A quick guide to Jupiter, which is immense and the largest of all the planets. It is liquid in form and has many moons, the largest of which, Ganymede, is bigger than Mercury.
NOTE: This clip was factually accurate when originally broadcast.
Pupils could use this clip to learn about Jupiter's main features. Afterwards, pupils could study the other planets (using more BBC clips) recording similar and contrasting facts, as well as locating their position in relation to Earth and the Sun. The children could choose to study one planet in detail and convince other pupils of its significance, using persuasive language and impressive scientific facts, as shown in the clip.
