Are We Ready for Mars?

1️⃣ Introduction
2️⃣ Round №1
Look through the materials provided to students for the lesson.
Spend 5-7 minutes talking about, explaining, asking questions and introducing materials (aka vocabulary) to students.
Make sure they now understand how to use it.

▶️ Spend more time on this part if necessary
▶️ You goal is to make students realize that they actually learned something today
How do you view space expansion? Is it something we should pursue more or less?
How does expanding to other planets change how we treat Earth?
Why do we look particularly at Mars as our next space adventure?
What infrastructure is needed to settle on Mars?
What kind of people volunteer for such mission? Under which circumstances would you agree to join it?
Earth is in its last days of existence. Our Mars colony can only take a limited amount of people. Who gets saved?
3️⃣ Round №2
4️⃣ Outroduction
Since it is hard to get back to Earth from Mars, people, who serve lifetime sentences should be sent to Mars to repay a debt to society.
We are not made to live on other planets, we should stop trying.
Before colonizing any other planets, we must take care of this one. Going to Mars is ridiculously expensive, this money is better used to fight climate change.
Colonizing space goes against some religions.
If Mars is ever colonized, who does it belong to (e.g. scientific community, union of countries, whoever gets first)? Why?
A human on Mars will inevitably contaminate the environment with their biological material. We are better off sending just robots.
Spend 5-7 minutes discussing the mistakes people made.
Give good and bad examples of how the vocabulary you discussed in the beginning was used during the lesson.
Visit breakout rooms and write down students’ mistakes
engage with the students as much as the situation requires
write down common mistakes
write down misuse of the vocabulary (materials) of the lesson
