A holiday out of this world! (An out of this world vacation!)
1. Unit 10 class 9 Project
Imagine you are working for a space tourism company. Your company plans to embark on a new trip to one of the planets in our solar system. Look back at A CLOSER LOOK 1, activity 4 and choose a planet. Design a presentation to promote this trip. Present your tour for 5-7 minutes in front of the class. How many customers want to join your tour?
Discuss with your group:
– What makes this planet such an attractive tourist destination?
– What was the highlight of the tour? What will the customer experience?
– How do they prepare for the trip? (What training do they have to do? What should they pack?)
– How much does the tour cost?
– How eco-friendly is the tour?
– use effective advertising language
– summarize ideas in bullet points
– includes attractive visuals like images, colors, fonts and letter sizes, etc.
(You can get inspiration from these posters created by NASA.)
