Our Solar System.

Yesterday we had a demonstration about what is in our solar system.
We had to do it outside because our class was too small, so we went outside and it started to rain. Then we had to come back inside and push all of the desks out of the way to make more room.

We blew up the balloons so we can see which order our planets are in. All of us helped Mrs Lagitupu put the planets in order from Mercury to Pluto. Did u know that Pluto is a classified as a dwarf planet? I found out when Tia told me I felt excited because i just learnt something new!

The order that Mrs Lagitupu put the planets in was like this: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Did you know that Mars has the biggest volcano in out solar system? During our experiment we had a little discussion about why we are the 3rd planet from the sun. But what I liked about out little discussion was how I learnt some interesting stuff that I could use in my writing.

After all of our experiments and demos and discussions we had heaps of fun popping balloons, and finding out heaps of information about the planets. I think that was the best experiment of the year!

  1. Hey Pesi

    It can be quite annoying when the weather doesnt do what you want it too but I'm glad to hear you're class managed to work around that.

    Did you know that pluto only just recently became a Dwarf planet, while I grew up I knew it as the 9 planets in the solar system... I guess I'll have to change how I think a bit now :)

    Very nice recount, you might want to have a look at capitilising some of you 'i's :)

    Have fun and keep writing :)
