MARS WEATHER (Mini-Booklet)

Yes! Mars has weather. Create a Mini-Booklet about the weather on Mars. You will make this in class together on Friday but if you lose it/weren’t here on Friday…

  • Take two pieces of paper the same size, and fold them in half.
  • Take one piece of paper and cut a slit along the fold that FINISHES about 2 cm away from the edges.
  • On the other piece make two slits at either end of the fold (about 2 cm).
  • Roll this piece of paper and pass through the slit of the other piece and straighten out so that it fits together as an eight-page booklet.

Find out everything you can about the Weather on Mars, including:

  • Wind
  • Dust storms
  • Clouds
  • Frost and snow
