Why do kids need to learn about the solar system?

Allowing your kids to learn more about the solar system can help them compare Earth with the other planets in our solar system. Here is some information about each planet to guide you forward in using this solar system game for kids as an educational tool.


the planet Jupiter

This is the largest of all of the planets in our solar system. Jupiter has dozens of moons.


solar system

This is the smallest planet in our solar system and is the closest to the sun. Mercury has longer days and short years due to its rotation.



This planet is known to have the highest winds ever, and much higher than we’d ever see on planet Earth.


the planet Mars

This planet is closest to Earth and has the highest mountain in our solar system that measures at 16 miles high.


the planet Saturn

This planet is mostly gas and doesn’t have a surface like we do on planet Earth. Saturn rings around it that many kids may be familiar with seeing or hearing about.


planet Earth

This is the only planet in our solar system known to have water. Earth is the only planet to be known to have life in our solar system.


the planet Uranus

This planet rolls instead of rotating like the other planets in our solar system. Uranus is most known for having 20 year-long seasons because of how it rolls as opposed to rotates like other planets do.


the planet Venus

This planet has so many hot gasses that it would be impossible to live on Venus. This planet is most known for all of the greenhouse gases that surround it.
