This assignment combines the viewing of a documentary (available on Youtube), some internet research and the generation and defense of personal opinions.
The real question is, do Aliens exist? Are they friendly or out to conquer Earth?
Page 1 - Alien Invasion - prepares students for watching the documentary, Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking, s01e01 Aliens.
Pages 2-3 - Alien Invasion the Sequel - allows for analysis of the documentary as well as charts to help students determine whether or not they believe that aliens exist and if they are hostile or not.
