Teachers, these mini-lessons/student activities are perfect "warm-up" tasks that can be used as a hook, bellringer, exit slip, etc.
This lesson is designed to help students analyze the interaction between different cloud types and Earth's incoming and outgoing energy.
Students will analyze a pie chart (circle graph) showing the distribution of different parts of the Earth system the in absorption and reflection of energy.
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.
