Ice Giants

The farthest planets from the sun in our solar system, Uranus and Neptune, are known as the ice giants.   These two planets contain proportionally more ice in their cores than gas in their atmospheres.  It can also rain diamonds on these two giants!  Enjoy this week's kit containing interesting facts and notes about our most distant solar system neighbors.
