Sea Level Rise: GLOBE Learning Activities

Students Doing GLOBE

Building a Thermometer: Students will construct a soda-bottle thermometer, which is similar to the thermometer used by GLOBE schools. Both are based on the principle that most substances expand and contract as their temperature changes. This experiment also demonstrates the principle of heat transfer. The thermometer can be used to measure water temperature.
