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 the siting and geology of the six Apollo lunar landings. Learners use latitude and longitude to identify potential landing sites and study the geology of lunar samples collected from those sites. This activity is in Unit 2... (View More)

This lithograph shows an image of Mars on the front, with informational text on the back about how the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has been used to study Mars weather. HST took this image on March 30, 1997, just as it was making a close pass to... (View More)

This is a lesson about the connection between meteorites and asteroids, focusing on remote-sensing techniques using light. Learners will make and record observations and measurements; analyze data and draw analogies; compare samples; measure and... (View More)

In this investigation students explore how resolution affects information content on remotely sensed images, relate remote sensor resolution (pixel size) to information content, and gain an understanding of the information content of different kinds... (View More)

Students examine a series of remotely-sensed images of the US, scaling from the continent to San Francisco, and distinguish the concepts of scale and resolution. At greater resolution, students are able to identify different land classes on the map,... (View More)
