This planets song is to help children memorize the planets in order from the sun. It lists each of the eight planets and also includes the catchy mnemonic of My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos.
Until recently there were nine planets, but Pluto is no longer classed as a planet. Previous mnemonics such as My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas have had to be modified to fit the new classification of planets in our solar system.
Learning about our solar system, our galaxy and the universe can be very inspirational for kids. It expands their horizons and stimulates their imagination and at least a basic knowledge of astronomy will be expected of them in school.
Guruparents’ planets song features the planets in order and with accurate relative sizes – though of course the space between the planets is not to scale.
