Take your class on a space adventure! This student-centered unit will invite students to work together to determine which of our other planets is capable of being colonized! This pack includes the following:
Teacher's Survival Guide (6 pages)
Mission Organizer (13 pages, to be distributed to each student)
Data Research Binder Materials (13 pages; 2 pages per research group, 1 page of labels for binders).
In this unit, students research a different planet each day. First, students are organized into Research Groups, each of which is tasked to find information relating to their group's subject, one of: Geography, Gravity, History, Interior, Time, and Weather. After the groups have recorded their findings, they meet with their Mission Teams to discuss the possibilty of colonizing said planet.
My students had a blast completing this unit, and I hope yours do too!
Please note that research materials are not included and must be supplemented separately through either library books or access to computer resources.
The teacher's guide lists the Indiana Academic Standards that the unit supplements or meets.
