Dear discuss-lfm members, TAKE THE CHALLENGE! Due to an error in how CQ#3 was transcribed last week, it has been rewritten and reposted. Your kids have a second opportunity to answer it. CQ #3: DIFFERENCES AND SIMILARITIES -- CAN YOU NAME THEM?: Discount (ignore, forget about...) one feature that makes Earth unique among the planets (but maybe not the moons) of our solar system, and Earth and Mars are almost identical in a certain aspect. What do you have to take away from Earth? In what way are Earth and Mars then alike? Bonus question: Whatever do we mean when we say this feature may make Earth unique compared to the planets...but maybe not "the moons" of our solar system? Send your answers to email@example.com Please put CHALLENGE QUESTION in the subject. Answers will be accepted through midnight PST *****Wednesday, April 16! ****** Please indicate grade level and age of students participating! and CQ #4: GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN Olympus Mons is the highest feature on Mars. What is its counterpart on Earth? Be forewarned: it is not Mount Everest! Bonus Question: If you think about how astronomers measure the height of features on Mars, you'll have a clue to help this question. What do we mean? You are invited to send original student answers to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the words CHALLENGE QUESTION in the subject line of your email. Please indicate grade level and age of students participating. CQ #4 ANSWERS are due by midnight PST *****April 18th, this Friday! **** Jan Wee, moderator
