Planet Real Estate

We've been reviewing the solar system for the past two weeks. Yesterday, I let the kids have a little fun with the information they've learned about each planet. I gave them each a poster board and told them to create a real estate poster for a chosen planet. On the poster, they were to draw the planet, then write convincing reasons for moving there. It was great to see what they came up with.








Patrick chose Jupiter. Here is a quote from his poster:

"Jupiter is awesome if you don't like water. You'll definitely like the size. Jupiter..an idea place to live."

Madison and Carter both chose Saturn.

I was going to do a space unit this year but have not gotten around to it yet. I should put something together to fill in these last few weeks and end with something fun!
I love the real estate idea!

What a fun idea! I tracked over from your comment on my hs blog (which won't show up in blogger!). Love this sales pitch: Jupiter is awesome if you don't like water.
