Design a Planet

Design Your Own Planet

This activity involves the pupils designing and describing their own planet. Pupils should be encouraged to consider things like what elements the planet will contain, the temperature, the size, whether it has moons, whether it will be habitable, and if so, what life might have evolved to live there?

Ask the pupils to create a fact-file style poster, with pictures as well as written details of their planet.

As an extension the pupils could then use their planets as the location for a short story.
