Astrological Planets –There are eight planets in the Solar System. In order of increasing distance from the Sun, they are the four terrestrials, Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, then the four gas giants, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, & Neptune. Pluto was discredited by some...but I'm not buying it! lol
HSS-E1-A: The student will investigate & understand the characteristics of the Earth and the solar system. Key Concepts include: Position of the Earth in the solar system Print the worksheet on card stock, cut out, and have the students put the planets in order. Students could also number the planets to demonstrate order.
This is an excellent way for students to remember the order of the planets. This worksheet also allows students to write in the names of each planet, so teachers would easily be able to see if the material is being learned. I also like how each planet has a visual. This would help any visual learners in the classroom. - KS
