Assigned: Monday, March 3rd
In-Class Research Days: Monday, March 9th and Tuesday, March 10th
Final Due Date: MONDAY, MARCH 30th (Please note: this has changed from the original date...it says 2/27 on all of the paperwork as well. The new due date for both the alien and the passport is Monday, 3/30)
For this project, students will select a planet, research it, and then create an alien that could live on that planet. All of their aliens will be traveling to Earth in the near future, so students will also be creating a "passport" full of important information about their alien/planet. Aside from our two in-class research days, this project will be completed entirely at home. This is a large project, so it is important that students work on it a little bit each night so that they are not crunched for time at the end!
If you choose to type your passport, remember that there is a template for you to use on our Google Classroom!
The rubric/instructions for this project can be on the right side of this page.
At the end of this project students will present their alien and passport to the class as well as share it with other students and parents. We will have a "Welcome to Earth" Party on Monday, March 30th from 2:15-3:00 in the cafeteria where you can come and meet all of our visiting aliens!
