This site from SERC presents Just-in-Time Teaching (JiTT) warm up questions about life on the Moon and Mars. The questions promote the examination of Archaea, evidence of life on Mars and protolife on the Moon, as well as what it would mean to scientists and society if life were found on Mars or the Moon.

This interactive activity lets you explore the Valles Marineris canyon (the size of the US) and a piece of it called the Candor Chasm. Using a 3D model of Mars' surface created using data from orbiting spacecraft, you can examine the surface from a distance, changing lighting to enhance features, and fly over the surface, looking for markers hidden in the terrain. Informative feedback makes the exercise ... Full description.

Students will learn that Mars, and each planet in the solar system, is unique due to the materials from which it is made and the processes that shaped it. Images and information from Mars exploration voyages, including the Viking Mission in 1975, the Pathfinder Landing in 1997, the Mars Global Surveyor project, the Mars Odyssey and Mars Express spacecrafts, the Mars Exploration Rovers, and the Reconnaissance ...

This site demonstrates how, with the use of orbital mechanics, a space mission to Mars can be planned. Using no more than algebra, Kepler's laws and the formula for the energy of an object in a Kepler orbit, it derives the time for an optimal flight to Mars, the timing of the flight, the thrust needed to enter the orbit and to leave it upon arrival, and details of the flight back to Earth, including ...

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, and develope investigable questions. Students will study images taken by NASA's Mars Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) camera orbiting Mars. Students ... Full description.
