Learners will use samples of crustal material to sort, classify, and make observations about an unknown planet. From their observations, students will interpret the geologic history of their mystery planet and make inferences about past life or the... (View More)

Learners will use balloons to construct a scale model of the Earth, Earth's Moon and Mars in relation to each other. They will use this model to predict distances and reflect on how scientists use models to construct explanations through the... (View More)

Learners will create a model of the solar system using colored beads and string. In addition, learners will compare planetary sizes using common types of fruits and seeds(either actual fruits or the accompanying drawings of fruits). The lesson... (View More)

This is an activity about graph interpretation. Learners will compare, interpret, and discuss four graphs of the speed, temperature, magnetic field strength, and density of a coronal mass ejection as it swept past Earth in 1997. This is the third... (View More)

This is an activity about the solar activity cycle. Learners will construct a graph to identify a pattern of the number of observed sunspots and the number of coronal mass ejections emitted by the Sun over a fifteen year time span. A graphing... (View More)

This legacy poster features the Galileo missions and tours of Jupiter and Europa in the 1990s. Learners can read informational text about the missions and discoveries or complete the Europa Geology Jigsaw Puzzle to learn about creating a geologic... (View More)

In this inquiry investigation, students learn that while the Sun appears to move around the Earth, in fact it is the Earth spinning around on its axis while the Sun remains stationary. Materials suggested for this activity include an easel or wipe... (View More)

In this activity, learners will determine the factors affecting the appearance of impact craters and ejecta on the Moon. Extensions are listed. This activity is in Unit 2 of the Exploring the Moon teachers guide, which is designed for use... (View More)

In this activity, learners will construct a model of a lunar roving vehicle. This activity is in Unit 2 of the Exploring the Moon teachers guide, which is designed for use especially, but not exclusively, with the Lunar Sample Disk program.

This is an activity about collecting, describing and classifying terrestrial and lunar rocks. Learners will collect and describe rocks of varying texture, color and shapes. Descriptors will include color, presence or absence of grains and grain... (View More)
