The Solar System

  1. 1. The Solar System Prepared by: Maricar DC Guarin BSED II
  2. 2. Solar System • consists of the Sun and the astronomical objects gravitationally bound in orbit around it, all of which formed from the collapse of a giant molecular cloud approximately 4.6 billion years ago
  3. 3. The Solar Family Sun The Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System. It is a common middle-sized yellow star which scientists have named Sol, after the ancient Roman name.
  4. 4. Mercury The planet Mercury is the closest of the planets to the Sun. Because this planet lies so close to the Sun, and as a result somewhat near to Earth, it is visible to observers on Earth in the late evening or early morning sky
  5. 5. Venus - Venus is in many ways Earth's sister planet. In other words, Venus is made up of almost the exact same types of materials as the Earth and in about the same amounts. Venus has volcanoes, mountains and sand, just like Earth.
  6. 6. Earth Our planet is an oasis of life in an otherwise desolate universe. The Earth's temperature, weather, atmosphere and many other factors are just right to keep us alive.
  7. 7. Mars - Mars excites scientists How much would because its mild you weigh on is more temperament Mars? Earth's than any like the of the other planets. If Evidence suggests that you weighed 70 poundsoncekg) on Mars (32 had rivers, the Earth, you would even streams, lakes, and weigh about 27 an ocean. pounds (12 kg) on Mars.
  8. 8. Jupiter . Jupiter is a very stormy planet. There are storms found throughout the atmosphere, and most of the storms seem to never end.
  9. 9. Saturn In many ways, Saturn is similar to Jupiter, but it is much smaller. It is the second largest planet in our Solar System and it is a gas giant like Jupiter.
  10. 10. Uranus Like Jupiter and Saturn, Uranus is a gas giant. But Uranus is a little different. Unlike all the other planets and most of the moons in our Solar System, Uranus spins on its side.
  11. 11. Neptune Neptune is the smallest of the four gas giants in our Solar System.
  12. 12. Asteroid • An asteroid is a large rock in outer space. Some, like Ceres, can be very large, while others are as small as a grain of sand.
  13. 13. Asteroid Belt Asteroids are left over materials from the formation of the Solar System. These materials were never incorporated into a planet because of their proximity to Jupiter's strong gravity.
  14. 14. Comets A comet is a small world which scientists sometimes call a planetesimal. They are made out of dust and ice, kind of like a dirty snow ball.
  15. 15. Now, let’s watch how the Solar System formed!
  16. 16. Game: Tell me, who am I? Neptune Uranus Mercury Saturn Venus
  17. 17. Brain-cracking! 5-minute Seatwork: On a ¼ sheet of paper, discuss the importance of the sun in the solar system.
  18. 18. Assignment  • On a short bond paper, make an illustration about the life and death of stars.
