Comets and Asteroids: Space Rocks

Comets and Asteroids: Space Rocks

by Greg Roza




The Gareth Stevens Leveled Readers in the series Our Solar System introduce beginning readers to key concepts in the early elementary science curriculum. Our solar system is home to many different worlds. The planet Mercury is hot and rocky. Neptune is cold and stormy. In between are the rest of the planets, including our home planet, Earth. The books in the Our Solar System series take readers on an exciting journey from the sun to dwarf planet Pluto-and beyond! It's time to blast off and explore our solar system.

Out among the planets and moons of our solar system, much smaller chunks of rock and ice orbit the sun. We call them comets and asteroids. Most asteroids orbit the sun between Mars and Jupiter. Comets come hurtling in from the deepest reaches of space. Open Comets and Asteroids: Space Rocks to find out more about our solar system's smallest inhabitants.
