We have been learning about space.


Did you know that there are 8 planets in the Solar System?  They are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

The sun is bright and very hot.










The planets orbit the Sun.  Pluto is too small to be a planet so it is known as a 'dwarf' planet.


Did you know that Jupiter is the biggest planet in the Solar System?








Earth is the only planet that has liquid water.


Did you know that Earth is the only planet that has life? 









Did you know that the Moon orbits the Earth?


The first man to land on the Moon was Neil Armstrong.









It took four days for Apollo 11 to reach the Moon.


The astronauts only had 2 hours to do their experiments and collect rock samples from the Moon.
