Water on Planetary Surfaces

For this water on planetary surfaces worksheet, students read about the Galileo spacecraft and the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa. They read about the energy needed to keep the water in a liquid state on Europa. Students solve 4 problems including finding energy of electrical items in Joules and converting to Watts and determining the time it takes to melt a block of ice using a 2,000 watt hair dryer.

Lesson Planet has helped me find new ways to present information to my students. It's nice to have fresh ideas.
