The Ahnighito Meteorite
- Grades: 3–5
After taking your students on a virtual tour of the American Museum of Natural History, consider these follow-up classroom activities for each of the field trip stops: the wolf diorama, the giant mosquito model, and the Ahnighito Meteorite.
What’s the difference between a meteor and a meteorite? What about a comet and an asteroid? A supernova and a supergiant?
Put together a collection of six or so different types of rocks, including a meteorite. Challenge your students to figure out which one is the meteorite.
