Thanks for the info Jan.  this is good timing.  I am just starting a 
session on terretrial and extra-terrestrial weather, so Mars and the 
HST are cooperating!  Great pictures, too.
    I was just in Boston for a TERC/LabNet meeting (great BBS for math 
and science teachers, incidentally--http://labnet.terc.edu/labnet/ )  
While I was there, I spoke to Chris Randall, who is instrumental in 
making the great canyons and floods units about Mars.  They are AT THE 
PRINTERS and will be shipped within the month.  Anyone intersted in 
getting copies need to contact Chieck Diarra from NASA/JPL.  He put on 
the seminar we attended at NASA this summer and is handling the TERC 
Mars supplies.  THis is the e-mail address I have for him off the JPL 
Mars Exploration page   cheick.m.diarra@jpl.nasa.gov
They even have a cool 3-d model of the Valle Marineris which I covet!  
I'm not sure how much it will cost, but doesn't hurt to ask!  jkc
