NASA's free resources for educators hits a high with these engaging and inquiry based activities.! I have conducted this activity during chemistry and space science classes from middle through high school. The % distribution of elements along with individual characteristics and importance of the elements is "visualized" as students explore their "Universe Trail Mix."
