Mrs.Wiggins Class: #Planets are Cool Project

Who saw the blood moon this morning?
The blood moon is created when the sun, Earth, and moon are in perfect alignment.  Mrs. Wiggins' class has been researching planets for the past couple of days. We have also been researching stars and the asteroid belt. So far we have learned that the planets are separated in to two groups, the outer planets and the inner planets. The inner planets are mostly made out of rock and they all have atmospheres except Mercury. The outer planets are called the gas giants and all of them have a set of rings that go around them. In our class we have been split in to groups, each group is either researching a planet and its moons, the sun, the asteroid belt, or a star.  There is another blood moon scheduled to come on October 8th.
