Anatomy of a CME

This is an activity about graph interpretation. Learners will compare, interpret, and discuss four graphs of the speed, temperature, magnetic field strength, and density of a coronal mass ejection as it swept past Earth in 1997.

Determining the Nature, Size, and Age of the Universe

In this lesson, students measure the size of several galaxies to reproduce a plot of Hubble's Law.

The Ozone Hole: Over 30 years of Satellite Observations

This two-sided poster presents images and information about ozone. The front features a series of color Earth images; each image reflects total ozone readings taken every October from 1979 to 2012.

Where In the World Are Major Environmental Changes?

Deforestation in Brazil is presented as an example of major environmental changes occurring worldwide. By comparing Landsat images of Rondônia, Brazil from 1975 and 1992, students will analyze the environmental impacts as well as the intended and unintended consequences of tree removal.

Modeling the Keeling Curve

In this problem set, learners will refer to the tabulated data used to create the Keeling Curve of atmospheric carbon dioxide to create a mathematical function that accounts for both periodic and long-term changes.

Awesome Saturn

Learners will complete one or more poems about Saturn using descriptive words. As a pre-writing activity, students generate a word list from books they have heard and read and images they have seen and created. With the support of the word lists, they will create poems.

Probability and Predictions

Students will learn about the NASA Kepler mission and Earth-like planet discoveries through reading a NASA press release. They will also view a NASA eClips™ video describing the search for planets beyond our solar system.

What Do You Know about Saturn?

Learners will draw and write to express their knowledge of Saturn. This is lesson 1 of 10 in "Reading, Writing & Rings!" for grades 1-2.

Freshwater Macroinvertebrates Protocol

This activity guides students through sampling, identification and counting of macroinvertebrates sampled in a GLOBE hydrology study site, and understand how the taxa composition found in the sample can be an indicator of water quality and ecosystem health.

Magnetic Magnitude Changes

This is an activity about the THEMIS (Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms) magnetometer and its ability to reveal many different types of disturbances in the Earth’s magnetic field.
