Does Mars Show Evidence of Plate Tectonics?

Procedure:

  1. Work in groups of 1, 2, or 3 students. For this project, you may self-select groups. Post your group members on the board.
  2. Use your plate tectonics outline for this project. Maps and geology books are also available. You will sign up for computer time in the class room and library. Students without Internet access at home will have priority for computer time.
  3. Collaborate to select a Martian site. Record the coordinates and have the site approved by your teacher.
  4. Assign specific research to each member of your team.
  5. Make a two-column table. Record the name of the Martian feature you are investigating and the evidence of plate tectonics the feature shows.
  6. Your group should combine the tables, evaluate the accuracy of each member's work.
  7. Write a rough draft of your group's summary.
  8. It would be very helpful to refer to the following lessons: Comparing Earth and Mars and Similarities between Earth and Mars.
  9. Enter your information into the forms below. (Please make sure you have everything spelled correctly!!!)
  10. If you wish to change information in the tables, click on "reset". If your information is correct, click on "submit".
