Mars-Rover-Logo-125Capture the excitement of Curiosity, the new Mars rover, in your classroom. Learn how to engage your students with a new 15 lesson plan Mars science curriculum. The Mars Rover curriculum uses a set of standards-aligned, inquiry based 5E lesson plans. Each Lesson investigates an Essential Question and uses a Science Notebook approach to Evaluation, contains a strong reading/language arts component and includes hyperlinks to the latest NASA results from Mars. Students research Mars and pick their own research question to investigate. They will use simple objects to build a model Rover designed to address their question. Students must create project teams, log books of their research and project design, and an interactive presentation of their work. Educators will earn 6 CEU credits for attending this all-day workshop.
