Science 9 – Students were asked to create a small project.  Each group was given an object to research. They had to find a bit of information about the object, and then describe what the Earth would look like if a person were on the object looking at us right now. So if a person was in the Andromeda Galaxy which is 4 million light years away, they would see the Earth as it was 4 million years ago. It was a great activity to learn about different types of objects in space and learn about distances in the universe.  This activity was taken from the Perimeter Institutes teacher resources.
