Join Snoopy as he celebrates the landing of NASA's rover Perseverance and its mission to find signs of ancient life on Mars.

With these easy-to-implement language arts and STEAM activities for classrooms and home-based learning, students will learn why scientists study Mars, what the rover is doing on Mars — gathering sediment, rock, samples, and images of the red planet, and how the term "perseverance" relates to their own lives.

Please visit the PROGRAM SITE for complete teaching kits for grades K-2 and 3-6, curricular alignment charts, images of Mars, rover landing trailer, 3D images of rovers, and more!
