This learning activity was used as a culminating project for our outer space and planet unit. It is cross-curricular encompassing both science and language arts (and a little bit of math!)
Students research a planet and create a passport full of information. The students then apply their knowledge and create a 3D alien that could possibly live on the plant they have researched. You end the project with a Welcome to Earth! celebration where students "interview" the other aliens to learn about the different planets.
This project includes:
-standards, supplies and suggested research sources
-student research packet and graphic organizer
-project guidelines and suggestions
-materials for Welcome to Earth celebration
The students absolutely loved this project, and it was an excellent measure of what they knew and the application of this knowledge. Everyone was so excited about the aliens' arrival!
