Grade Levels: K-3

These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Mars topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Life on Other Planets

Scientists have not found life on other planets yet, but the universe is a big place! Have your child write a short story about finding life on a distant planet. What is the planet like? What is the life form like? Encourage him or her to be creative and draw illustrations that go with his or her story.

Martian Weather Report

Have your child use the internet to find out more about the weather on Mars. Then have him or her create a weather report about the planet. Is it hot? Cold? Is it windy? Your child can create a report or deliver the information as a weather forecaster.
