MARS STUDENT IMAGING PROJECT ASU MARS EDUCATION PROGRAM MARS STUDENT IMAGING PROJECT (MSIP) Suggested 3-Week Archived Schedule This schedule is intended to provide a set of activities to be implemented in your classroom as a three-week MSIP archived format. Each meeting is intended to fit a classroom period of about 45 minutes. This schedule can also be used as a ‘primer’ for your students to put together a formal proposal and project for use of the THEMIS camera. Here is an overview of each meeting: Week 1: Meetings 1 - 5 MEETING 1: Earth / Mars Comparisons and an Introduction to MSIP and THEMIS Images MEETINGS 2 and 3: Mars Uncovered MEETINGS 4: Mars Image Analysis Activity MEETING 5: Question Mars Activity Week 2: Meeting 6 – 10 MEETING 6: Question Mars Activity (continued) MEETING 7: Question Mars – Refining Your Experiment and Data Collection Methods MEETING 8: Data Analysis Practice MEETINGS 9 and 10: Proposal Outline Week 3: Meetings 11 - 15 MEETINGS 11 – 12: Gathering Additional Data MEETINGS 13: Graphing and Data Analysis MEETINGS 14: Drawing Conclusions MEETINGS 15: Writing up your Final Conclusions RESOURCES THAT CORRESPOND TO EACH MEETING ARE AVAILABLE AT http://marsed.asu.edu/upload/MSIP_3WeekArchivedResources This includes the MSIP ARCHIVED STUDENT MANUAL. (This manual is a compilation of all the materials and activities. If possible, it is recommended that each student have their own manual.)MARS STUDENT IMAGING PROJECT ASU MARS EDUCATION PROGRAM MEETING 1: EARTH / MARS COMPARISONS AND AN INTRODUCTION TO MSIP AND THEMIS IMAGES Having your students become familiar with similarities and differences between geologic features found on both Earth and Mars can allow them to begin thinking about what may be interesting for them to research. 1. Show MSIP Intro Video: A video link to this presentation is available at http://breeze2.is.asu.edu/p93588777/ (Note for Cassie: I think I may want to do a taping of this presentation as it will apply to the MSIP Archived groups. A new link will be provided before the fall of 2007 – the content will not change, just the whole idea of doing an archived format of MSIP will be better included and explained.) 2. Have students follow along and take notes using the Earth/Mars comparison outline. Homework Recommendation: Assign Chapter 1 (pp. 13-18) as reading from the MSIP Resource Manual. (Students can read other parts of the Resource Manual, but Chapter 1 is the highly recommended. This would provide students with additional background information allowing them to potentially narrow down their interest in a particular topic. The MSIP Resource Manual is available at ¾ http://msip.asu.edu/pages/pdfs/MSIPResourceManualv200.pdf OR ¾ http://marsed.asu.edu/upload/MSIP_3WeekArchivedResources (Look for Meeting 1 folder) MEETINGS 2 AND 3: MARS UNCOVERED: Reveling the Geologic History Through Mapping This activity will guide students through an inquiry-based and critical thinking approach of studying the surface of Mars in a similar way scientists do. This lesson will teach students to create a geologic feature map of a planetary surface and use relative age dating techniques to analyze the information and interpret the geologic history of that region. You will find the Teacher Guide, Student Guide and three possible images to map at the following link: ¾ http://marsed.asu.edu/upload/MarsUncovered OR ¾ http://marsed.asu.edu/upload/MSIP_3WeekArchivedResources (Look for Meetings 2 and 3 folder) Students can simply follow the guide with the teacher leading necessary discussions as recommended in the Teacher Guide. If students are going to map one image, the Chryse Planitia image is recommended.MARS STUDENT IMAGING PROJECT ASU MARS EDUCATION PROGRAM MEETING 4: MARS IMAGE ANALYSIS ACTVITY This lesson allows students to use a hands-on approach to get familiar with THEMIS visible images. The lesson allows for students to identify features seen in images, make measurements and/or come up with the "story" of what happened to the area of Mars they are observing. (Lendable materials are available for this activity.) ¾ This activity is available at http://marsed.asu.edu/upload/MSIP_3WeekArchivedResources (Look for Meeting 4 folder. Folder includes lesson plan, Feature ID Charts and a video clip of how to incorporate this lesson into your classroom) The lesson can be implemented without asking the students to write down any information as they go through the activity. The activity provides experience with what can be seen/resolved in THEMIS images and is recommended to be conducted somewhat informally. The format recommended to facilitate this activity is to: Give students the following materials: • One THEMIS Visible image per group of 3-4 students • The accompanying context image • An “11 X 17” MOLA map • Feature ID Charts • Erasable markers 1. Have students locate the general area of where their THEMIS image is located on the MOLA map. 2. Have students label and identify features on their THEMIS visible image and the context image. They should use the Feature ID Charts for assistance in naming the features. 3. Think about the history of the area using the relative age dating techniques they learned in the Mars Uncovered activity (Relatives age dating of features in the image, classification of craters, what happened to make this area look the way it does today.) 4. Make measurements You may want to play the video clip to explain each part of the activity with the students. 5. After students have had a chance to label features and make measurements on their initial image, have them rotate from image to image adding additional information and observations to each image they observe. Students should not erase anyone else’s observations, but should add additional observations or measurements as they wish. Homework Recommendation: Assign the background reading (page 1 only) of the Question Mars Activity as reading.MARS STUDENT IMAGING PROJECT ASU MARS EDUCATION PROGRAM MEETINGS 5: QUESTION MARS ACTIVITY This activity is especially useful to help students create a research question that can be answered using THEMIS visible images of Mars. Students should have read page 1 of this activity as homework so you can discuss it during the first part of class. You will find the Teacher Guide, Student Guide,
