This mini lesson engages students in writing a commentary for a NASA video regarding changes in global temperatures from 1880 to 2017.
Students observe seasonal images of Monthly Normalized Difference Vegetation, looking for any changes in vegetation that are occurring throughout the year.
Explore using units in calculations with the Leaf Area Index (LAI). LAI is a ratio that describes the number of square meters of leaves per square meter of available land surface. Because of the units in the ratio, it is dimensionless
Explore using units for calculations with Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). NDVI is a ratio of different light wavelength reflectance which can be used to map the density of green vegetation.
Students create a histogram using tropical cyclone data. This is part of the Tropical Cyclone Counts Graphing Bundle and can be completed independently or with the other activities in the bundle.

Use the Data Literacy Map Cubes to familiarize yourself with and interpret the model.
Learners will analyze and interpret a box plot and evaluate the spread of the data. Learners will compare it with a different visualization of the data to see how the two compare, discuss the limitations of the two types of data displays and formulate questions.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to create, a box plot and evaluate the spread of the data.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to create a scatter plot and evaluate the spread of the data. This is part of the Tropical Cyclone Counts Graphing Bundle and can be completed independently or...
