Students will analyze and interpret graphs to compare the flow of (shortwave) energy from the Sun toward China over the course of a year on cloudy versus clear days. Students will draw a conclusion and support it with evidence.
In this activity, we will introduce children to the colors of the sky. Children love to look at clouds. Here we will focus in on the sky in which clouds float. Children will learn why the sky has such a wide range of colors.
This lesson is taken from NASA's Phytopia: Discovery of the Marine Ecosystem written in partnership with Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Science with funding from the National Science Foundation.
Students use Phytopia: Exploration of the Marine Ecosystem, a computer-based tool, to investigate various phytoplankton species and topics relating to phytoplankton biology.
This digital badge will introduce you to Veggie, a project taking place at the Space Station Processing Facility, at Kennedy Space Center. The badge provides educators with the background information they need to incorporate this project into the classroom.
Use the Data Literacy Map Cubes to familiarize yourself with and interpret the model.
Students observe images, individually, looking for changes in surface air temperatures (using data displayed, unit of measure, range of values, etc.) and patterns noticeable within the maps.
