This pack contains resources needed to undertake a differentiated “Journey to Another Planet” Math Investigation with grade 4, 5 and 6 students. In this investigation, students choose a planet to visit (out of four options) and use math skills to answer questions and complete their flight tickets and passports.
It serves as more than a thematic activity and requires students to use math skills to learn about the solar system. In part 1, students work individually or in groups on differentiated (3 different versions included) math planning black line masters. The tasks are as follows and are linked to their relevant math concept:
*Flight Length - estimation and operations
*Departure and Arrival Times - operations and time
*Weight - mass and operations
*Passport Information - time and operations
*Planet Exploration - scaling
*Flight ticket (color and black and white options)
*Passport (color and black and white options)
There are links to American, English and Australian curriculum documents.
