This then allows the students to come up with creative solutions to make the planet they are researching habitable and then present those creative solutions in a persuasive manner through their marketing materials. This project could have a place in both HS and MS based on the standards alignment. Standards: Middle School Alignment MS-ESS1. MS-ESS1-3.
