Paths - What Are They and Who Makes Them?

Students will complete several activities in which they will describe, draw, examine and explore paths.

Dead Right, Dead Wrong

Students will research and evaluate information about global warming, identify decision-making criteria for action or lack of action, and decide what level of certainty is sufficient to take action.

What's Hot in Yellowstone National Park

In this activity, learners discover new perspectives on geothermal features, such as geysers, mudpots, hot springs, and hot spring terraces by exploring infrared images.

Energy for Me: Sustaining My Community with Renewable Energy

In this problem-based learning unit, learners explore the possibilities of sustainable energy, and engage in a project to provide electricity for their city using alternative energy sources. Instructions to access NASA data are provided along with additional resources and activities.

Dance of the Moon and Oceans

This is an activity about the tides. Learners discover how the Moon's gravitational pull causes the level of the ocean to rise and fall twice a day along most coastlines.

Climate Kids: The Climate Time Machine

Use the imbedded sliding scale to observe changes in sea ice distribution, carbon emission levels and average global temperatures over time, as well as the effects of variations in sea level rise along coastal regions.

Cosmic Times 2019

Students predict the next discoveries that will shape our understanding of the nature of the expanding universe as they write the 100th anniversary edition of Cosmic Times.

An Inversion Model

This demonstration allows students to visualize inversion in a fluid, explain it in terms of density, and apply the concept to weather systems and convection. Materials required include four Ehrlenmeyer flasks, two thin glass plates, a heat source, and food coloring.

GLOBE e-Training Modules

These e-training resources from the GLOBE Program consist of three modules for teachers and one for scientists: Introduction to GLOBE; Introduction to GLOBE for Scientists; Introduction to the Atmosphere Investigation Area, and Clouds Protocols.
