Derived from the Science on a Sphere film entitled "Water Falls," this short (2:50) video presents basic information on the percentage, allocation, and distribution of Earth's usable water.
Images from NASA satellites showing atmospheric phenomena such as cyclones, hurricanes, high/low pressures, clouds and the jet stream are featured in this 10-minute planetarium show.
Students begin this activity by building a model of Earth’s magnetic field using a bar magnet to show Earth’s Ring current (the magnetic field which is in opposition to Earth’s magnetic field). Using this model, students will then observe the... (View More) response of a magnetic field to a fluctuating electrical current. The lesson includes teacher background information, worksheets, an answer key, extensions and resources. (View Less)
This Science On a Sphere video and docent show (script and playlist), explores factors that render Earth habitable and influence Earth's energy budget. The video gives an overview of NASA's Search for "Goldilocks Planets" - planets that are not too... (View More) hot or too cold for liquid water. (View Less)
This series of ten lessons has been developed to teach students about local and global water issues. They are based on NASA’s Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Mission. The activities are done largely outdoors and include scientific data... (View More) collection and analysis and integrate technology. Many of the lessons involve data collected based on protocols from the GLOBE Program. Each lesson is designed to take one hour; the lessons build on each other, but can also be used independently. Each lesson topic includes a lesson plan, PowerPoint presentation, student capture sheet and capture sheet answer guide. (View Less)
Emphasizing the synergies between science and engineering, these video clips highlight the research of professional ocean scientists and engineers in various disciplines. The clips are accompanied by additional relevant content including images,... (View More) data visualizations, graphs, animations, and other information. Content has been organized into more than a dozen thematic areas such as Solving Old Problems with New Technology and Small Scale Observations and Large Scale Ideas. All content has been aligned with science and engineering practices from the Next Generation Science Standards, including "asking questions and solving problems" and "planning and carrying out investigations," providing applicable resources for teachers who want to provide role models of effective practice for their students.
