Putting information into a rhyme can make it easier to remember.

Here’s an example to help you memorise the order of the planets:


Close to the Sun, hottest and between us
Are the burning fireballs of Mercury and Venus.

Next come homely Earth then Mars, then gas giants Jupiter and Saturn –
Are you starting to see a planetary pattern?

Icy Uranus and Neptune follow, and, bringing up the rear,
Humble Pluto – no longer a planet – sheds a tear.
