The hands-on activities in this Educator Resource Guide lay the conceptual groundwork for understanding the field of astrobiology. What is Life? What does Life need to live? What makes a world habitable? What can Life tolerate? Is there Life on other worlds? All five fundamental questions are addressed with complete activities, each including background reading, recommended procedure, activity guide, questions for reflection, blackline masters, and a math extension.
