PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson is compatible with the Second Grade Next Generation Science Standards* 2-ESS1-1 and 2-ESS1-2 which state that the student should “[u]se information from several sources to provide evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly” and “[d]evelop a model to represent the shapes and kinds of land and bodies of water in an area.”

This lesson teaches students about geology through a comparison of the geologic events and formations on Earth with those on Mars. The students will learn about how geologic formations, such as glaciers, rivers, volcanoes, and earthquakes change the landscape of both Earth and Mars. They will determine how quickly these events occur and learn that some changes happen immediately while others occur slowly over thousands or millions of years.

The lesson is research based, using suggested Internet sites to answer geologic questions. Students will develop and understanding of what it means to find valid scientific information online and be able to answer geologic questions using a variety of sources.
