On 28 November 2017, a live webinar brings a scientist into the classroom to discuss impact craters on Earth. UNAWE and IAU astroEDU offer several activities on impact craters that teachers can use in their classrooms and outreach activities.
What can we learn by studying impact craters on Earth? And how can we avoid the fate of dinosaurs?
These are some of the questions asked during this webinar on impact craters. During the webinar, Dr Anna Losiak will cover the most important geological process in our Solar System. This is an interdisciplinary subject that can teach and inspire educators everywhere.
Join the live webinar with Dr Anna Losiak on 28 November 2017.
Educators can connect several activities to the topic of impact craters, like exoplanets, how it affected life and landscapes on Earth, or asteroids and meteors. Here is a selection of activities from Universe Awareness and IAU astroEDU:
- Asteroids (or here)
- Lunar Landscape (or here)
- Impact Craters
- Meteoroids, Meteors and Meteorites
- Planetary Maps for Children
