CREATING A CONSTITUTION

The Space Colony

Hit ELA and social studies standards as students role-play a group of space colonists who create a settlement on another planet. Students strengthen literacy skills as they create characters who use geography and science to make the planet fit for daily life.

Students develop spatial thinking skills as they navigate their setting and create maps of their space settlement. When confronted with a crisis within their colony, students must rally together to write a new constitution in the unit's critical incident, which is designed to expand their knowledge of government.
