A dwarf planet



An orbit



Listen and read along to these sentences.

Who gets to decide what's considered a planet and what's not? It's not fair! Pluto is as much of a planet as all the others in our solar system.

Pluto is just too far and too strange to be considered a planet. It's an insult to all the other planets! There's just something not quite right about Pluto.

What's going to happen to all those people who need Pluto's letter 'P' to remember the order of the planets? Tons of people memorized 'My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas.'

Without Pluto, these mnemonics are all rendered useless! What is your very excellent mother going to serve now? Just the number nine? Ridiculous! We need Pluto.

Practice reading those sentences aloud and record your voice or say the sentences out to your class.
