Solar System

Where are we located in the Solar System?

Abort! Abort!

Your once in a lifetime trip to Pandora has had to be abandoned. Due to technical problems, you have crash landed SOMEWHERE in the Solar System. You must try to help NASA to locate you by giving them some clues about your location. In order to do this, you must know the following:

  • Names of the planets
  • Order of the planets
  • Size of the planets
  • Shape of the planets

Good luck Space Tourists - May the knowledge be with you!


We used a mnemonic to learn the names and order of the planets. We explored a fruit Solar System to help us to understand the sizes of the planets.
