There are many activities and protocols in GLOBE that support learning about Earth's changes in land surface and use. Please note: My NASA Data Geosphere phenomena relate closely to GLOBE Pedosphere (soil) and GLOBE Biosphere resources.
Check out these learning activities to help prepare students for collecting data and support the integration of MND with GLOBE in your curriculum.
Interested in collecting data about the featured phenomenon at your school? Visit this page to explore GLOBE protocols (data collection procedures) and student datasheets that support your students' investigations.
Using the technology inside your phone (or tablets), students can help scientists classify land cover and track changes.
Need inspiration for how to engage students in meaningful projects centered on this featured phenomenon? Check out these GLOBE students' presentations/projects focused on the changes in land surface/land us change.
Soil is the great integrator storing and affecting the chemistry of water, storing and releasing heat at Earth’s surface, retaining the effects of past climate and other forces of soil formation, while providing the medium for virtually all plant growth on land.
Soil Moisture GLOBE Learning Activities have been developed to provide students with a hands-on experience to guide their understanding of the properties of soil that affect the amount of moisture it will hold.
In this storybook, the GLOBE kids are on the trail of Scoop, an eager dog who loves to dig holes in the soil (pedosphere). At each hole, Scoop has dug, the kids use their journals to record characteristics of the soil.
