Uranus or George?


The planet Uranus is well-known. But what if it was called George?

“The planet George”. Has a nice ring to it :)

Actually, this is a true fact: Uranus was almost named George. Almost. But it wasn’t!

What is a cool name that you think would be a good name for a planet?

BIG Lily Pads!

Pickin’ Your Teeth


Porcupines were once useful.  Their quills were once used as toothpicks!

Mars Sunset


The sunset on earth is a pretty red, pink and yellow.  What color is the sunset on Mars?

The sunset on Mars appears blue!  Not yellow or pink…It’s blue.  Imagine a sunset the color of the sky.  How weird!

Maybe the sky on Mars is a totally different color from the sky on earth…

Have you ever watched the sunset on earth?  What did you think of it?
