Have you ever wondered what life would look like on other planets? What if that planet orbited a Type O star? What if it has less gravity than on Earth? What if the planet was a water-world, was tidally locked with it's star, or was actually the moon of a gas giant?
This project allows your students to use their creativity to design their own food chain of aliens based on a randomized extraterrestrial planet. The packet includes a worksheet for the students to use while designing their alien life, and an explanation of the likely outcome of each trait the planet has. The project is designed to have your students create a visual of their aliens and give a presentation to the class where they explain the reason behind their creative choices.
