Included in this download is Issue #1 of Rex the Astronaut. This issue focuses on Back to School.
Rex is a young boy who is sent to Mars with his family. Rex and his baby sister are the first two kids on Mars. This allows him to have a hand in creating the society on Mars. Rex can't do this alone and will ask your students with help. Rex will send a letter and at least three worksheets each issue.
Your students will be given challenges from all four core subjects. Math, Science, Social Studies, and English will all be used in the challenges or activities throughout the series.
For the first series of issues, I have 15 issues planned. I will be offering a season pass for a discounted price. Pre-buy and save! I will release issues at least weekly. The schedule is as follows.
