Biotic and Abiotic Factors and Solar System Google Expeditions AR and VR lesson

What makes something living? If we needed to leave Earth where could we move to in our solar system that could actually sustain life? In this lesson students will discuss what makes something living. They will also explore the solar system to review what they know so they can make an educated decision on where they could move based off of the factors of W.A.G.O.N. The factors of W.A.G.O.N. include having water, an atmosphere, in the Goldilocks Zone, oxygen present, and the correct nutrients available (CHOPNS).
