Reflection: Lesson Planning Mars One Close Read - Key Ideas and Details - Section 3: Close Read


This article does mention that colonists sent to Mars would need to reproduce to expand the colony.  We skimmed this part and did not go into detail or make a big deal out of it.  We have talked about reproduction of mammals in our science unit and the students seemed to either not understand that section of the text, chose to ignore it, or understood because of the science unit on mammals.  I was sure not going to bring it up for discussion, but the students didn't either.  (Which I was grateful for.)
