      SCIENCE
      Mission to Mars – Edible Solar System
      http://www.athena.cornell.edu/educators/lp_01.html
      This is an activity designed by Jean Settle of St. Louis, Missouri.
      Ms. Settle is a faculty member of the Challenger Center for Space
      Science Education. The activity is designed for primary grades,
      particularly K-3, for development of Spatial Intelligence. The Solar
      System that is constructed shows gives very general information about
      the order in which the planets occur, and a few clues about their
      basic color and size characteristics. The constructed Solar System is
      not to scale, neither in terms of distance from the Sun or diameter
      of each planet.

      This is a classic exercise for visualizing just how BIG our Solar
      System really is. Both the relative size and spacing of the planets
      are demonstrated in this outdoor exercise, using a mere peppercorn to
      represent the size of the Earth

      Edible Mars Rover
      http://athena.cornell.edu/educators/lp_04.html
      Adapted from Jean Settle's "Edible Rockets". In 1996 two spacecraft,
      Mars Global Surveyor and Mars Pathfinder, were launched to Mars.
      These spacecraft are kicking off a decade long exploration of the Red
      Planet. Students can become familiar with the missions and the type
      of equipment on board each spacecraft through this activity.
