FC: My life story! Me=Nellie the Star
1: To My owner Maggie, & Supportive friends!
2: Hello, My name is Nellie, am a star. I was just born | Nebula Stage 1st
3: -Hello my name is Nellie the star, I started out as a ball of dust and gas. -Gravity helped me form myself. Gravity pulled dust and gases together and formed a sphere. ME! -As my sphere becomes denser, it gets hotter and hotter. -Then, the hydrogen becomes helium this is called process of nuclear fusion.
4: Main Sequence Star- Childhood
5: I loose some of my material at this time. I loose my material in a big explosion. Once I die most of my material goes back in space. I shrink once I loose my hydrogen. I change very little.
6: Giants, super giants and- adult
7: I become a red giant and become cooler because I used all of my hydrogen. Since I lost my hydrogen, it cause my center to shrink. Then the atmosphere makes me grow large. Finally I turn into a super giant.
8: White Dwarf- the end
9: At the end of my life I am small hot star, Also, I am leftover from an old star. I have no hydrogen left so I cannot generate energy. As a white dwarf I can shine for billions of years before I fully cool down. I am dim star at this stage.

12: My thought of this project. I think that this was a very cool project. I like this a lot becauseI use something new. I also learned about technology, this will be very helpful later on. This was a perfect project because it is like a craft on-line were you have to be creative. I hope we work on Mix book again!
