Space….the final frontier! Flippables, foldables and many more interactive activities. This hands on, engaging , complete IB PYP unit of inquiry ties in with the theme of How the World Works and Earth science according to the New Generation Science standards. The central idea is how space exploration leads to our understanding of our place in the universe. It has been planned predominantly around the key concepts of form, function, connection and change.
Within this 80 page bundle are inter-disciplinary lessons and inquiry based interactive activities that cover literacy, math, science and social studies. Everything from the history of space travel, the current status of our solar system, classification and facts about celestial bodies and their patterns of movement to life on other planets, and the future of space exploration is covered within the lines of inquiry. You will even find rocket science within this packet!!
