This module from the Mars Exploration Curriculum revolves around the formation of Valles Marineris. Students investigate the formation of Mars' 3,000 mile-long rift valley. After investigating how a planet's surface can be altered and analyzing data and images from NASA's missions to Mars, students develop hypotheses to explain the rift valley's formation and amass evidence to support their ideas.

This map of Mars permits users to zoom and pan across the planet's surface. One can select three views, including a shaded relief map, photographic mosaic (visible spectrum), or an infrared mosaic. The map is searchable by regions, spacecraft landing sites, feature types (mountains, dunes, etc.), or by keyword. More than 100 features are marked with "pushpins" and pop-up windows that provide information ... Full description.

This module from the Mars Exploration Curriculum revolves around the question of whether there is water on Mars. By experimenting with water as it changes state and investigating some effects of air pressure on water's boiling temperature, students not only learn core ideas in physical science but can deduce the water situation on Mars by applying those concepts. They use evidence from their work ... Full description.

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.
