Hi all.

We are the school that Ken is referrring to in his last post.  We have Mars
Day program which replaced our science fair.  The seventh graders conduct
different Martian projects in science class.  One pair of students might be
investigating the volcanoes on Mars while another is building a robot to
explore Mars.   In english class they are writing martian newspapers and in
social studies they are conducting a town meeting.  If you would come to the
town meeting, you would see "Greens" arguing for more terraforming and "Reds"
arguing for less.  All of these activities come together on Mars Day.
 Students begin the day by presenting  their projects to each other and our
lower school kids.  Later in the day they conduct a town meeting and we end
the day with War Of The Worlds.

If you would like more information please post,  we are happy to share with
other educators!!
