Invent An Alien
Planet: Uranus Name: Anne Norman
The purpose of this project is to use expert knowledge of your planet to “invent” a life form that could
survive in the conditions of that world. All of the planets characteristics should be considered.
Each of the characteristics of the Alien must be compatible with the characteristics of the planet. Some
biological research of animals may be necessary. Compare animals on Earth that live in extreme
environments similar to an environment on your planet.

Why? There are many different species under water on Uranus. My alien’s digestive system can only

How does the alien deal with the temperatures? My alien prefers to be in warmer water.
Why? To deal with the temperature, my alien doesn’t go deep down to the bottom of the ocean.
How does the alien seal with the surface or lack thereof on the planet? The surface of Uranus, is the top
of the Ocean and my alien can breathe when they pop their head up.
Why? Because of the nose like the dog, my alien can breathe air in, but prefers the water.

Uranus there is no land.
