How Big Are the Volcanoes on Mars? (title provided or enhanced by cataloger)
This interactive activity lets you superimpose familiar objects onto images of volcanoes on Mars (including Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in the solar system), so you can see just how large they are. The dropped objects include a school bus, stadium, Texas, Hawaii, and the contiguous US. Informative feedback makes the activity educational as well as fun.
