The Family Guide to Mars includes an innovative collection of puzzles, pictures, poetry, and projects, all designed to stimulate enjoyable co-learning experiences between kids aged 6-12 and the caring adults in their lives. The Guide is useful for science centers, planetariums, and after-school programs. It is also of interest to classroom teachers in helping to engage student interest at the start of standards-based lesson plans.

Classroom Activities      
These five activities are engaging ways to integrate the topic of Mars into your classroom. They (a) cover topics relevant to Mars and the rover missions, (b) work well as "stand-alone" activities that do not depend on one another, and (c) enhance topics often found in many science programs.

The Digital Library for Earth System Education is a free service that helps educators and learners at all levels find valuable, online resources for teaching and learning. DLESE is supported by the National Science Foundation and is being built by educators, students, and scientists. Find resources about Mars: general resources, canyons, craters, floods and water, life and colonization, rovers, time, distance, and relative sizes, and volcanoes.
