Mars Exploration: Is There Water on Mars? An Educator's Guide with Activities for Physical and Earth and Space Science.
TERC, Cambridge, MA.
This educator's guide discusses whether there is water on the planet Mars. The activities, written for grades 9-12, concern physical, earth, and space sciences. By experimenting with water as it changes state and investigating some effects of air pressure, students not only learn core ideas in physical science but can also deduce the water situation on Mars by applying those concepts. Evidence is used from their work as well as data and images from NASA missions to Mars to take a position on whether there was ever water on Mars. (MVL)
