Climate Change in My Backyard (Grades 7-9)

This curriculum uses an inquiry-based Earth system science approach, and leverages Project BudBurst, a citizen science phenology project, to engage students in authentic research on plant and ecosystem responses to climate change.

Sun and Space Weather: A Presentation for High School Teachers

This is a presentation about various features on the Sun created by magnetic activity. Learners will hear and read about sunspots, solar flares, and coronal mass ejections. Additionally, learners will hear about how and why current NASA missions are gathering more information about the Sun.

Where Do They Come From? Looking at Asteroids

This is a lesson about the connection between meteorites and asteroids, focusing on remote-sensing techniques using light.

GLAST Large Area Telescope Simulator

The main scientific instrument on the Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) is the Large Area Telescope (LAT).

Paper Plate Phases Modeling Lunar Cycles

Explore lunar phases as viewed from Earth using paper plates. While standing in the appropriate spot in the moon's orbit, students hold paper plates that depict the Moon's phase.

What Do You Know About Magnets?

This is an activity about magnets and magnetism. Learners first make predictions about magnets, such as a list of the types of materials a magnet will pick up, how a magnet can be made, and how a compass can be made.

Climate Kids: Gallery of Fresh Water

This series of 12 captioned images depict some of the issues facing Earth’s fresh water supply, such as pollution, drought, and glacial retreat. The Climate Kids website is a NASA education resource featuring articles, videos, images and games focused on the science of climate change.

Fishing for Supernovae

Students will play a card game similar to "go fish" in which they match multi-wavelength images of different supernova remnants.

Navigating the Earth with a Compass

This lesson is an introduction to the use of a magnetic compass.

MY NASA DATA: Investigating Nitrogen Dioxide

In this lesson students will investigate nitrogen dioxide levels in the atmosphere over a one-year period. The students will have to look at several regions from around the world to draw conclusions regarding NO2 amounts.
