This video highlights students taking scientific measurements to support investigations in atmospheric science, hydrology, soils, and land cover. It shows students reporting data through the Web, creating scientific visualizations for analysis, and... (View More)

Multiple activities illustrate the concept of changes in bodies of water over time. Emphasis is placed on the use of remote sensing to monitor changes in water bodies that are due to climate change, erosion, drought, human intervention and natural... (View More)

In this activity, students model the water cycle using a set of glass bowls, water, salt, clear plastic wrap, and a marble. and observe the process of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. They observe that water can change from a liquid to... (View More)

In this problem-based learning activity, teams are charged by NASA to position a satellite to watch for the formation of hurricanes. Students plot the origins of historic hurricanes on a map, and use the data to identify an area of 5 degrees... (View More)

Focusing on air, water, land and life, this video describes how these components are connected in the Earth system through the flow of energy, cycles of water and biogeochemistry. Methods of studying the Earth system, ranging from field observations... (View More)

This demonstration allows students to visualize how heat moves through convection - using water, food coloring, a small cup and a large jar - and prompts them to make a connection between the observed process and cloud formation. The resource is... (View More)

In this demonstration, students learn that air flows from a high-pressure area to a low pressure area, and greater the differences between pressure areas, the greater the wind speed. The demonstration uses an apparatus made from two 2L beverage... (View More)

In this demonstration, relative humidity is modeled using a sponge and a pan of water, and the concept of saturation is depicted. Students answer questions examining the relationship between temperature and the capacity of air to hold water vapor.... (View More)

Students use this worksheet to guide research as they learn how to prepare for a hurricane. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA Sci Files: The Case of the Phenomenal Weather. Lesson objectives supported by the... (View More)
