## Exploring Washington, DC, from Space

In this problem set, learners will analyze an image of Washington, DC, taken from orbit. They will determine scale and take measurements of several features in the image. A link to more images taken from the International Space Station and the answer key are provided.

## MMS Bookmark Activity

This is a lithograph about NASA's Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission, or MMS. Learners will cut out and assemble a colorful 3D model of an MMS spacecraft. Web links, additional facts, and QR codes are included for audiences to access more information.

## Melting Ice

In this lesson, students explore a discrepant event when they design an experiment to measure the rate that ice melts when in pure water versus salt water.

## How Does Color Help Us Understand Images From Space?

Color is an important tool used in studying and interpreting satellite images.

## Earth's Energy Budget Poster

This poster includes an energy budget diagram on the front depicting our best understanding of energy flows into and away from the Earth.

## Earth Exploration Toolbook: Exploring Air Quality in Aura NO2 Data

In this chapter, students will explore relationships between air quality and population density using the image visualization tool, Google Earth.

## Angular Measure

Students will learn about the Transit of Venus through reading a NASA press release and viewing a NASA eClips™ video that describes several ways to observe transits.

Learners will construct a simple device to measure how effective different materials are for protecting against sunlight, explain how heat relates to the motion of atoms and molecules, describe how heat can be transmitted from one place to another, explain how sunlight arriving on Earth interacts

## Geometry and Angle Relationships

This is a set of one-page problems about distance craft travel on Mars. Learners will use the Pythagorean Theorem to determine distance between a series of hypothetical exploration sites within Gale Crater on Mars.

## Moon in Action

Learners go outside on a clear evening and view the sky to see the Moon for themselves. Using sky charts, children navigate the Moon’s impact craters, flat plains (maria), and mountains with the naked eye and binoculars or telescopes.
