This Spanish Easy Review vocabulary quiz will continue the series of Spanish science quizzes. The science quizzes have been created to help you learn not only your regular science lessons, but to help you know the same information in Spanish. This quiz will not add anything to your normal science class so you do not need to worry about having to learn more scientific information but you do have to learn more Spanish words. That way when someone asks you a question about the Solar System, you can choose to answer them in either English or Spanish! It will make you look doubly smart!
So now let¡¯s look at some vocabulary words that are related to the solar system.
|English||Spanish||Pronounced (Phonetically) As|
|solar||solar||sō-lăr (This is a neutral word.)|
|system||(el) sistema||sĭs-těm-ă (Notice this is a masculine word.)|
|planet||(el) planeta||plăn-ā-tă (Notice this is a masculine word.)|
|comet||(el) cometa||cō-mā-tă (Notice this is a masculine word.)|
|cosmic||(el/la) c¨®smico/a||cōs-mē-cō / cōs-mē-că|

|Jupiter||(el) J¨²piter||Hoo-pē-těr (Notice the 'j' sounds like an 'h'.)|
|axis||(el) eje||ā-hāy (Notice the 'j' has an 'h' sound.)|
That may seem like quite a long vocabulary list but many of the Spanish words are very similar to their English counterpart so it shouldn¡¯t be too difficult to remember them. Take your time to read the word, say it out loud in the Spanish pronunciation and pay attention to the spelling. When you are ready, move on to the quiz section. Many of the items in the quiz were also given in the Grade 6 Science The Solar System 1 and The Solar System 2 quizzes.
