Quest for Life in Space
a Problem Based Learning Project using Information Literacy

Created for students in 6th grade and up,
by Judy H. Carter, District LMT, Corning Union Elementary School District, Corning, California
Using authentic correspondence "specialists" take part in a problem-based quest to seek life in not only our Solar System but beyond into Deep Space.  An indepth study of our Solar System will be conducted to seek answers to the questions posed in this project.  Knowing what causes life to succeed in different environments will be one of the first challenges.  Seeking forms of life and environments in our own world and Solar System will give background to further revelations of whether man or robot will find life among the stars.  Presentations to the World Life Studies Federation will be the culminating activity.
