This resource can be used as a whole group, small group, or independent creativity-evoking extension project.
It includes three activities:
1. Pack It Up!: Students evaluate what they might take on an extended space trip and "pack" their suitcase.
2. Design Your Own Spacecraft: This STEM challenge encourages students to think critically about the attributes of effective spacecraft then design and construct it using everyday materials. A technology-based sharing component is included, but optional depending on your access to technology.
3. Anybody Home?: Students use creativity to "invent" a creature they find on their journey.
