A giant dust storm is raging on Mars! Today's issue of Thursday's Classroom includes 3rd-to-4th and 5th-to-8th grade-level news stories about the ongoing tempest. Students might also enjoy experimenting with an edible Mars dust storm as they color original martian art by Duane Hilton.
Also check out our recent 6th-to-12th grade lesson plans based on the Science@NASA stories "Sizzling Comets Circle a Dying Star" (July 11, 2001) and "Morning Coffee and Planets" (July 10). They're all at http://www.thursdaysclassroom.com/.
