Solving a time problem

My group and I got a time problem to solve.

It was very enjoyable because we got to tell the class what we did and
how we solved the problem. The challenge for me was to present in front of
the class because sometimes I am shy to share things in front of people.

Who's the best

WALT: working as a team or collaborating.
This is a video about a story based on the planets and the sun.The fun thing about doing this was when we had to do the story together and when we got to draw the planets we wanted to be in the story. The challenge was when we had to present in front of the whole class.

Jupiter - Whos the best


Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun. Jupiter is 2 and
a half times more massive than all the other
planets in the solar system combined. Did you know
that Jupiter is a gas giant ? In fact, the mass of
Jupiter is 318 as massive as the earth. An important
fact you need to know is that the name Jupiter was
named after the king of the romans. Jupiter is so big
that all the planets in the solar system can fit inside it.
More than 1,300 Earths would fit into Jupiter. From
Earth, Jupiter is the brightest planet in the night sky.
