Well, the sun's a hot star,
Mercury's hot too.
Venus is the brightest planet,
Earth's home to me and you!
Mars is the red one,
Jupiter's most wide.
Saturn's got those icy rings,
and Uranus spins on it's side.
Neptune's really windy,
and plutoid's reallllllly small.
Well, you wanted to name the plants,
and now we've named them all.

These have hand/body motions. I stole it from and old blue's clue's episode.

A center I used to work at had a toy that would sing that song, which wouldn't have been so bad except that you could push on each planet and it would sing that planet's line of the song. "Jupiter's most wide" is nails on a chalk board to me. Have I ever mentioned that I hate electronic toys?

We did a space song last month!

We sang this to "Farmer and the Dell"

(While holding hands and walking in a circle around a yellow pillow)
The Earth Orbits Sun, The Earth Orbits Sun,
We learn about our solar system
The Earth Orbits Sun

(While spinning in a circle by ourselves)
The Earth has one moon, The Earth has one moon,
We learn about our solar system
The Earth has one moon

(While jumping to a wide shape for wax and a skinny shape for wane)
The moon waxes and wanes, The moon waxes and wanes
We learn about our solar system

Hurray for space!
The moon waxes and wanes
