>Does any class know about Mars pre-assessment activity?

The Live From Mars Teacher's Guide (pages 10-16) provides
educators with Opening activiites including a pre-assessment
activity entitled "What Do I Know About Mars?" -- Activity
A.1 -- using the KWL approach (What Do I Know?  What do I Want to Know?
and What have I Learned?)  Students also create a portfolio for 
displaying and organizing their work.  Suggestions for contents
are detailed in the activity overview. 

You can access this activity online via the Live From 
Mars web site --- Teacher's Lounge, then select Learning Resources --
Teacher's Guide.  Or you may simply copy and paste
this URL into your web browser!

Hope this helps!

PS:  Thanks to Marilyn Wall and Rose Galizer for sharing
their *culminating* LFM activities.  Sounds like your
schools both had super events.
