A couple of weeks ago I published an all about Mars post that included a video from SciShowKids titled Meet the Mars Rovers! SciShow Kids has published a follow-up to that video. The follow-up is titled How to Design a Mars Rover!
How to Design a Mars Rover! explains to elementary school students how scientists and engineers work together to design and improve Mars rovers.
After watching the video about how a Mars rover is designed, have your students head to the Mars Rovers page on NASA’s Space Place website. On that page they can click on cards about each of five Mars rovers to learn about what each one was called, what it did, and what was learned from the work the rover did on Mars.
