Dear Mr. Smith, 

I really liked your presentation on saving energy. I also think we use too much energy. I know we can do better. We need to save as much energy as we can. I liked one of your ideas best.

Thanks so much for speaking,

Christmas at the Johnson family home is different every year. Last year they did a Secret Santa. That means you don't know who gave you your gift, so you have to guess who it was. Dennis got a toy truck. He guessed that his uncle gave it to him because his uncle was a truck driver. He was right!

This year, Dennis spent Christmas only with his brother Matthew and their parents. Dennis and Matthew each made three wishes for presents from their parents. They were going to guess their gift before opening the presents up. Dennis wished for a new baseball glove, a game CD, and a set of cards.

First, they ate ham and eggs for breakfast and their parents had coffee. It seemed as if hours and hours went by before it was finally time to open gifts. Dennis' present came wrapped in green paper with a gold ribbon. The box was square and about the size of a melon. He knew that it could not be the cards because that would come in a rectangular box. He also knew that it was not the game because the box would be much smaller. So, he guessed that his gift was a baseball glove. He was right!

Next was Matthew's turn to open his gift. He got a new bicycle helmet, the first thing he wished for. They both thanked their parents for another wonderful Christmas.

Our solar system has the Sun, eight planets, and a single asteroid belt. The largest planet in our solar system is Jupiter. An asteroid belt exists between Jupiter and Mars. Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and locates next to the third planet from the Sun, the Earth. Each planet has its own orbit around the Sun.

The planets were made from a cloud of extremely hot gas. The centers were made first as gravity attracted small pieces of dust to each object. As a planet grew, its gravity got stronger and attracted more and more pieces of dust until it finally became a young planet. 

Why did the gravity of a planet become stronger?

  • Hot gas exploded.
  • The planet grew in size.
  • The center of the planet became dust.

What is probably true about the solar system?

  • An asteroid belt exists between the Earth and Mars.
  • There were once many more planets.
  • The planets were made from hot gas.
