Space- Lesson 5- Using ANALOGY to understand what it is like to work in Outer Space

November2

Goal:

To use an analogy to explain what working in space is like

APK:

Discuss the BTN set as homework:

Mars Experiment: 08/09/2015, Behind the News

What would you like about this experience? What wouldn’t you lik?

Today our aim is to encourage a new generation of space explorers.

We will try to help kids understand what it is like by creating an ANALOGY

Open the Thinking Skills sheet you have downloaded and look at the steps for:

 Analogythe relationship or pattern between a known and unknown situation- By seeing similarities to something familiar it helps us better understand something that is unfamiliar

  1. Tell about a topic that is hard to understand-what would working in space be like
  2. Explain a story or something you already know about that seems like the new topic-                                                                    an analogy isn’t like a simile-where something has 1 characteristic in common, or like a comparison, where you look at things that have a lot that’s the same- An analogy compares a familiar thing that has lots of comparable aspects to an unfamiliar thing, so that you can understand the unfamiliar better brainstorm possibilities- what is something familiar to us kids that has a lot in common with working in space?
  3. Tell how each part of what you know can explain the new topic- Use websites and videos to help you understand how working in space can be compared to our analogy.

New Information:

Select from the following weblinks and the videos in student shared drive to continue your investigation (remember to skim an scan to find relevant info):

 

What’s working on the International Space Station (The ISS) Like?

Questions about working on the ISS

Practicing For Mars Travel

 Space Effects BTN

Application:

Fill in the grid with researched responses- how is working in space like our analogy?

4.  Tell what you know now (new idea) or could do with the information (new item)– design a poster encouraging people to join NASA’s space program and work on a space station using what you’ve learned. Make sure you are helping kids understand by comparing the experience with the analogy.
