Invite students to become members of the "SETI Academy" and explore Earth's history for clues to the possible existence of life beyond our solar system. The three books in the Planet Project (of the Life in the Universe series) can be used individually or together to create a comprehensive, thematic, scientific exploration for students. After exploring the evolution of our solar system, students apply that information to simulate the possible evolution of a planetary system beyond our own. Classroom kit includes a book, a videotape, and a full-color poster. Through a variety of science activities, students explore the evolution of life on Earth and search for clues to the possible evolution of life on an unknown planet beyond our solar system. Synthesizing what they learn, students "create" life-forms that could exist on that distant planet. Classroom kit includes a book, a videotape, and a full-color poster. Students examine concepts of intelligence, culture, technology, and communication. Using their new knowledge, they simulate a complex culture for an intelligent organism that could exist on an unknown planet. Classroom kit includes a book, transparencies, and a full-color poster.
