Activity Overview


In this exercise, students will use a T-Chart with description boxes to compare what they know of Earth to Ray Bradbury’s depiction of Venus in "All Summer in a Day".


On the left side of the chart, students should list attributes of Earth:

  • what it might look like on any given day in the students’ home town
  • what the view from the face of the Earth looking out into space might be
  • where things are located on Earth (terrestrial vs. subterranean)

On the right side of the chart, students should list attributes of the fictional portrayal of Venus:

  • what it might look like on any normal day (not including the two hour break in hurricanes)
  • the view from the face of Venus, and
  • where things are located on the colonized Venus.

Students should use quotes from the story to substantiate their answers.
