Hi my name is Sydney. I am doing a project for writing and I chose to research Pluto because I wanted to learn more about Pluto . I am in 4th grade and I am 10 years old. I go to the school Van Meter Elementary.

Why is Pluto no longer a planet ?

: It is smaller than any other planet even the Earth's moon.

: It doesn't meet the necessary requirements needed to be a planet.

: It hasn't cleared the neighborhood of its orbits.

: Pluto didn't meet its 3rd criteria.

Pluto met every other standard except one important one.

What is Pluto ?

: The tiny planet is made of ice.

: Pluto's color is actually brown.

: Pluto is 4.5 billion years old.

: The sun is 2.757 billion miles from Pluto.

: Pluto is now considered a dwarf planet.

Some fun facts about Pluto !

: One way scientist study Pluto is by a telescope.

: Another way to study Pluto is to fly a rocket.

: A fact is it takes about 9 years to go in a rocket to get to Pluto.
