That activity that I would focus on in the classroom from this module would be the design a martian activity. I think that it would be a very creative and engaging activity that would allow for lots of interesting conversations between the children. To start off I would get the children to think pair share about what they think a martian would look like. I would get a few pairs to share their ideas, each child would then get an A4 sheet of paper where they could turn their ideas into drawings. Once the children had created their drawings I would allow them to choose from a variety of art materials to create a 3D version of their martian. They could use clay, playdough, cardboard etc. Once complete each child would get the chance to showcase their martian to the class and discuss their different features.
