The Quick Start Guide lists examples of NASA datasets and imagery that could be used for student investigations related to content and practices in the Framework for K-12 Science Education.

Cryosphere

The Cryosphere refers to any place on Earth where water is in its solid form, where low temperatures freeze water and turn it into ice. The frozen water can be in the form of solid ice or snow and occurs in many places around the Earth.

GLOBE

The GLOBE Program is structured around “Earth as a System”, comprised of the various spheres and the interactions that occur within and among those spheres.

These data resources are designed to help teachers integrate authentic NASA data into their lessons to support problem-based learning (PBL) and other data-rich lessons. These education tools are useful to address data literacy in the Earth Science classroom.
