In this activity, learners construct a classroom-based Space Weather Action Center and use it to obtain, analyze, and record real solar data on a weekly basis. A set of sequential activities are also provided to engage the audience in making... (View More) informed decisions about space weather using their collected data. Please note a computer with an Internet connection is required in order access NASA data. Recommended related activities include "Understanding our Sun" and "Sharing New Knowledge" in the Space Weather teacher's guide. (View Less)
In this field activity, students observe clouds, and are introduced to dichotomous key to classify cloud types. Students also make weather observations of current weather and record and track changes in weather over time. Materials/equipment needed... (View More) include weather instruments (thermometers and barometers) and graph paper. A student self-assessment rubric, vocabulary linked to an on-line glossary, a list of elementary level trade books on weather, and teacher notes and class management suggestions are provided. This hands-on activity is related to NASA CERES Students' Cloud Observations Online (S’COOL) project. (View Less)
This is an online crossword about the Big Keck telescope. Learners can complete the crossword and read text about how the telescope works.
This game is intended to be used at the end of a unit on weather, providing a review of cloud and weather-related concepts. A student worksheet and a list of questions for teacher use, as well as student notes and suggestions for assessment are... (View More) included. The Student Cloud Observations On-Line (S'COOL) project encourages students of all ages to participate in real science by reporting ground truth observations of clouds, helping to assist in the validation of NASA's CERES satellite instruments.
