Why Should Students Research Earth System Science?
- Because We Live on Earth - No matter where you eat, sleep, play, pray, or work, we are all constantly connected to Earth's System's plants, animals, weather, oceans, etc.
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.
My NASA Data is supported, through partnership, with the following projects:
Use your Cloud Teller to practice vocabulary, learn different cloud types, and help with NASA GLOBE cloud observations.
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.
The My NASA Data website offers a variety of opportunities to explore Earth Science phenomena of the Atmosphere, Biosphere, Cryosphere, Geosphere, and Hydrosphere using uniquely NASA related content. Come and explore the site to learn about the following content types in each of the sphere pages
The Cryosphere refers to any place on Earth where water is in its solid form, where low temperatures freeze water and turn it into ice. The frozen water can be in the form of solid ice or snow and occurs in many places around the Earth.
Through guided inquiry, students will identify interactions of the four major scientific spheres on Earth: biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and geosphere. They will then identify how these systems are represented and interact in their classroom aquarium.
How much do you know about the frozen poles of our home planet?
