World Builders -- Session Eleven
Sharing Our Worlds
Here They Are!
We did it! Our worlds are finished,
(with some last minute panic) but done! Our worlds are ready for
visitors -- or for the evolution of intelligent creatures. What
will the future hold? What features remain to be discovered? We
have only had ten weeks to explore: if we could stay longer, or
land here again, we might find more life forms and interesting
We have learned a lot! Building
planets is an enjoyable way to learn about the sciences. We have
so many questions! Maybe no one will ever know the answers to
some of them, but they are fun to think about.
Graduating World Builders, you are part of
an elite group now! Come back and visit, share ideas with the
classes that come after you! Remember that a little bit of inventing
is fun -- if you are teaching, give your students a chance to
invent a special plant for Valentine's Day, or to grow an alien
Christmas tree, or to figure out how aliens might celebrate Halloween-like
festivals! How would you make music if you lived under water?
What senses would you have if your planet were dark to human eyes?
Would you think about time if you never saw the sun? Keep asking
the questions -- and enjoy!
Information on Alien Life Forms
These are some web sites or notes or sketches
about imaginary alien life forms. Enjoy! Visitors, you are invited
to contribute your ideas here, too.
