-On Friday, we are going to write an innovated version of the Man on the Moon. That means we are going to write the story, but change it a little. The things that we are going to change are the character and the setting (place). Our story is going to be called: Man on Mars (A Day in the Life of Billy). That's right! We are going to write about Billy!

-Today, we need to plan what jobs Billy might do on Mars, so we know what we are going to write in our story on Friday.

-You can look at the ideas for jobs below if you are stuck.

-Choose four jobs that Billy will do in your story. Draw a picture for each one and write a sentence to explain what Billy does.
