This is an activity about the Mars Pathfinder mission. Learners will use household materials to build a model of the lander, parachute and air bags in order to replicate the entry, descent and landing of the payload. Instructions, materials list and... (View More)

This activity is about the Mars Pathfinder spacecraft. Using cardboard and other materials, learners will create a two dimensional model of the spacecraft. A diagram with approximate measures of each component is provided.

This is a kinesthetic activity about the rotation of the Moon. Learners act out the rotation and revolution motions of Moon around the Earth to illustrate that the Moon rotates once in the same amount of time as it orbits the Earth once, called... (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 a lesson about volcanic activity. Learners will make volcanic eruptions using baking soda and vinegar, and then use colored play dough to make a record of the flow patterns. Then, groups of learners exchange their volcanoes so they can make... (View More)

This is an activity about understanding how the Earth’s axial tilt changes the angle at which sunlight hits the Earth, contributing to the variations in temperature throughout the seasons. Learners will create a sun angle analyzer in order to see... (View More)
