The internet is full of online activities related to Mars. Visit my Mars Pinterest board for links to activities, online games, and even apps for phone or tablet.
Elemental Science offers a student workbook with printable narration pages with a picture to color as well as lines for students to use for writing information they learned or found interesting. I don’t require formal paragraphs at this stage.
You can use a blank sheet of paper and have your students draw a picture and/or write their narration on it.
Incorporate the Arts:
Listen to Gustav Holst’s “Mars” from his Planets Symphony. You can do this while students are completing their narration pages.
