    • Planets of the Solar System
    • Each planet in our solar system orbits the sun at a different distance.
    • The four planets that orbit closest to the sun are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.
    • Earth is the only planet with flowing water.
    • Planets are surrounded by atmospheres, or layers of air.
    • The planet closest to the sun is Mercury.
    • Venus is Earth’s closest neighbor. The atmosphere on Venus has yellow-white clouds of acid.

    • Mars has plains, sand dunes, craters, and volcanoes. It has ice caps around both its north and south poles.
    • Mars has two moons that orbit it.
    • All of the inner planets have atmospheres. But people can only breathe the air on Earth. Why do you think this is so?
    • Astronomers call the outer planets “giants”.
