Description

Five and counting! So far, astronomers have discovered five dwarf planets in our solar system. Pluto, which was once thought of as the ninth planet, is today classified as a dwarf planet. This book looks at the current dwarf planets, characteristics, size, and orbital patterns, as well as the three rules scientists follow to characterize these tiny, round space objects. Every day new discoveries are being made. Who knows how many dwarf planets we will find in the future! This book will allow students to understand that patterns in the natural world can be observed, used to describe phenomena, and used as evidence.

Kyla Steinkraus (author)

Publisher: Rourke Publishing ISBN: 9781683422754

The four planets farthest from the Sun are called the gas giants. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are different from the other planets in our solar system. They are not solid, but are made of liquids and clouds of gas with gravity pulling it all together into a planet shape. Learn facts about the climate, gases, size, and other quirky things each of the planets possess. This book isn't filled with hot air! Pull out your telescope and see if you can observe one of these planets. This book will allow students to understand that patterns in the natural world can be observed, used to describe phenomena, and used as evidence.

Publisher: Rourke Publishing ISBN: 9781683422747

Our closest solar system is about 10 light years away. It has two main types of planets. Some are rocky and small, like planet Earth, while others are huge balls of gas, like Jupiter. Learn about how astronomers once thought our solar system was the one and only, to how they have now discovered hundreds of stars with planets orbiting them, which means there could be billions of solar systems in outer space! Just maybe, these alien worlds could host life, like our own amazing planet. This book allows students to use observations of the Sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted.
