the two planets with rings.<br />Its rings reach out about 258,000 miles from its surface. <br />Saturn has at least 33 moons. <br />
  13. 13. Uranus<br /><ul><li>Has at least 25 moons
  14. 14. 2nd planet with rings</li></ul>Neptune<br /><ul><li>Has at least 13 moons
  15. 15. Is now considered the farthest planet from the sun</li></li></ul><li>Again, Neptune is now considered the farthest planet because….<br />until 2006, when scientists removed Pluto from the list of planets, Pluto was the 9th and farthest planet.<br />However, scientists have placed it in a new group called “Dwarf Planets”. <br />
  16. 16. Pluto<br />Pluto is not like the other outer planets.<br />It is small and made up oficeandrock.<br />Pluto has at least 3 moons, one moon it almost as large as Pluto itself. <br />
