The Cassini Robot

Students examine their prior notions of robots and then consider the characteristics and capabilities of a robot like the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft that would be sent into space to explore another planet. They compare robotic functions to human body functions. Pupils design, build, diagram, and explain their own models of robots for space exploration in the Saturn system.

I love the ideas found through Lesson Planet, especially for writing techniques. My year-end planning for the coming year will definitely be more enjoyable!
