Mars stuff for Kids!

Mars is the setting for my newest book, Sam and the Dragon, a chapter book for kids ages 9-12!  I will announce the release date very soon.  Today I came across a really fun site all about Mars with activities for kids.  NASA is sending a spacecraft called Orion to Mars in December.  Orion will carry a microchip with people’s names on it, just for fun.  If you’d like to send your name or a “postcard” to Mars, you can follow the links on this site.  There are lots more free activities, too!  Have fun!

Here’s the link: http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/participate/funzone/
