Our Alien Project was a perfect fit for us and 5/6CS. We were learning how reports are written, they were learning about Space and we both love using technology in the classroom. So, the Alien Project was born!
We wrote a report for a fictional alien and emailed it to 5/6CS in Tasmania. We also drew our alien using Word. However, we kept these a secret until 5/6CS had read our reports and recreated the alien using our description. You can read more about our Alien Project HERE
Students in 5/6CS recreated our original aliens from the description in our reports. Check out the results in the slideshow below.
5/6CS also gave us valuable feedback on our report writing skills. We sent them a checklist to use about the structure, language and features of our reports. They filled them in and posted them back to us.
We really enjoyed creating our aliens, writing our reports, sharing them with 5/6CS and reading their feedback.
