We all remember trying to learn the names and order of the planets in our Solar System in grade school. Some of us got pretty thrown off by the removal and addition of Pluto on the list.
For me, the Blue’s Clues Planet Song we the best way to remember the planets and a fun fact about each of them. Below, you will find the lyrics to this adorable and helpful song.
Another popular way to remember the planets is using mnemonic devices where the first letter of each planet is the first letter of each word in a silly sentence. The one I remember is “My Very Eloquent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas.”
Mnemonic-device.com has ideas for some other great silly sentences to help us remember the order of the planets. Below you will find some of my favorites, some of which have a “P” word at the end for Pluto, and some of which do not.
