Extreme temperatures (-300 to 800)
Barren and rocky surface
Covered with many craters
Similar to the moon
Has no moons Mostly Carbon Dioxide

Full of craters and active volcanoes
Surface is similar to molten lead
Brightest planet in the night sky Only atmosphere with free oxygen
Only planet with known life
Compare all other planets to ours "The Red Planet"
Dusty, rocky surface
Two moons Largest planet (1300 Earth fit inside)
Quick spinning of atmosphere create the bands
Strong magnetic field
Many moons surrounding it (50+)
No solid surface only gas
Many storms on its surface...largest hurricane in our Solar System? Second Largest Planet
Rings are made of millions of ice crystals
Made up of gas (mostly hydrogen and helium)
Least dense planet in the solar system
Many moons (50+)
Strong magnetic field Four times the size of earth
Covered in thin wispy white clouds that stretch around the planet
Recently found rings around the planet
Furthest from the sun 3rd Grade Standard 126.96.36.199.2: Earth Science, The Universe: Objects in the solar system as seen from Earth have various sizes and distinctive patterns of motion.
Standard 188.8.131.52.1: Earth Science, The Universe: The sun and moon have locations and movements that can be observed and described. Uranus First planet discovered by a telescope
Spins lying on its side (like a barrel)
Gas giant (almost identical to Neptune)
Atmosphere is mostly hydrogen and methane
The methane absorbs red light and causes the blue light color http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/sciencefacts/planets.html
