Mars:Exploring the Red Planet is an interactive program for grades 1-8 based on the award-winning book, CARS ON MARS. Students will learn about Mars while viewing stunning images of the planet, and learning to apply the CCSS Standard, "Integration of Knowledge and Ideas" while looking at scientific images in nonfiction texts.
1. I briefly introduce myself and my book.
2. I explain how space photography provides scientists with important information
3. We look at images of Mars. Students analyze the images through a guided process which includes specific questions I pose.
4. Students are presented with an image and asked to write a brief caption. Younger students may be asked to share their caption verbally rather than write it down.
5. I reverse the process and provide information I want to show in a picture and ask students to describe how this picture might look.
6. I answer questions.
The participant will
-learn how to look at space photography and discover scientific information in the image
-write a caption to accompany a scientific image
-imagine a picture that would help illustrate a scientific fact (a helpful researching skill)
-gain scientific information/content about Mars and the solar system
-discover the relationship between science and art
