My name is Lily Cardoso

We will identify the elements of our solar system: the planets and other celestial bodies.
The Solar System has planets, moons, asteroids, comets, minor planets, etc.
The Solar System is made up of all the planets that orbit our Sun.
It also consists of moons, comets, asteroids, minor planets, and dust and gas.
Everything in the Solar System orbits or revolves around the Sun.
The Solar System evolved from a giant cloud of dust and gas.
At the center of this spinning cloud, a small star began to form.
This star grew larger and larger as it collected more and more of the dust and gas that collapsed into it.
The star in the center eventually ignited forming our Sun.
The smaller clumps became the planets, minor planets, moons, comets, and asteroids.
There are only eight planets.
There are dwarf planets as well.
The Sun
The Sun is the largest object in the Solar System.
Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun.
It appears as the brightest planet in the night sky.
An oasis of life in the universe.
Its mild temperament is more like the Earth's than any of the other planets.
This is the largest planet.
Second largest planet.
Gas giant, like Jupiter.
Smallest of gas giants.
Dwarf Planets
A dwarf planet is "a celestial body that orbits the Sun, has a spherical shape, but it is not large enough to draw in other objects in its orbital path."
Rocky small objects with round or irregular shapes.
26 very large asteroids have been discovered.
The Kuiper Belt
It is a region of the Solar System past Neptune's orbit.
They are icy small bodies.
They display visible tail.
A meteoroid is a small rock or particle of debris in our solar system.
When it strikes the surface of the Earth, it is called a 'meteorite'.

Solar System
The Solar System includes the Sun and all the objects that orbit around it due to its gravity force. This includes things such as planets, comets, asteroids, meteoroids, and moons.
Extremely cold planet called "ice giant."
When a meteoroid passes through Earth’s atmosphere is called a 'meteor'.
