This is a lesson about planet sizes. Learners will demonstrate the size (volume) differences between Earth, Earth?s Moon, and Mars. An extension to estimate the distance between the Earth and the Moon, and the Earth and Mars, using the scale of the play dough planets' sizes is provided. Advance preparation of the play dough (recipie provided) is required. This is lesson 3 of 16 in the MarsBots learning ... Full description.

This activity is an interactive way to introduce students to the basics of soil science. Based on NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander, students will simulate what it is like to collect soil samples on another planet. By measuring for themselves many of the properties scientists use to characterize soil samples, students will be better prepared to interpret those properties as used in actual applications. The ...

This is an activity about planetary sizes and distances. Learners will construct a scale model of the Earth, Earth?s Moon and Mars in relation to each other using balloons. They will use this model to predict distances and reflect on how scientists use models to construct explanations through the scientific process. The lesson models scientific inquiry using the 5E instructional model and includes ... Full description.

Mars Landing is part of an online series of modules entitled Exploring the Environment. Emphasizing an integrated approach to environmental Earth Science education through problem-based learning, this module asks students to choose the most appropriate landing site on Mars by consulting low-resolution and high-resolution images. First, students must learn to enhance digital images in practice sessions ... Full description.

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 balloon activity will allow students the opportunity to construct a scale model of the Earth-Moon system, both in terms of planetary sizes and distances. In addition, students make a scale model of Mars, and discover how far one might have to travel to visit the planet. The activity is a good introduction to a unit on the solar system, to preassess student knowledge of planetary distances. Full description.

This resource explains how to calculate the velocity boost needed to inject a Mars spaceship into the transfer orbit, and the arrival velocity at the orbit of Mars. One will be able to tell if the spaceship will be overtaking the planet or be overtaken by it and what the velocity mismatch between ship and planet will be. Full description.
