Transcript of "09 uni 03"

  1. 1. The Solar System
  2. 2. Think. Pair. Share. i) What are the names of the 8 planets in the Sol Solar System? (Hint: E J M M N S U V) ii) Order the planets according to their distance from the Sun. iii) How can you remember this order?
  3. 3. The Planets <ul><li>A Planet: </li></ul><ul><li>Orbits a star, but is not a star itself. </li></ul><ul><li>Is spherical. </li></ul><ul><li>Is the biggest object in its orbital path. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Planets <ul><li>Inner planets </li></ul><ul><li>Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars. </li></ul><ul><li>Also called the terrestrial planets . </li></ul><ul><li>Relatively small, have solid cores and rocky crusts. </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Planets <ul><li>Outer planets </li></ul><ul><li>Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. </li></ul><ul><li>Also called the gas giants . </li></ul><ul><li>Large clumps of gas, ice and dust, cold temperatures. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Asteroid Belts Asteroids are chunks of rock and metal floating in space. There are 2 asteroid belts in our solar system: 1) Between Mars and Jupiter. 2) The Kuiper Belt on the edge of the solar system.
  7. 8. Pluto <ul><li>Pluto is not a planet. </li></ul><ul><li>In 2006 Pluto was declared to be </li></ul><ul><li>a dwarf planet because: </li></ul><ul><li>a) It sometimes crosses Neptune’s orbit. </li></ul><ul><li>b) Does not have a clear orbit (other objects in its path). </li></ul><ul><li>c) Other objects in the Kuiper belt were discovered to be larger than Pluto. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Dwarf Planets Dwarf planets orbit the Sun and are spherical, but are not the largest objects in their orbits. - Pluto - Makemake - Haumea - Eris - Ceres
