Life in outer space - meeting how humans meet their needs. This lesson is a look at how humans are affected in outer space and what needs to be provided and done, to meet their basic needs. This lesson package includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the presentation), an auto-graded Exit Ticket to check student understanding, 15 videos, Predict/Observe/Explain activity as well as a document that follows the presentation. The lesson is fun and applicable with 15 videos embedded into the presentation and many opportunities for inquiry-based learning and discussion. Most of the videos were created aboard the International Space Station and answer many questions such as how astronauts shower, eat, and many more common questions.

  • This lesson includes both Office and Google formats for ALL resources. The presentation is in PowerPoint and Google Slides while all documents contain Word and Google Doc versions.
  • Your resource is perfect for distance learning and integrates seamlessly with Google Classroom as I've included a link that will automatically create a copy of the resources and put them directly into your Google Drive with one click.
  • Purchase --> Open --> Click --> Assign to your students

Having both options allows you to use either without worrying about formatting issues as all the work has already been done for you. It safeguards you in case your department or school decides to go Google 100% and allows you as well as your students to access everything no matter where you are or what kind of equipment is being used.

The student version of the presentation contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
