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 the discovery of water ice on Mars. Learners will record and graph temperature data and use a model of an ice-rich and ice-free surface on Mars to examine how ice content in the martian soil would impact the temperature of a... (View More)

This is a lesson about the search for life on Mars. Learners will participate in three activities. In the first activity (Imaginary Martians) learners will compare a fictional organism with what they know about life on Mars today. In the second... (View More)

This is a brief activity about the mathematics of Mars. By playing this matching card game, learners will gain knowledge of Mars mathematical facts and vocabulary. Note: Find the latest information and updates on Mars missions at the NASA Mars... (View More)

This is a lesson about elemental abundance in solar wind. Learners will count elements extracted from a simulated sample and learn how the extraction of atoms from the Genesis samples help scientists have a better understanding of the abundances of... (View More)

Audience: High school

In this hands-on experiment, students will investigate the basic principle of photosynthesis and learn how light intensity diminishes as a function of distance from the light source. Questions help learners connect these two ideas to determine if... (View More)

Working in teams of two, learners will observe the characteristics of and classify crustal material samples. They will then infer causes for the characteristics of the different samples and the history of the "mystery" planet they originate from.... (View More)

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 from the collection, Mars Activities.... (View More)

This activity is about the use of remote sensing in planetary exploration. Learners will find out how human curiosity in planetary exploration results in science questions, engineering solutions, and teamwork. This activity demonstrates how... (View More)
