Nancy B.’s Helpful Handouts: Pluto and its History

Nancy Balter, a 7th & 8th grade math and science teacher for more than 10 years and our math and science product manager, always has cool ideas for teaching and helping kids learn! Here is a helpful out-of-this-world handout that will be sure to grab your kids’ attention and launch it to new heights!

A word from Nancy about the handout:
“This worksheet would be useful to teachers who have students asking about why “poor” Pluto was downgraded from its planet status to dwarf planet. This worksheet also helps students understand the new definition that is being used to define a planet.”

Fun Fact: Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson is often credited with being the first one to downgrade Pluto (he’s gotten some hate mail from 3rd graders over this!). Dr. Tyson’s voice is on our new Planet Scale!
