Exploring the Solar System

Adult Kits for September 12-October 8, 2022.

Terrestrial Planets

The inner-most planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, are the four terrestrial planets in our solar system.  These planets are named "terrestrial" due to their compact size and rocky surfaces.  In this week's kit, explore all four and learn why Earth is by far the best place to live!
