How does our Solar System work?

Through personalised inquiries the students have been teaching and learning about Space, the Planets and our Solar System. During the afternoons the students have begun sharing their presentations. They have not only benefited from the peer tutoring but they are developing their Public Speaking skills also. It has been a fantastic collaborative activity.
Riley chose to investigate the planets and their role in our Solar System.

  1. Hi Senior G!
    Wow Riley, your powerpoint was really good and I learnt a lot from it. I especially loved the pictures you put on and it was a great way to present. You even taught me about a planet I have never heard about, Ceres. Well done!

  3. Dear Riley,
    Congrats on a successful project presentation!
    I like how you put a colour picture on eachnslide so their was a visual of each planet. It was clever to do a dwarf planetthat we hadn’t heard of before.
    My favourite part was the way you ordered your facts on each slide. The facts were interesting and kept us engaged.
    Keep up the great work!

  13. Hi Riley,

    I’m Simon, and would love to comment on your presentation.

    Looking at your slide show, was great! I have learnt about the planet, “Ceres” – which was interesting! I have enjoyed your presentation about the Solar System, as it also had the correct format. It also had the right images, with was good. I think your idea to use this to show everyone, was appropriate.

  14. Hi Riley,
    Great presentation.
    I like how you did a planet most of the class had never heard of, it was ceres, and I never knew that planet existed. What was your favourite part of your presentation?
    It was great to see your presentation and I thought it was really interesting.
