This photo of Earth taken in December 1968 by the Apollo 8 astronauts was the first time humans were able to see our home planet as an isolated sphere in space.
Explore the energy and matter cycles found within the Earth System.
Students review the NASA video showing biosphere data over the North Atlantic Ocean as a time series animation displaying a decade of phytoplankton blooms and answer questions that follow.
Students can interact with NASA data to build a custom visualizations of of local, regional, or global plant growth patterns over time. Use the Earth System Data Explorer to generate plots of satellite data as you develop models of this phenomenon.
See the following datasets in the Earth System Data Explorer:
Forests are an important and common feature of the Earth’s land cover, covering 31 percent of the total land surface. There are two regions in particular where forests are common.
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. This Guide is part of an educator toolkit that features resources for grades K-12 that can support and frame student investigations with NASA data and content. Check out the toolkit and samplers for elementary, middle, and high school at https://www.strategies.org/education/educators-toolkit/.
Observe the seasonal global images of the chlorophyll data from 2017 and put in chronological order.
