l. ACTIVATE problem solving strategies by having kids solve a problem, similar to the What If? questions. For example: pretend that the gravity for each of the planets is reversed. Now, figure out what the impact of this change might bring to our solar system as we know it now.
2. IGNITE students' imaginations and creativity by getting kids to create a collage of natural satellite images, either using public domain images found online, using their own photos, or a combination of both (collage could be either digital or physical). If kids enjoy photo editing software, then have them create their own digital collage using the software.
3. FOSTER and SUPPORT innovation by getting kids to engineer a model for one the word clues, or one of their own space constructions. Remember to include: materials used; procedure; problems and solutions encountered; reflections of the process, the model and any other thoughts they had during the construction; labels and next steps.
4. ACTIVATE problem solving strategies by encouraging kids to create puzzles of all types: crosswords, scrambled letters, matching puzzles, or word search puzzles using blank templates (see links below).
