Iris was excited to be teaching astronomy this term and she had her entire lesson planned out in her head. She started out by writing her name on the board so the students would know her name:
Professor Iris Callahan

She thought it would be best that she would use pictures as she taught each lesson. She thought that maybe it would help the students see what they were learning about. For her first lesson for her introduction class she thought that she would start out by teaching the first and second years about the planets in the solar system.

Kate entered the classroom, still feeling grumpy about being chosen as a Prefect. She greeted the Professor - who was new and quite young - then sat down at the back of the room. Katie hoped that she wouldn't give them a boring lecture - she was already feeling sleepy and yawned several times as she came here. She had a look at the diagram on the blackboard. Planets... hm... I already heard about them in my No-Maj primary school. They always say there are UFOs on Mars. She didn't try to find out which one of the planets was actually Mars, as she didn't care that much. She put her head on her arms, already dreaming about the end of the lesson.

Harriet was sluggish arriving to her astronomy lesson with how late in the evening it was but she was also ready to learn once she reached the class. She greeted the professor who looked young compared to other she had seen around campus and at her prior school before she transferred here. She hoped making friends would be at least somewhat easy since she didn't know anyone here. She saw one girl with a special badge but her head was down so she figured best not to approach her so she instead found a seat and set up her things.

Welcome everyone now I'm not going to start off the lesson by having you all introduce yourselves since I would much rather get to what the lesson is about instead. We are going to learn about the planets but I'm going to divide them into the outer and inner planets of the solar system. Now can anyone name the inner planets from memory without looking at your textbooks? I'll give points to someone if they can name one of the inner planets from memory. Iris wanted to challenge the students so she could find out what they knew about the inner planets.

((Class has started if your character joins the class at a later time just post that you were already there.))

Kate looked up, trying to think about the professor's question. Inner and outer planets... Could inner ones be closer to us, outer ones more far...? That would make sense. She still couldn't forget that thing about Mars. As far as she knew, it was close to Earth... At least as close to it, to have the possibility to examine it with space probes. She raised her hand and said: Is Mars okay for inner planets? - she asked the professor, then she yawned.

"Yes that is correct miss Babson five points to Wampus Mars is one of the inner planets. The inner planets are Mercury,Venus,Earth and Mars."

"Each of the inner planets have different surface temperatures with different highs and lows which I will have listed below which you might want to make a note of."
Mercury-high:800 degrees Fahrenheit (430 degrees Celsius). Low:-280 degrees Fahrenheit (-170 degrees Celsius).
Venus-864 degrees Fahrenheit (462 degrees Celsius)
Earth-about 61 degrees F (16 C).
Mars-minus 80 degrees F (minus 60 degrees C).
"Now can anyone tell me why Venus has the hottest surface temperature?"

Harriet was listening and had drawn a complete blank on what the inner planets were so she was glad the other girl knew what they were otherwise there was a chance she would be voluntold and that would be embarrassing. She made a note of the inner planets since she needed them committed to memory if she wanted to earn house points. She was listening to the next question and raised her hand, figuring she could give it at least an educated guess. Is it because of the thick atmosphere in relation to how close it is to the sun? She was completely questioning if that was even remotely correct, she just remembered reading that Venus had a thick atmosphere and figured it had to be close to the sun if it was hot.

Kate was surprised that Mars earned her five points. She scribbled some quick notes about the surface temperatures, and tried to think about an answer that would be good enough for the next question of the professor. Why Venus...? Mercury is closer to the Sun, right? - she thought, frowning and scrathing the side of her head. Thank goodness, the other girl came up with a try that made sense. 'Professor... is that something about the orb of the planet?' - she added awkwardly, not hoping to get any points for it.

"Some would think that Mercury would have the hottest surface temperature since it is the first planet from the sun but it is actually Venus that has the hottest surface temperature. It has something to do with Most of this heat cannot escape back into space because it is blocked by the very thick atmosphere of Venus. The heat becomes trapped and builds up to extremely high temperatures. This trapping of heat by the atmosphere is called the greenhouse effect because it is similar to how the glass in a greenhouse traps heat." Iris looked around to see if there were any other questions before they moved on to the outer planets.

Kate could only let out a small 'Oh' for surprise, and scribbled some notes on her parchment about the atmosphere trapping the heat. So it was the T-bird girl, who could get it right. But Katie knew it clearly that she wasn't a scientist, and she was her in school to learn. She looked up at the Professor, waiting for the continuation. She was about to get bored and hungry, so she wasn't only waiting for a continuation, but for the end of the lesson too.

Moving on Iris put up a picture of some other planets. She looked at the students who she thought that she could give them a surprise question to see if they were paying attention. She smiled as she said "now we're moving on from the inner planets here's a lovely question for you all to answer what is the classification of planets that are further away from the sun and what are their names?" She looked around to see which student was paying enough attention to the lesson so far and would be interested in answering the question that she wrote on the board.
