Geography Resources for High School
Created by Theresa Schwerin Last updated 11/15/2013
Here are some NASA geography-related resources.
- Students learn first hand latitude and longitude impact climate by researching the climate for a specific 10° x 10° quadrant of the country. Students will download data sets on both temperature and precipitation for their quadrant and will determine averages for each of those factors. Using that information, students will construct ad analyze a climatogram (a climate diagram).
- This activity is designed to introduce students to planetary geologic features and processes. First, students will use NASA satellite images to identify geologic surface features on the "Blue Marble" (Earth), and will explore the connection between those features and the geologic processes that created them. Using that information, students will then compare and discuss similar features on images from other planets.
