Some bird species appear to respond to extreme weather changes in their native habitat by moving to more hospitable environments. This article discusses the role of NASA satellites, along with field and citizen scientists, in studying that movement.... (View More)

Students will design, build and then test a rain gauge to measure precipitation. By sharing their results, students will recognize the need for standardization and precision in scientific tools. The lesson uses the 5E instructional model. All... (View More)

In this activity, students will watch a short video on the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission, learn about the parts of the satellite, and then construct their own edible model of GPM. This lesson uses the 5E instructional model.

Learners will read or listen to a story about two sisters, Marisol and Sofia, as they explore the Sun's role in the water cycle. Additionally, numerous extension resources are included in the accompanying educator guide, such as suggestions for... (View More)

This activity is about groundwater and how an underground aquifer can be affected by actions on the surface that are miles away. Using an aquarium, leaners will construct an interactive groundwater model to demonstrate how water flows through the... (View More)

This activity is about the processes that have shaped the eastern coastline of the United States, specifically considering the impact of pollution. Learners will use model habitats to simulate the runoff of pollutants and consider how they might... (View More)

In this activity, learners will use maps and images as information-gathering tools. After reading background information on Devil's Hole Pupfish, learners will work on groups of two to use Google maps and satellite images to compare their... (View More)

This activity is about the impact of climate change in aquatic ecosystems. Learners will build two aquatic habitats using soda bottles and other materials and simulate climate change conditions in one of the habitats. After making daily qualitative... (View More)
