Title: Ice and Fire Planet

Teacher: Mrs. Christensen

Theme: The Extremes of Alien Life Forms

Materials and techniques: We used chalk pastels on canvas.

Did you enjoy this project? We enjoyed working on our idea and using the pastels.

About: We wanted to show the different extremes that planets might have. There might even be a planet that is really hot on the side facing the sun and ice on the other side because it didn’t rotate. We designed it with a rocket in the middle to show people out exploring different and new planets.

Title: Wolf

Teacher: Mrs. Christensen

Theme: The Extremes of Alien Life Forms

Materials and techniques: We used acrylic paints on canvas.

Did you enjoy this project? We enjoyed working on the project it was fun to come up with an idea and make it our own.

About: When we thought about the theme the extremes of alien life forms we thought about the extremes on our own planet Earth and how animals here needed to adapt. We chose to do the Wolf in front of the moon and a starry sky because that was showing outer space and the other places that might have different creatures and environments.

Title: The Black Death

Teacher: Mrs. Christensen

Theme: The Extremes of Alien Life Forms

Materials and techniques: We used chalk pastels to get the blended and colorful look of a gas planet.

Did you enjoy this project? We had a good time working on the project. It was fun because we got to be creative and try new ideas.

About: We wanted to explore the idea of if something could adapt to live on a gas planet. We thought that sharks can live and swim through water. What if one could adapt to live and swim in the atmosphere of a gas planet? We made a shark that could camouflage itself, and could have poisonous gas expelled through its gills.

Title: Chargledillion

Teacher: Mrs. Christensen

Theme: The Extremes of Alien Life Forms

Materials and techniques: We used chalk pastels on canvas.

Did you enjoy this project? We had a fun time thinking about different animals and the best way to combine them together.

About: We thought about different adaptations and abilities of animals and how they use them to survive. Since different planets would be hard to live on we chose to combine different animals and their abilities to help them survive on another planet. We combined a cheetah, an armadillo, a lion, and an eagle so that it could run fast, the armor could protect it, and it could bite hard, and fly.

Title: Golden Valley

Teacher: Mrs. Christensen

Theme: The Extremes of Alien Life Forms

Materials and techniques: We used chalk pastels on canvas.

Did you enjoy this project? We enjoyed coming up with ideas for the project and thought that other planets could have some very funny things on them.

About: We wanted to create a planet that might have some similar things to earth but other things that were different. There might be a different atmosphere or rocks that might be different colors so we chose to make it look more gold. We also used ideas from Earth animals to make an animal that would be able to live in a mountain valley.
