If you had to teach AP CSP unit 5 in one month (approximately 12- 90 minute classes), which lessons would you omit?

Dear colleagues,

Due to snow days this year, we are a bit behind in the AP Computer Science Principles curriculum. As the goal is to finish the “Create Task” by April 30 and I only have 9- 90 minute classes in April with my students (and 8 of them have to be used for the students to work independently on their Create Task), I realize I only have 12 - 90 minute periods to get through what looks like a meaty unit 5. Does anyone have any advice on which Unit 5 lessons I can shorten or omit completely and the students will still be able to perform admirably on the “Create Task”?

Thanks for any suggestions you have.
