Space adventure

Something hit the ground and then... POP! There goes Saturn and then Neptune. What is going wrong here? Trying to attempt to make planets with balloons was out of control. Balloons were popping, planets were disappearing.

First we tried to do it outside but then it rained. We actually tried our experience on how much we learnt about our Solar System. Then students started co-operating together trying to help but it was just not working. SO then we got each sensible person to blow the balloons up, in many different colours. The one I liked best was Earth, the colour of Earth is blue but our one was orange.

The second attempt was very interesting, but again we ended up popping balloons.Our planets went in order from the one that was closest to the sun. Having a discussion about the universe was a change in many people's life, and what I mean by that is several people did not know that Pluto was a planet. Now it is called a dwarf planet. What a strange name.Learning about how the planets orbit around the sun was exciting.We did a comparison about, Mars,Venus,Neptune,Uranus,And many more.Demonstration and demonstration was getting a bit boring,in the end it was all worth it.

Mercury! I wonder if it is possible that we can live on that planet someday.Well If it was possible then I would just visit.Mercury is the fastest planet to move around the sun.Gravity in space is not like gravity we have here on earth, we have stronger gravity then space. Up in space we can float around in the air,that would be fun. Living on Earth is better,seeing nature running around in tress and on the ground is really cool,and fascinating.

Hey Aneisha

Sounds like you had an interesting esperience, your intro almost had me thinking the planets were falling :p

I wonder what it would be like to live on an orange earth...

You might want to have a look at the tense you're writing in.

Have fun and keep writing :)
