Use the Data Literacy Cubes to guide students’ exploration of data to enrich their observations and inferences. This is a flexible resource that may be used with a variety of graphical representations of data. This activity requires a graph for students to evaluate.
In this lesson, Observing Earth’s Seasonal Changes, students observe patterns of average snow and ice amounts as they change from one month to another, as well as connect the concepts of the tilt and orbit of the Earth (causing the changing of seasons) with monthly snow/ice data from January 2008
This activity is one of a series in the collection, The Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change activities.
Students explore the effects of ice sheets on global sea level using NASA data. Using the resources provided, students collaborate and communicate their findings in a jig-saw activity format.
GLOBE protocols have been developed as a collaborative effort involving scientists, educators and citizen scientists.
GLOBE eTraining provides the opportunity for new and existing GLOBE users to complete science protocol training at anytime, anywhere.
GLOBE projects provide student research experiences to explore and learn about Earth through a network of students, teachers, and scientists.
Check out this the Arctic and Earth SIGNs video to explore how climate models are used in climate change research.
Scientific data are often represented by assigning ranges of numbers to specific colors. The colors are then used to make an images which allow us to see patterns more easily. Students will make a false color image using a set of numbers.
Examine a true color satellite image to determine the volume of ice lost in the Eyjabakkajökull Glacier between 1973 and 1991.
