  1. 1)
    All the gas giant planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
    Neptune and Mars’s names: the red planet and the cloudy planet.
    Jupiter is the biggest planet (I thought it was Saturn.)
    Just from everything I’ve learnt a lot of things to do with space like what a constellation is and Stuff like that.
    And all the other drawn planets like Titan.

  2. 1)I’ve learnt that Neptune has this thing called the great dark spot and Jupiter has the great spot Jupiters spot is super hot but Neptunes is stormy and cold but it disappeared after 100 years ago or something but Jupiters still has the spot

  3. 2)I did not know that Pluto had moons I thought he was a no moon planet or something but plutos moons are called nix,Hydra,Charon those three moons a plutos that’s really cool

  4. Solar System & Space Exploration
    I did know that:
    * Pluto is a dwarf planet

    Fact three that Saturn his is the second largest planet and the in the bruity.
    Fact four that Mercury is the smallest plannet.
    Fact five that Jupiter is the largest and the king of the planets.

  7. Solar System and Space Exploration-
    1) Gullies on Mars suggest that water and perhaps life may once have existed there.
    2) the Sun is 10 times bigger than Jupiter, the biggest planet.
    3) it takes eight minutes for the light to travel 150,000km from the Sun to Earth.

    2) the sun is a giant star.
    3) at the centre of the solar system is the Sun.

  8. Probably my favourite task was the videos because all I had to do was listen to them and gain knowledge and then put it onto our blog.
    And the task that helped me learn the most was the the videos as well because they all had different facts to represent their video so you can watch more videos and gain more knowledge whilst watching them to which will then help us on our test that we will be doing on planets of our solar system. And the videos represent so much knowledge that will help doing our test to get higher grades.

    * Mars is much colder than Earth
    * Mars has less gravity then Earth

  19. Did you know Saturn has rocks and dust Saturn mostly makes Astroids hit the moon but it’s nearly impossible because Saturn has really strong gravity what makes things closer to it like garbage getting sent to space so Saturn has the most strongest gravity in the universe

  20. 1) I have learnt that Uranus spins on its side.
    2) The sun is 10 times bigger than jupiter and Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system.

    3) that an asteroid hit rissa
    4) that comets are ice

  22. Fact one
    I found out that there are more than one dwarf planets in our solar system.
    Fact two
    And learnt that Titan the planet of Neptune has fully created an atmosphere and is the only moon to have one.
    Fact three
    I learnt that Titan was once an asteroid that cane I to Neptune gravity pull area and got stuck and became a moon of Neptune.

  26. I didn’t realise that Neptune had a great dark spot.
    It really interested me in what it actually was until I searched it up and read the text on one of those sheets. Neptune and Uranus really interests me considering No one knows about those planets and I would love to find out more about them.

    I think the blog taskes and the planet sheets helped me have a stronger understanding about the planets. Personally I think It’s how you explain and do things help me have a stronger understanding about space.😛

  27. Write 4 fact you knew and 4 facts you just learnt
    4 fact I know.
    1) in 2006 they started calling Pluto a dawn planet.
    2) Neptune is could
    3) Triton is colder than Uranus.
    4)

  28. The sun is more then 100000 degrees hot that’s why it is so hot that it light on fire it is the only star in the universe people say that’s not true because every night you see a star but that is a night star but the only star is the sun in the morning

  29. Write 5 facts you have learnt

    1) I didn’t know that the sun is ten times bigger than Jupiter.
    2) Earth is about 4 and a half billion years old.
