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 data, whether the data originates from students' investigations with personally-collected data or data that they have acc
Land surface temperature is how hot the “surface” of the Earth would feel to the touch in a particular location. From a satellite’s point of view, the “surface” is whatever it sees when it looks through the atmosphere to the ground.
This activity is one of a series in the collection, The Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change activities.
Visit NASA NEO's Global Temperature Anomaly to observe values for months or years. These maps — developed by NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) — depict how much various regions of the world have warmed or cooled when compared with a base period of 1951-1980.
Purpose: Consider using this mini-lesson during the last 10 minutes of the class period/lesson to assess students formative learning.
Whether or not you are an elementary, middle, or high school science teacher, we bet that you observe and investigate air temperatures or (their effects) with your students. Changing air temperatures are cyclical and predictable, but also are rising beyond the normal range due to a variety of fa
NASA visualizers take data – numbers, codes – and turn them into animations people can see and quickly understand. You can become a data visualizer by creating your own flipbook animations using maps of science variables that NASA scientists commonly study to better understand the Earth System.
Visualize NASA data on a custom map using our Earth System Data Explorer to generate your own maps and graphs. See the Dataset in LAS to see the range of datasets supporting this phenomenon.
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.
