LESSON IN DETAIL
  • MATERIALS
  • Student Guide (1 per student)
  • Computer with projector, or overhead with
    transparency
  • Computers (extension)
  • Optional
  • 1 clear pitcher with liquid water and water ice
  • 1 thermometer

15
OBJECTIVES
  • Compare maps of Mars showing different types
    of data to characterize the types of ice at the
    polar regions of Mars
  • during different seasons.
  • Data
  • Visible albedo
  • Surface temperature
  • Elemental composition

16
ICE PROPERTIES
BACKGROUND READING

EXTENSION ACTIVITY
Remote Sensing Ices on Mars
Objectives Students explore an online
simulator to learn more about how gamma rays that
are produced at the surface of Mars are used to
determine the composition of the surface.
