Students will explore albedo, sea ice and the relationship between changing albedo and changing sea ice.
Students evaluate graphs and images of sea ice and relate them to changes in albedo. Students make a claim about the interaction of albedo and sea ice extent.
Students will make a claim about whether changing albedo contributes to changes in Arctic habitats.
This lesson connects day/night and seasonal cycles with albedo in the Arctic region. Students will explore seasonal changes of albedo.
Students will use the NASA Earth Observations analysis tool to explore changing albedo in the Arctic compared with other areas of Earth.
