In this activity, students approach studying the surface of Mars in the same way as photogeologists. After drawing a simple features map, they will have the tools to state the general geologic history of a part of Mars' surface. They focus on the evidence showing river channels that once flowed and caused erosion. The evidence for water and volcanoes on Mars points to possible environments where life ... Full description.

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 youngest to oldest based on the evidence. Learners will discover that the oldest surface has the most craters, while also discussing what events could make ... Full description.
