In spite of the low temperatures in parts of the United States last month, 2018 experienced globally the third warmest April in 138 years of modern record-keeping, according to a monthly analysis of global temperatures by scientists at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York
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.

Atmospheric conditions have a significant impact on the types of plants and animals that live in a particular area. As temperatures begin to change both plants and animals will be affected.
Each of the GLOBE protocols has a set of learning activities to help students learn more about the instruments and procedures for the measurements, the content associated with the protoco
