Students send postcards from space to show their knowledge of other planets.
Students choose a planet to visit and research what they may encounter on their way to the planet. Find out about the planet's atmosphere and terrain, and what it would be like to be there. Calculate how long they would be away on their journey to visit their planet. How would they feel about being gone so long and so far away?
Students create a postcard describing what it's like to travel through space and see the planet they chose. Draw a line down the middle of white construction paper with Crayola® Metallic Colored Pencils to separate the message side from the address. Students write a message detailing their observations and feelings in colored pencils to the left of the line. Address the postcard on the right side. Design a solar system postage stamp in the upper right corner.
On the other side of the postcard, students use Crayola Metallic Crayons to draw a vivid scene they might see while traveling through space. One way to make a circular planet is to peel the wrapper from a crayon, then lay it flat on the paper. Grasp the crayon in the center and rotate it to create a fill-in circle. Add clouds and rings to make the planet look realistic. Fill in areas of the image with color to represent mountains, craters, and canyons.
Use Crayola Scissors to cut a space vehicle from cardboard. Add twinkling, colorful designs with Crayola Markers, Metallic FX Crayons, and Crayola Washable Glitter Glue. Attach it to the planet image with Crayola School Glue. Add streaks of smoke and fire from the base of the spacecraft with glitter glue.
Create an educational poster about the historical women of the U.S. space program called The Mercury 13.
