Earth


Since we're learning about all the planets, we can't skip the best one... Earth!

(from: wikipedia - earth)

Earth is sometimes known as the Blue Planet because from outer space it is blue from all the water.

Well over half of the planet is water, unlike any other planet in our solar system.

It is the 3rd closest to the sun, and the 5th largest planet.

And as far as we can tell so far, Earth is the only planet in our solar system with life!
