Jupiter 5th planet from the sun. Biggest planet in the solar system. 3 rings you can see and 1 one that is invisible. It is a gas giant. It has a big red dot because it is a big storm that is really windy.

Slide 10

Saturn It is famous for it’s rings. It is like it’s own astroid belt. 6th planet from the sun. 2nd largest planet from the sun. Saturn, along with Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune, is classified as a gas giant.

Dwarf planets Dwarf planets are small planets like Pluto. A dwarf planet is a planet that is no longer a planet if it is to small. Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris are some of the dwarf planets. Pluto is on the outer solar system.

Slide 14

Black hole It is a imploded sun bigger than our sun. Not even light can escape, can escape its gravitational pull. I think the meteors and comets make planets. Scientist think that it could lead into another dimension.

Slide 15

Solar System All the 8 planets orbit the sun to get heat, we are on a axis of 23.43 degrees. We get days and nights by our tilt. One side facing the sun has day but the other side has night because it is facing away from the sun.

Slide 16

Astroid belt A astroid belt is just a belt of asteroids. It separates the inner solar system and the outer solar system. Quite big.

Slide 17

Outer solar system Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, also called the gas giants. The outer solar system is separated by the astroid belt.

Slide 18

Inner solar system Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, also called the terrestrial planets. Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are in the inner solar system.

Slide 19

Stars A star is a massive, luminous ball of plasma that is held together by gravity.

Slide 20

galaxy The galaxy is out our solar system. the milky way is in the galaxy.

Slide 22

Moon phases We get moon phases by the sun’s light reflecting. It starts as a New Moon, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Last Quarter, and Waning Crescent.

Slide 23

Apollo 11 Launched on July 16, 1969. People on board were Commander Neil Alden Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin.

Slide 24

Apollo 13 Apollo 13 failed to get back, because they didn’t have enough air on the moon. But they had enough to land and survived.

Slide 25

Think carefully! LI: I can think of as many words to do with our universe. SC: I have written nouns, verbs and adjectives.

Slide 26

Why it takes a long Time to go to mars. The moon has Craters. There are other planets

Slide 27

Ball Map LI: WALHT find facts about my planet SC: I have not plagiarised my information

Slide 28

Quiz time!! What is the biggest planet in the solar system?? Is Pluto a planet? How many quarters of the earth that is water?? What is a supernova made out of? How many moons does Jupiter have? What is the smallest planet in the solar system?

Slide 29

Answers Jupiter. No. ¾ Radiation from an imploded sun. At least 63. Pluto counts.
