Space Shelter. Grades 3-5.
Rushton, Erik; Ryan, Emily; Swift, Charles
Based on a hypothetical situation that aliens have invaded Earth and humans must relocate to another planet, students design a shelter that can be built on another planet to insure their survival. Students research the characteristics of a planet of their choice and consider how to get to that planet from Earth, determine which five items that they will take along, and why they chose those items. This activity uses a time frame of 100 minutes. (Author/SOE)
