This is a lesson about geologic history. Learners will work together to create models of volcanic lava flows and analyze the layers that form on a planet's surface. They will sequence lava flows produced by multiple eruptions. Students will be asked... (View More)

This is a lesson about using evidence to construct sequences of geologic events. Learners will interpret real NASA science data to identify features on the surface of Mars, determine the surface history of the area, calculate the size of features,... (View More)

This is an activity about planetary sizes and distances. Learners will construct a scale model of the Earth, Earth’s Moon and Mars in relation to each other using balloons. They will use this model to predict distances and reflect on how... (View More)

This activity is about the remote operation of planetary rovers. Using remote control cars and other materials, learners will simulate the experience of trying to operate a planetary rover and working as a team to address challenges and meet a... (View More)

This activity is about Mars sample return. Learners will use candy bars, straws and other materials to simulate the extraction of a Martian core sample and how to derive observations about the history and make-up of Mars. This is activity 3 of 25... (View More)

Learners will become familiar with the vehicles of two Mars missions: Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Pathfinder and the rover Sojourner (note: the activity could be easily adapted to be based on more current Mars missions and spacecraft). They will... (View More)

This is a classroom bingo-style game about vocabulary and concepts related to Mars and Mars missions. A list of vocabulary words and their definitions is provided. Note: Find the latest information and updates on Mars missions at the NASA Mars... (View More)

This activity is about the use of spectral data to identify mineral composition on Mars. Working in teams, students will compare and contrast spectra to identify similarities between Earth minerals and those from Mars. A short list of suggested... (View More)
