#### Activity 4: Alvin Dive, A Mysterious Encounter and Change Over Time

Pupils receive copies of the Time Series Observations to use for note-taking. They work in small groups to discuss what they see when the outside lights of Alvin are turned on, and off, where the bacteria may have come from. They view...

Lesson Planet

#### How Warm is the Water?

High schoolers research how surface sea temperature changes throughout the year. They draw a time series of sea surface temperatures for each month of the year and a depth profile for a summer and winter month using an OceanExplorer...

Lesson Planet

#### When It Rains It Pours More Drought and More Heavy Rainfall

Which is worse — drought or flooding? Neither is helpful to the environment, and both are increasing due to climate change. The 16th lesson in a series of 21 covers the average precipitation trends for two different climates within the...

Lesson Planet

#### Ghost Town

Around 93 percent of the reefs on Australia's Great Barrier Reef have been bleached, and almost one quarter of them are now dead. Scholars research the sea temperatures, especially around the areas with coral reefs, to make connections...

Lesson Planet

#### I Speak for the Polar Bears!

Climate change and weather extremes impact every species, but this lesson focuses on how these changes effect polar bears. After learning about the animal, scholars create maps of snow-ice coverage and examine the yearly variability and...

#### FRED in the Classroom: Debt and Deficit

Here is a hands-on activity where your class members will discover different ways to measure the government's financial situation and work to add data and redraw graphs in order to calculate the ratio of gross federal debt held by the...

Lesson Planet

#### FRED in the Classroom: Measures of Inflation

Don't just tell class members about how to measure inflation, have them experience it firsthand by asking them to work with real data and construct graphs!

Lesson Planet

#### Data Squares

Middle and high schoolers examine how data squares organize and sort information and data sets. They discuss examples of data squares, complete a data square about themselves, organize the data squares for the class together, and compile...

Lesson Planet

#### FRED in the Classroom: Employment and the Labor Force

Acquaint your class members with data sources for employment in the United States and help them gain a better understanding of a vital measure of our economy's health.

Lesson Planet

#### Students and Teachers

Predict the future of education through a mathematical analysis. Using a project-based learning strategy, classes examine the pattern of student-to-teacher ratios over a period of years. Provided with the relevant data, learners create a...

Lesson Planet

#### Is Grandpa Right, Were Winters Colder When He Was a Boy?

Middle schoolers compare current weather data to historic data to see if there is a temperature change. In this weather lesson students complete a lab activity and determine average changes in temperature, precipitation and cloud cover.

Lesson Planet

#### Solar Cell Energy Availability From Around the Country

Students determine areas that are the most likely to produce solar energy by using NASA data. In this solar energy lesson students analyze plots and determine solar panel use.

Lesson Planet

#### Plate Tectonics

Does the temperature of the surface of the earth relate to the movement of the earth's plates? Three variables — temperature, composition, and thickness encourage scholars to discover plate tectonics. They create mountains, volcanoes,...

Lesson Planet

#### Trends of Snow Cover and Temperature in Alaska

Students gather historical snow cover and temperature data from the MY NASA DATA Web site. They compare this data to data gathered using ground measurements from the ALISON Web site for Shageluk Lake. They graph both sets of data and...

Lesson Planet

#### Hurricanes As Heat Engines

Students examine sea surface temperatures to see how hurricanes get heat from the oceans surface. In this hurricanes lesson students use the Internet to find data and make line plots.

Lesson Planet

#### Combustion and Air Quality: Emissions Monitoring

Help your class determine the types of pollutants coming from vehicle exhaust. Groups use an air quality monitor to determine the emissions from different vehicles, to gain knowledge about combustion energy, and to predict how the...

Lesson Planet

#### Human Effect

Students investigate changes in air quality. In this science lesson plan, students compare data to determine the air quality. Students explore how humans affect the air quality.
