This PowerPoint Presentation is great for introducing the Science Fiction genre or as a culminating activity, as it explores the question "What if?" These activities are aimed at middle school gifted and talented students, but can be tweaked for any level student in a classroom that utilizes cooperative learning. Students have discussion questions, scenarios to analyze and generate their own questions, and then opportunities to research and develop solutions to their problems. The activity concludes with posting findings and responding to those of others. Students will be challenged to listen to other ideas, sort through for plausible answers, engage in meaningful discussion, and provide feedback. A video to generate background knowledge, links to websites, teacher notes,and a rubric is provided on the presentation. Thank you for choosing NoBox resources.
