Scientists have made a way to group, or classify, animals so they are easier to study and talk about. This depends on things they share in common such as their habitat, body type, how they reproduce and how they breathe. Learn about the 6 common different animal groups and then take our quiz to see if you can sort more creatures into their group.

Our solar system is made up of the below eight planets, as well as other objects including comets, asteroids and dwarf planets such as Pluto. Everything in the solar system orbits around the sun.
This solar system is in a galaxy called the Milky Way along with over a billion stars, all held together by the force of gravity. We cannot be sure how many galaxies are in the whole unniverse but some estimate it to be at least 200 billion some of which are as old as 13.2 billion years old.
This is the order of planets from the sun, if you need help remembering here is a rhyme:

The adult body is made up of 100 trillion cells, 206 bones, 600 muscles, and 22 internal organs. Every organ plays a vital role from our breathing to digestion of food and the cleaning and pumping of our blood around our body.
