      The outer planets are so much larger than the inner planets that they make up 99 percent of the mass of the celestial bodies that orbit the Sun. Although mainly composed of . The Outer Planets and Their Moons. Introduction • The outer part of our Solar System is wholly unlike the inner Solar System containing four gaseous giant (or Jovian) planets and Pluto, a solid-surfaced planet remarkably unlike the other four solid-surfaced planets.

    The book, "The Planets in Our Solar System ", describes the planets in our solar system. It also includes models of sizes of plans and their distance from the book can be used to help students learn the order of the planets and be familiar with relative sizes of the planets. Appropriate for a 4/5(46).   Week 2 of our month-long voyage into outer space brought a discussion about planets and their moons (did you know that Saturn has 62 moons?). Read on for a mini book tour of the planets, occasional space facts, and one of my favorite activities ever. Rather than sing, I start STEAM Storytime with a discussion..

      Most of the planets also have one or more moons that orbit around them. The book also talks about asteroids, comets, and meteoroids. Most books about the planets discuss each planet in turn, going in order from the planet closest to the sun (Mercury) to the planet furthest from the sun (Neptune).   The StoryBots are curious little creatures who live beneath our screens, offering a world of learning and fun for kids. The Emmy Award-winning “Ask the StoryBots” is now streaming on Netflix.
