My sixth graders and I are heavily into it now and I want them to build a
scale model of their Mars base. I already plan on building out of old
computer parts, telephone wire, tin cans, etc. and making working geodesic
greenhouses w/straws, saran wrap and styrofoam meat trays...
My problem is this: What would work best to simulate the Martian landscape?
Should we do paper mache or coat the board w/unfired terra cotta clay? (I
have plenty in one of my personal reclaim buckets in my garage at home) I
don't care if it cracks a little or becomes dusty as that will help simulate
Mars, but will it stick to the plywood we're using as a base ok? Thanks for
