Is the moon a planet?

Our home-schooled students have been exploring what they know about the moon and whether they think the moon is a planet.

A planet is a sphere made of rocky material or gas that orbits the sun.

A moon, on the other hand, is a sphere of rocky material that orbits a planet, just like our moon orbits Earth.

Students took part in a fun creative activity looking at the names of the planets in our solar system.
The oral activity gave the opportunity for students to recall the properties of a planet and list them in their books.

Visuals were included of planets as part of class discussion to connect properties of the planets and then compare them to the moon.
