This graphic organizer may be used to help students analyze the processes and components of Earth System phenomena.
Scientific data are often represented by assigning ranges of numbers to specific colors. The colors are then used to make false color images which allow us to see patterns more easily. Students will make a false-color image using a set of numbers.
This digital GLOBE Earth system (digital) poster images show global visualizations of different science variables for 2019, 2018, 2016, and 2013. Students may use these images to find patterns among different environmental data, understand the relationships among different environmental parameters, and more.
This lesson walks students through the use of Landsat false-color imagery and identification of different land cover features using these as models. Building from an original GLOBE lesson, this resource features Google Slide and Jamboard to assist in both face-to-face and virtual learning.
In this lesson, students will explore the effect of aerosols on sky color and visibility by using an interactive virtual model.
