Super Saturday YouTube Video of the Week: Why Isn't Pluto a Planet?


                                                                                                     
In Science, we are beginning our study of the solar system this next week.  I don't know about other places, but our Science textbooks are so old, they still have Pluto as a planet, and most parents of the kiddos we have, learned that Pluto was a planet (including myself), so it is sometimes difficult to explain why it isn't a planet anymore.  That's where this video can help out!  It gives a detailed description of why Pluto is not considered a planet anymore, and how scientists can change their conclusions as we learn more about our solar system.  Take a look and see what you think!
