Our Class Planet Project By Mrs. Worthington's 2nd Grade Class
Do you want to know how far Uranus is from Earth? It is one billion, 700 million miles.
I would not like to go to Uranus because it would be 84 Earth years make 1 year on Earth.
If I weighed 100 pounds on Earth I would weigh 93 pounds on Uranus.
The temperature on Neptune is -360 °F. I would wear lots of winter clothes.
There are 8 moons. If you weighed 100 pounds on Earth you would weigh 123 pounds on Neptune.
It’s winds reach 600 miles per hour. It has poisonous gases and is very cold. Triton’s moon has an atmosphere volcano like eruption and frozen gases.
I would have to travel 2,700,000,000 miles to get to Pluto. I would have to wear lots of clothes because it is -395°F or -235°F. It takes 6 Earth days to make 1 day.
A year on Pluto is 248 Earth years. It has 1 new moon. If you weighed 100 pounds on Earth you would weigh just a few pounds on Pluto.
It has icebergs. Did you know there are frozen gases? It is also very cold. It is the darkest planet.
It is hard to see with a telescope. The inside is called a core. Did you know in 2226 Pluto crosses Neptune’s orbit?
Saturn is 744 million miles from Earth. The temperature is -300°F. We would bring a space suit.
On Saturn a day is 10 hours and 39 minutes. A year is 29 and half Earth years.
Mars is about 35 million miles from Earth. The hottest temperature is 60°f.
The temperature on Mercury would be 750 degrees F and at night Mercury would be 300 degrees F.
Mercury’s day would be 59 Earth days and a year 88 Earth days. Mercury has no Moons. If I weighed 100 pounds on Earth I would weigh 37 pounds on Mercury.
Mercury is hard to see from Earth. Mercury appears to change its shape. Astronomers have questions about Mercury.
Mercury is made mostly of iron. Mercury and the Moon both have many craters.
The temperature on the moon when the sun is out is 265°F. When the sun sets it is -310° F.
