“The Truth Is Out There!” – Reports into UFOs

Posted by eastwoldblog on March 15, 2010

This week in Literacy we will be finding out more about UFOs before preparing a report on the topic.

Scenario:

The Government Department for Schools, Children and Families (DSCF) wants to know if they should include a section on UFOs in the science curriculum –to be taught in schools.

They want a report on UFOs to help them decide.

The report should be as unbiased as possible.

It should seek to answer the following questions:

1. Are there such things as flying objects which are not of earthly origin – i.e. cannot be explained by our science or geography as we know it?

2. How good is the evidence? What are the most compelling bits of evidence?

3. Is there a good case for teaching this topic in schools?

Remember that you have 2 days in class and any homework time that you want to use (UFO Research is your Homework this week) to research information for the topic.

There are links in the “UFO” category on the right (some might not work in school).

REMEMBER: This should be an unbiased report! No matter what you believe, you must look at both sides of the arguement!

Good luck with the research and think about how you can help others, if you find a really useful website that you think other people could use – paste the URL into a comment and I’ll it to the link list.
