Children and adults are fascinated by space and at some point most of us fantasize about being astronauts Today the activities are going to focus on introducing The Eight Planets, the children will hear some brief facts for each planet, then they will identify that the planets are shaped like a circle and they will practice numbers 1 thru 8 by doing a simple activity in which they will see how each planet is positioned away from the sun. There are eight planets and three dwarf planets in the solar system.
