Students are introduced to the Earthrise phenomenon by seeing the Earth as the Apollo 8 astronauts viewed our home planet for the first time from the Moon. They will analyze a time series of mapped plots of Earth science variables that NASA monitors to better understand the Earth Syste
This activity invites students to model and observe the effect of melting ice sheets (from land) on sea level and the difference between the effect of melting sea-ice to that of melting land ice on sea level.
The processes comprising the Earth’s environment are interconnected.
Students will practice constructing claims using evidence and reasoning.
NASA visualizers take data – numbers, codes – and turn them into animations people can see and quickly understand.
This activity invites students to simulate and observe the different effects on sea level from melting sea-ice.
