  2. The earth consists of 70% water, which is only 0.25% of the total mass of the planet. 8% of the earth consists of volcanoes, 11% is fertile land used to grow crops, 10% is covered in ice, and a fifth of the earth’s surface is desert lands.
  3. The temperature of the earth’s core is around 7,500 Kelvin, which is hotter than the surface of the sun!
  4. The axis of the earth is tilted at an angle of 23 degrees. This causes us to have four seasons in a year.

  5. There are three different types of planets; terrestrial planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars), they have very solid, rocky surfaces, gas giants (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune), composed mostly of frozen hydrogen and helium, and dwarf planets (Pluto, Ceres and Eris), smaller round planets that orbit the sun.
