Product Description
Congratulations! You have won the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to journey into space for your family vacation. You have the opportunity to venture to any planet or galaxy in the universe as long as it is outside of our solar system.

Search the internet to choose a destination for your vacation. Explain where in the universe this place is located and why you chose it. Determine how far the location is from Earth. Then, calculate the amount of time in light-years it would take you travel to this place. You will use these numbers to answer additional questions.


This project requires students to research space locations and write numbers in scientific and standard notation. Students must also calculate unit conversions, distance, and time using numbers written in scientific notation. Great for an alternative assessment, end of year project, etc.

Product includes guided worksheet for recording answers and walking through step-by-step and a culminating essay-type question.
