Here are two of our favorites:

Mars Education Programs

You can participate in four major programs:
Imagine Mars for K-4 and 5-8.  Mars Student Imaging Project for 5-8 and 9-12. Mars Robotics Education for 5-8 and 9-12. Mars Educator Workshop for K-4, 5-8 and 9-12.

Imagine Mars teaches students science through the arts, letters, and humanities.

The Mars Student Imaging Project allows students to use a camera on the Odyssey orbiter to take their own image of the red planet and analyze it using the scientific method.

Mars Robotics Education is a program in development that aligns with technology-education standards.

Mars Educator Workshops offer professional development opportunities for teachers.

For all Mars lesson plans, please visit the Mars Exploration Program's Classroom section, where there are lessons, resources and programs about Mars.
