You have been hired to promote tours to one of the planets (or moons) other than Earth. In this project your job is to design and produce a travel brochure that will attract tourists to the planet you have chosen. Then you will present the brochure to your classmates and try and convince them to go on your vacation package. Remember: You are trying to sell vacations and holiday tour packages to your planet. Make your brochure exciting and interesting! Find out information about your planet to sell your tours.

These activities should be related to the planets special characteristics. Use your imagination! For the tour you want a description of what they travelers need to bring to prepare themselves for the trip. What kind of clothing or equipment do they need to survive? What kinds of accommodation will you provide to protect your guests from the planets conditions? Use your imagination! Include any other bits of information that you think is interesting and would make people want to visit your planet. Remember: 1. Do not give details you do not understand.
