# What Is There to See From Sea to Shining Sea?

This investigation teaches that physical and human features are used to characterize places on Earth. Since types of both features are visible from space, students will use NASA images to complete several activities: matching images to geographic... (View More)

# How Do Images Help Us Learn About Our Planet Earth?

Nighttime light patterns on Earth have been recorded using NASA satellites. In this investigation, students will correlate those patterns of lights with the distribution of human populations, and then determine if related statements included in the... (View More)

# Does What You See Depend On Where You Are?

In this activity, students compare and contrast the visual perspectives that result when viewing objects from different distances. In part one of this lesson, students view simple shapes from varying distances and record their observations. Then, in... (View More)

# How Can We Compare Maps with Images from Space?

Maps and images are examined, compared and contrasted in this introductory lesson. Beginning with the school building map typically posted in their classroom, students analyze the information it contains, describe its features, and determine its... (View More)

# Some Unusual Pathways

Photos and images taken from the space shuttle are used to show unusual paths, such as those created by smoke, camel tracks, lava flows, and river deltas. After observing and discussing the images, students will record their observations, and draw... (View More)

# How Do Paths Look From Different Perspectives?

Using both literature (a book featuring a path, such as Little Red Riding Hood) and satellite images, students will identify paths, observe and analyze them from different altitudes, and distinguish natural paths from those made by humans. Students... (View More)

# How Does Color Help Us Understand Images From Space?

Color is an important tool used in studying and interpreting satellite images. In this set of activities, students will make a color map of the global biosphere, distinguish between and learn the importance of true colors and false colors on... (View More)
