Space Activity - Students will work as apart of a crew and individually to pack for a long voyage to Mars in this fun and activity. Using the organizers provided, students will record each item they chose to bring on their journey, why they chose to bring it, and reflect on their choices. This project is great to introduce any space unit or to develop your class’ reasoning and analytical skills.
Each item that is load will earn points; however, not all the items have the same value. Therefore, students will need to use the information provided to decide which items will earn them the most points.
There are two parts to this mission:
PART I: Class Mission
PART II: Individual Mission – Students will try to beat the class’ score by packing for their own trip to Mars and analyze the results afterwards.
