Mars Poem


Martians are coming,
Martians are here,
They're from the 4th planet,
Oh-my and oh-dear!
Their planet looks red,
From iron oxide,
What should we do?
Run, fight, or hide?
Their planet's named Mars,
Half of Earth’s size,
But those Martians look giant,
Have lasers for eyes!

Martians are here,
A fact we can’t hide,
They came in a spaceship,
A long, long, long ride!
But news is now out,
From Fiji to France,
Martians are friendly,
They came here to dance!

Mars is the fourth planet from the sun.
It is often called the red planet because iron oxide on its surface gives it a reddish color.
Mars has similar seasons to those we have on Earth (because its axis has a similar tilt as Earth’s), except that the seasons last about twice as long. A year on Mars, or one complete trip around the Sun, also takes Mars about twice as long as Earth- 686 days.
It is believed that Mars once supported water and oceans on its surface, but now there is only ice at its polar ice caps.  Mars has two moons:

In the coming years, NASA and other groups will send new rovers to Mars to gather more information. Click here for a video of Curiosity, NASA’s latest Mars rover:
