Song: “The Planets”
(Tune:‘B-I-N-G-O’ & ‘The Nine Planets’)
There are nine planets in the solar system
Together we can say their names, ohh!
Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars
Jupiter and Saturn
Uranus and Neptune
Pluto is the last!
a. Describe the planets in the solar
b. Reflect on how important it is to
take care of our planet earth; and
c. Create synthesis of the planets
in the solar system.
What is a solar
-composes the Sun together
with the eight planets and their
-includes other celestial bodies
that orbit the sun
The members of the Solar System
Who wakes us up every morning?
Hint: It’s like a BIG LIGHT BULB
over the Earth.
Mother of the Solar SystemMother of the Solar System
-the largest object in our solar system
-where most of the ENERGY and
LIGHT on Earth comes from.
The FIRST planet from the sun
-The smallest planet in the Solar System
-Rocky planet with many craters.
-Scientists have found water ice inside deep
craters at the north and south poles.
The SECOND planet from the sun
known as the twin planet of the Earth
also called as “Morning Star” or “Evening Star”
It has a thick, poisonous atmosphere of carbon
dioxide and sulfuric acid.
Venus spins backwards compared to other planets
The 3RD planet from the sun
Earth is a water world, with two-thirds of
the planet covered by ocean.
The only world known to harbor life.
Oceans at least 4 km deep cover nearly 70
percent of Earth's surface.
People cannot live in the moon
due to a number of challenges they
In addition, there is no oxygen
supply and no source of energy for
human activities such as heating.
THE 4TH PLANET FROM THE SUN
Known as the RED PLANET
Mars is a small rocky body once thought to be very Earth-like.
Volcanism, impacts from other bodies, movements of its crust,
and atmospheric effects such as dust storms have changed its
It has polar ice caps that grow and recede with the change of
THE 5TH PLANET FROM THE SUN
the largest planet-serves as the “Solar System’s
it sucks all the dust and comets from the space
Atmosphere: 90% hydrogen, 10% helium, .07% methane
Its immense, complex atmosphere includes the Great Red
Spot, a 300-year-old storm that is almost the size of
THE 6TH PLANET FROM THE SUN
the second largest planet in the solar system
”The Ringed Planet”
known to be the “Most Beautiful Planet” in the Solar
Composition: Saturn is a gas giant. It is made mostly of
hydrogen and helium.
THE 7TH PLANET FROM THE SUN
a very cold planet
the Uranus' blue color is the result of a gas called
"methane" found in the planet's upper atmosphere.
Composition: It is a "gas giant" with no solid surface.
Interesting Facts: Uranus spins backwards compared to
THE 8TH PLANET FROM THE SUN
third largest planet in the solar system
its blue color comes from “Methane gas”
has the strongest winds in the Solar System
Composition: Neptune is one of the Gas Giants;
therefore Neptune has no solid surface.
THE 9TH PLANET FROM THE SUN
Why is Pluto no
longer considered as a
never considered as Planet
much smaller than any of the official planets
now classified as a "dwarf planet"
Atmosphere: perhaps methane and nitrogen
Facts: Pluto spins backwards to most other planets.
-Stars are huge balls of glowing gas in the sky.
-Are over 200 billion, billion stars in the universe.
are small, airless rocky worlds revolving around
the sun that are too small to be called planets.
They are also known as planetoids or minor
a system of millions or
billions of stars, together
with gas and dust, held
together by gravitational
are basically dusty snowballs
which orbit the Sun.
They are made of ices, such
as water, carbon dioxide,
ammonia and methane, mixed
Now, in a sheet of paper, I want
you to write your reflections on
how important it is to take care of
our planet Earth. (5 minutes)
I want a volunteer to share his/her
reflection to the class.

How many planets are there in the

Why is Pluto no longer a member of the
