Solar System: A Look at the Planets has taught me that each of the planets has a unique characteristic.From Earth the other planets of our solar system look like roaming stars, but thanks to telescopes and spacecraft we know these pinpricks of light are actually worlds unto themselves, many with moons that are just as fascinating as they are.

4 Earth, Sun, and Moon: Motion of the Moon
I enjoying reading about the phases of the Moon. I even purchased Oreo cookies and review the phases of the Moon with my daughter. The Moon rotates around the Earth in an ellipse every 27.3 days. The Earth's gravity causes one side of the Moon to always face the Earth. The length of a day on the Moon is 29.53 Earth days. The angle of the Sun on the Moon, with respect to the Earth causes the phases of the Moon. An eclipse of the Moon is when the Earth blocks light from the Sun. An eclipse of the Sun is when the Moon blocks the view of the Sun from observers on Earth.

3 Ocean's Effect on Weather and Climate
Ocean's Effect on Weather and Climate has been a very interesting Sci Pak to read. I was able to learn about sea levels are rising and oceans are becoming warmer. Longer, more intense droughts threaten crops, wildlife and freshwater supplies. From polar bears in the Arctic to marine turtles off the coast of Africa, our planet’s diversity of life is at risk from the changing climate. Climate change poses a fundamental threat to the places, species and people’s livelihoods WWF works to protect. To adequately address this crisis we must urgently reduce carbon pollution and prepare for the consequences of global warming, which we are already experiencing.
