Our planet, Earth, is just one tiny speck in the Universe. Before we can go and explore the Universe, we want to start by exploring our Solar System. What we know about the Solar System now is so different from what we learned when we were in school. Come join ACC Science Class – The Solar System.
We will introduce the 8 planets that make up our Solar System. We will learn their names, the major characteristics of each planet, how many moons they have, how long a day is on each planet, and how long a year is on each planet. 8 planets = 8 experiments as we tour through space and meet each of our planetary neighbors.
