Friday’s Factoid Week 14

We’re studying space rocks right now and pulled out a rhyme we made up last go-around to remember all the different kinds. You can check out the original by clicking here.

Dirty snowball out in space

With smudgy tail making chase.

Ice melts off and leaves behind

Dirt and rocks that sometimes find…

Their way through Earth’s thick atmosphere

But burn all up before getting here.

Except for sometimes they crash on through

And hopefully don’t land on you!

Friday’s Factoid 16 (by Titus and Mom!)

Titus drew such a cool asteroid last week that I asked him to illustrate a rhyme we made up to help us remember the difference between the other different kinds of space rocks we’ve been learning about: Comets, Meteoroids, Meteors, and Meteorites.

Comet:

Dirty snowball out in space with smudgy tail making chase...

Meteoroid:
Ice melts off and leaves behind dirt and rocks that sometimes find...
Ice melts off and leaves behind dirt and rocks that sometimes find…

Meteor:
their way through Earth's thick atmosphere but burn all up before getting here...
their way through Earth’s thick atmosphere but burn all up before getting here…

Meteorite:
Except for sometimes they crash on through and hopefully don't land on YOU!
