Core Competent Canadians

What did you know about the Core Competencies before this activity? What did you learn?

Before today, I understood the basics of how to write a core competencies sheet and connect it with my work and projects. I learned how to connect them with experiences and people rather than objects or words. I now understand how it connects to our learning and the new curriculum.

How can your knowledge of the Core Competencies help you in your school life? Personal life?

Core Competencies help you to reflect and understand how your brain works and how you can develop your skills as a student. They can help you evolve as a person and understand others around you.

Data Visualization Infographic – Largest Moons in the Solar System

This Infographic shows the 15 largest moons in our solar system.

I chose to do a drawing/infographic because I love to draw and thought that this project would be a great opportunity to use these skills. I chose to make it based around space because I have always been fascinated by it. I decided to base it on sizes of objects in the solar system, specifically moons. The data table I found gave information on their radius’ (I turned it into diameter in the infographic) and the planet they orbit (+Pluto). I found the project to be a creative and fun way to take data and make it more interesting.
