This collection includes QuickTime, MPEG-1, and GIF animations and interactive images of Martian exploration and geology. These visualizations illustrate Mars' surface geology and historical and current water presence and display information from the Spirit, Opportunity, Pathfinder, and Sojourner rovers and landers. Many of the visualizations have long download times, but are well worth your patience. ... Full description.

This activity is about planetary climate. Once familiar with the factors that determine a planet's surface temperature, learners will use an interactive spreadsheet model of a planet's atmosphere to determine if greenhouse gases, luminosity of the source, the distance of the planet from the source and the albedo of the planet can be manipulated so that the average surface temperature on Mars or Venus ...

In this lesson students explore the idea of using probes to gain scientific information on both Mars and Earth. The students also attempt to determine the likely surface temperature at landing sites on Earth that are comparable to Pathfinder and Viking sites on Mars. This is the fifth in a series of interactive student lessons from the Martian Sun Times. Full description.

This lesson teaches basic astronomical concepts such as the astronomical meaning of the day, year, and seasons through choreographed bodily movements and positions that provide educational sensory experiences. Through a series of simple body movements, students gain insight into the relationship between time and astronomical motions of Earth (rotation about its axis, and orbit around the Sun), and ...

This activity focuses on the relationship between science of looking for life and the tools, on vehicles such as the Mars Rover, that make it possible. Learners will create their own models of a Mars rover. They determine what tools would be necessary to help them better understand Mars (and something about life on Mars/its habitability). Then they work in teams to complete a design challenge where ... Full description.
