Short Description: Students listen to a narrative "told" by the Huygens probe. Visualization and drawing are used as motivators to enhance comprehension and to get students thinking about Titan and what we might find there. Next, they read an article about Titan and the Huygens probe and write a summary. This series introduces science into a reading and writing curriculum.
