This story map allows students to explore the urban heat island effect using land surface temperature and vegetation data in a 5 E-learning cycle.
Using various visualizations (i.e., images, charts, and graphs), students will explore the energy exchange that occurs when hurricanes extract heat energy from the ocean. 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.
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 observe monthly images of changing vegetation patterns, looking for seasonal changes occurring throughout 2017.
