    This was such an amazing resource when I was teaching the Solar System. I laminated this as well as other diagrams and gave this to students to support their learning - it gave them more opportunities to understand the content.

    No Pluto? I know poor old Pluto dropped out of "planet" contention previously but has been back for a while now! :)

      Hi Tammy, thank you for your comment. Poor old Pluto! It's still classified as a dwarf planet, so doesn't make the cut unfortunately :)
