The terrestrial planets are small in size and mass, they are rocky, solid and dense, all four terrestrial planets have 3 moons between them. They are warm and close to the sun. Terrestrial planets USUALLY have thin atmosphere. The Gas Giants are huge in size, have rings made from dust, debris, ice, rock. They very cold (not close to the sun at all) and light (made from gas.) They have several moons between them (167, I think) and lastly Gas Giants usually have thick and deep atmosphere.
