Solar System Worksheets


PLuto has recently lost its planetary status. Originally these worksheets were made when Pluto was considered a planet. We've recently added versions of these worksheets reflecting the change. These modified worksheets will have the text w/o Pluto next to them meaning that the content takes into account this change in status. As a teacher you can choose what you want to teach.
