WALT: Answer comprehension questions
















Did you know….

Early in 2019, a cotton seed was successfully germinated on the moon. However, it did not live very long because during the lunar night, which lasts for approximately 13.5 days, the temperature plummeted and it was too cold for the seedling to survive.

If humans were to ever colonise Mars, they would need to be able to grow crops in order to survive. However, the extreme cold, low atmospheric pressure and high radiation environment would mean that the plants would need to be grown in a heated transparent enclosure if they were to grow to maturity and provide crops.

Get Growing on Mars!!!!

Design and make a Martian ‘grow pod’.

Use recycled materials to create a place where a seed could germinate and grow in a place like Mars.

Think about the conditions that a seed needs to germinate and grow.

I can’t wait to see what you design and create!
