The Problem with Pluto by David Hill
SJ Level 3 Feb 2012
WALT: Use a cline graphic organiser to order words with similar meanings
WALT: create an acrostic phrase
There are lots of different words that describe the comparative (to compare) size of an object.
Use this cline scale to find the words which indicate size and fit them along the scale (click to edit the image)
People used this acrostic phrase to remember the order of the planets: My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pies. Now that Pluto is no longer an official planet create your own acrostic sentence to remember the order of the planets.
3. Write a paragraph summary explaining if Pluto is a planet, and why/why not.
It's about Pluto, and about people who say who killed Pluto and who did not
know about Pluto. Pluto is smaller than the moon. It takes 200 year for just one day,
and Pluto is our ninth planet.
