TEKS: (3.1) Science concepts: The student knows that the natural world includes earth materials and objects in the sky. The student will be able to identify all the planets in our solar system and their position in relation to the sun.
The small and rocky plant Mercury is the closest planet to the sun; it speeds around the sun in a wildly elliptical (non-circular) orbit that takes it as close as 47 million km and as far as 70 million km from the sun.
Mercury completes a trip around the sun every 88 days, speeding through space at nearly 50 km per second, faster than any other planet.
Because it is so close to the sun, temperatures on its surface can reach a scorching 467 degrees Celsius.
Mercury is the second smallest planet in the solar system, larger only than Pluto.
Like the other giant plants (Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune) Saturn is a gas giant made mostly of hydrogen and helium.
Saturn is the most extensive and complex planet in our solar system.
NASA’s two Voyage spacecrafts revealed that Saturn’s rings are made mostly of water ice, and they found “braided” rings, ringlets and “spokes”-in the rings that seem to circle the planet at a different rate from that of the surrounding ring material.
