Our solar system is a popular topic in children’s education and is always fascinating. Children get to learn in wonderment, what’s out there, beyond what we can see. We have planets and moons, minor planets, dust and gas, asteroids and comets. Fantastically, all of these things spanning millions of miles, orbit the sun due to its massive gravitational pull. We’re all sitting on a rock hurling through space!!! I mean, there’s no better reason to color! Today, we have some fantastic solar system coloring pages to help them learn.
Our solar system in order consists of… the Sun, and then the planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Here’s a great way to remember, with a mnemonic to assist in memorizing… My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nachos (and pizza if you still want Pluto to be a planet)
Repetition, by coloring of course, can help you remember. And we have found some really great resources, so color! color away! And learn about our solar system.
