Star Dome

Today we went into the Star Lab with Room 9. What an amazing experience this was. We not only learnt about the stars in our night sky but also interesting facts about the planets, meteorites and comets. We had a burning question!!! Is Pluto a planet? Has it been reclassified again? No! It's not a planet. It is not the 9th planet in our solar system. Pluto is part of an asteroid belt and is a dwarf planet, a little bit bigger than the Earths moon.

  1. I am glad you managed to sort out our confusion about Pluto's status as a planet. I have been learning lots interesting facts from Mark about space.
