This pack contains resources needed to undertake a differentiated “Journey to Another Planet” Maths Investigation with grade 4, 5 and 6 students. In this investigation, students choose a planet to visit (out of four options) and use maths skills to answer questions and complete their flight tickets and passports.
It serves as more than a thematic activity and requires students to use maths skills to learn about the solar system. In part 1, students work individually or in groups on differentiated (3 different versions included) maths 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 (colour and black and white options)
*Passport (colour and black and white options)
There are links to American, English and Australian curriculum documents.
