Mapping the Surface of a Planet is intended to fit within your existing Earth science curriculum, rather than in addition to it. This Teacher Guide presents tips that you can use to make Mapping the Surface an engaging educational experience for your students. The background information presented on pages 1-6 is intended to be given to each student or student team. The three activities (one using data from each instrument on board Mars Global Surveyor) are best set up as stations through which student teams can rotate, but can also be used as a whole class activity. Each team should have a printed copy of all three activity sheets, but the image itself can be placed at the appropriate station. Of course, if resources permit, each team can be given a complete set of images. If students do have their own copies, it is suggested that you allow the students to circle features they have found in each image, writing notes about their observations directly on the image. Vocabulary words are printed in bold text throughout the background material. Definitions can and should be obtained from the context, rather than presented as simply a list of words. In this way the students not only learn the targeted vocabulary, they are also given the opportunity to practice comprehension skills.
