These Bloom's Taxonomy inspired activities go beyond the scope of the Solar System. The students will need to have learnt about the planets and their properties as well as the International Space Station and how explorations have impacted on human life (space spin-off technology).
The activities will allow students to make connections between the relevance of space exploration and how learning more about the universe impacts our daily lives and allows for technology advances (cordless drills, water filters, UV glasses).
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking and build upon the work that you have taught them about the subject. Staring with basic skills such as knowledge and understanding, students then will be challenged to apply facts that they learnt and apply it in creative ways.
For example, one task asks students to create a recipe for a dish that can be eaten in Space. Here, the students will be required to compile information and create something innovative that would be a new and successful idea.
It is great to be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. In the classroom, I do not expect the students to complete an entire column before moving on but like them to complete at least 3 before advancing to the next skill set.
As a heads up, some of these activities will prove to be of more value when completed together as a whole class, and therefore you may want to select those activities and use them as class competitions or whole class learning experiences.
