This story map is intended to be used with students who have access to a computing device in a 1:1 or 1:2 setting. Using various visualizations (i.e., images, charts, and graphs), students will explore changes in sea ice extent as it relates to other spheres within the Earth System.

Students analyze data from graphs for sea ice extent (area) in both polar regions (Arctic and Antarctic) to learn about seasonal variations and over a 30-year period to learn about longer-term trends.
Are you looking for a storyline about using albedo values to measure change in the cryosphere using NASA data? Consider using the following resources in your classroom today!
The radar measurements made by NASA's Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory are sensitive to whether land surfaces are frozen or thawed. Students analyze two maps of SMAP data to make inferences about changes to the Arctic's Geosphere showing spring thaw.
Students will explore albedo, sea ice and the relationship between changing albedo and changing sea ice.
This lesson walks students through the use of false-color imagery from Landsat and the identification of different land cover features using these as models. Building from an original GLOBE lesson, this resource features Google Slide and Jamboard to assist in both face-to-face and virtual learni
My NASA Data has recently released several new resources, story maps, for use in educational settings.
