  1. 1. Solar System<br />2A<br />2011<br />
  2. 2. Earthby Megan Quinn<br />The earth is the biggest of all the terrestrial planets.<br /> The earth’s temperature, weather and atmosphere are just right to keep us alive.<br /> Earth was the mother of the mountains , valleys , streams and all other land formations. <br />
  3. 3. Asteroid Beltby Conor Buckley<br />Ida is a neat little asteroid about 36 miles wide. It has its own little moon called Dacty.<br />The asteroid belt is divided into an inner belt and outer belt.<br />The outer belt includes asteroids 250 million miles beyond the sun.<br />
  4. 4. Asteroid Beltby Quinn MartinAsteroid Belt by Quinn Martin<br />Asteroids are left over materials of the solar system. <br /> 26 very large asteroids have been discovered. <br />If all the asteroids were squashed together up into one planet it would be smaller than our moon. <br />
  5. 5. Saturnby Portia L.<br />Saturn is most well known for its rings.<br />They are very thin and could fit between two football posts.<br />Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune also have rings.<br />Saturn has 53 official moons.<br />
  6. 6. Saturnby Peter McAndrews<br />Saturn was the Roman god of agriculture. Saturn was named after him. <br />Saturn is the furthest plant from Earth that can be seen without the help of a telescope.<br />The rings are not solid but are made up of particles of ice, dust, and rocks.<br />
  7. 7. Earthby Leah Keith<br />The Earth is the biggest of all the terrestrial plants.<br />Earth is covered with 70% water.<br />Scientist use what they know about Earth to guess what the other planets might be like.<br />
  8. 8. Jupiterby Lindsey Koster<br />If you weigh 70 pounds on Earth on Jupiter you would weigh 185 pounds. <br />Jupiter is the largest planet by far in the solar system. <br />The Earth could fit inside Jupiter more than 1,000 times.<br /> Jupiter has rings they only show when Jupiter passes the sun.<br />
  9. 9. Plutoby Liam Doyle<br />Pluto has three moons.<br />Pluto was the only planet named by a kid.<br />Because Pluto is so small you would be very light if you visited.<br />
  10. 10. Marsby Joe Foster<br />If you weigh 74 pounds on Earth you would weigh about 27 pounds on Mars.<br />Mars orbit takes it just inside of the asteroid belt.<br />Mars has two moons their names are Deimo, and Phobo.<br />
  11. 11. Jupiterby Aidan Firmature<br />You can see four of Jupiter’ s moons with a pair of binoculars at night. <br />Jupiter is considered a gas giant because it does not have a solid surface. <br />Jupiter spins really fast; it takes 10 hours to go from night to day in Jupiter.<br />
  12. 12. Jupiterby Natalie McFadden<br />The Earth could fit inside Jupiter more than 1000 times. <br />Jupiter is considered a gas giant because it does not have a solid surface.<br />Jupiter is a very stormy planet.<br />
  13. 13. Marsby Nick Thull<br />Mars was named after the Roman god of war and agriculture.<br /> Mars once had a lot of rivers and lakes, but now it doesn’t-only frozen water.<br />Mars is called the Red Planet because it has red dirt and rocks.<br />
  14. 14. Marsby Rain Emmons<br />Once Mars had rivers, steams, lakes and an ocean.<br />Mars has two moons and their names are Deimos and Phobos.<br />Mars has a volcano that is the biggest in the Solar Systems. <br />
  15. 15. Mercuryby Alex Bullock<br />You would weigh 27 pounds if you weighed 70 pounds on Earth. <br />Mercury has wrinkles because the crust on Mercury is rocky.<br />You can see Mercury In the early morning or in the late after noon.<br />
  16. 16. Mercuryby Isaac Kenney<br />If you weigh 70 pounds on Earth you weigh 27pounds g on Mercury. <br />Mercury is called the morning star because it shines in the morning before the Sun.<br /> Mercury orbits closest to the Sun and the fastest.<br />
  17. 17. Mercuryby Macy Mollner<br />In astronomy Mercury was the Roman version of the Greek god Hermes. <br /> If you moved to Mercury you would not weigh as much as you do on Earth. <br />Mercury is also called the morning star. <br />
  18. 18. Neptuneby Mary Baltimore<br />Neptune was discovered by Johann Galle and Heinrich D’Arrest in 1846. <br />Neptune was named after the god of the water and sea.<br /> In 2011 Neptune will complete its first orbit around the sun.<br />
  19. 19. Neptuneby Sage Maleki<br />If you weigh 70 pounds on earth then you would weigh 78 pounds on Neptune.<br />It takes 16 hours and 17 minutes to rotate.<br />In Neptune the atmosphere is a large white cloud that twirls around rather quickly. <br />
  20. 20. PlutoBy Adam Parra<br />The Hubble space craft is the only craft to see Pluto which is a dwarf planet.<br />Pluto is like an egg.<br />Pluto is 700 pounds. Pluto has three moons the largest one is called Craron.<br />
  21. 21. Plutoby Molly Monahan<br />The name Pluto was named by an 11 year old kid named Venetia Burney.<br />Pluto is smaller than 7 moons in the solar system.<br />It changed from a planet to a dwarf planet on August 24, 2006.<br />
  22. 22. Saturnby Brendan Buckley<br />Saturn has 53 official moons.<br /> It is the second largest planet in the solar system.<br />Saturn is the least denseplanet in the Solar System.<br />
  23. 23. SUNby Anna Ambrose<br />The sun was born in a vast amount of gas and dust around five billion years ago.<br /> Thermonuclear fusion is the process in which a star produces its own light. The sun does this.<br />The Romans called the sun Sol which means in English-Sun.<br />
  24. 24. SunGrace Ellis<br />The romans call “sun” sol.<br />The sun was born in a big cloud around 5 billion years ago.<br />The sun produces it’s own heat, light, and energy.<br />
  25. 25. Sunby Kelly Kozol<br />The sun is so large that the earth could easily fit inside the sun a million times.<br />The sun creates a sort of wind known as the solar wind.<br />The sun can make you blind if you look at it too long.<br />
  26. 26. Uranusby Anna Thibodeau<br />Uranus has 27 moons,5 are big and the rest are small.<br />Uranus also has rings, but they don’t stretch out as far as Saturn.<br />Just like Jupiter and Saturn Uranus is made of gas but it’s a little different.<br />
  27. 27. Uranusby Joseph Juliano<br />It would take a lot of years to get to Uranus.<br />Uranus has 27 moons.<br />The surface of Uranus is an ocean of gas.<br />
