Take control of a planet and help meet the demands of fickle aliens who can’t seem to make up their minds about what conditions they want on their home world. Manipulate a planet’s core attributes, including atmosphere, tilt, rotation, and lunar cycles, to learn how these factors change temperature, time, and seasons. Students learn how the earth-sun-moon system affects the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons, and how gravity affects motions of planets and other objects within galaxies and the solar system. Playable on Android tablets 4.2 or newer with quad-core processors and 2 GB RAM.
Aligned to middle school science standards including Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core State Standards, and Benchmarks for Science Literacy. Teacher’s guide includes discussion activities, workshops, labs, and assessments. Students follow along with the included student guide, which allows for seamless communication between the lessons and the game play.
