Planet Projects, part 1

We are finishing up our FOSS Planetary Science unit.  The culminating activity has the students creating a posting advertising vacation spots on their planet.  The students have to include information about their planet but have to do it in a way that entices a person to come and visit.

The first place each of the groups wanted to look for information was the planet posters that I had posted.

You have find them in my TpT or TN store.

Complete with other topics
or just the planets themselves.

They also spent time looking up information on the Internet.

 Here are some of the projects just getting started.

I printed each group one sheet of pictures.  If they wanted more, they had to bring them in themselves.  

Stayed tuned for part 2 when I show you how the posters turned out.
