Weather on Mars

Mars Diary

Activity 3.1

This activity tackles the complex topic of weather on Mars in a visual and creative way. Students will create their own infographic (or visual interpretation) of Mars weather data. They will think about what weather is and how is occurs. They will learn that only planets with atmospheres have weather. Students will also have to think about how we forecast the weather on Earth and what sort of information is made available to allow humans to plan their activities.
