This activity is about crater formation in the solar system. Through a simulation using mud and other materials, learners will observe crater formation and identify the distinctive features of impact sites. A diagram with crater features labeled is... (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)

This is an activity about the planet Mars. Learners will create cratered surface models illustrating different lengths of time. Then, they will compare their models with three different surface images of Mars, placing these images in order from... (View More)

This is an activity about observation. Learners will make a 3-dimensional model of a mock planetary surface inside a box, and then place a lid on top. They will then introduce a simple probe, such as a pencil or stick, at various points through... (View More)
