This story map is intended to be used with students who have access to a computing device in a 1:1 or 1:2 setting. Using various visualizations (i.e., images, charts, and graphs), students will explore changes in sea ice extent as it relates to other spheres within the Earth System.
Students will explore albedo, sea ice and the relationship between changing albedo and changing sea ice.
Students will use the NASA Earth Observations analysis tool to explore changing albedo in the Arctic compared with other areas of Earth.
This lesson connects day/night and seasonal cycles with albedo in the Arctic region. Students will explore seasonal changes of albedo.
Students will make a claim about whether changing albedo contributes to changes in Arctic habitats.
