Planetarium Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

Earth has more exposed water than land.  Three quarters of the Earth is covered by water! The earth has one moon.

Venus is the brightest planet in our sky and can sometimes be seen with the naked eye if you know where to look.  It is the solar system’s brightest planet — yellow clouds of sulfuric acid reflect the sun’s light.

Jupiter is so big that you could fit all the other planets in the solar system inside it.

Pluto is no longer considered a planet — instead, astronomers call it a dwarf planet or planetoid.
