This project is excellent for use as a formative research project or a unit summative assessment. Students need to research and use what they have learned about the solar system to complete a mission to another astronomical body. This activity is very flexible and can be used for curricula of varying depths. It requires students to use what they have learned to solve typical problems of space travel. It can be used as a group or individual assignment. This includes two differentiated assessment/project choices. One is more abstract, involves more creativity and thinking but less writing. The other involves more research and reporting and less creative thinking and problem solving. Both assess students knowledge of an astronomical object.
