In this problem-based learning activity, students assume roles as members of the Department of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). Your major area of concern is locating areas best for collecting solar power. You will need to evaluate... (View More)

This activity is about the role of plants as carbon sinks. Using atom signs made of construction paper, a blanket and other materials, learners will visualize the role of plants in storing carbon and discuss what may lead to its release. This the... (View More)

Assuming the role of a meteorologist, students will proclaim one month as "Thunderstorm season" for their chosen study area. This decision will be based on analysis of deep convective cloud data downloaded from the Live Access Server. This lesson... (View More)

In this hands-on activity, learners will build a solar cooker by lining a box with reflective material and adding a translucent cover. The cooker can be used to make food products. This activity recommends use of empty (clean) pizza boxes. This... (View More)

This activity is about how fossil fuels release carbon. Learners will use toys, sand and other materials to simulate a city, considering the formation of fossil fuels and how burning these releases carbon and produces warming. As part of the... (View More)

This is an activity about using what you can see to identify what you cannot see. Learners will use the criteria they developed in the previous activity in this sequence and analyze whole Sun magnetic map data sets in order to find suspected... (View More)

This activity is about the carbon cycle. Using construction paper and signs, learners will simulate chemical bonds and the energy exchanges that take place during the carbon cycle. They will then respond to questions about the processes of... (View More)

This is an activity about using what you can see to identify what you cannot see. Learners will examine images of the Sun taken over one complete solar rotation and look for data features that appear on the farside of the Sun which persist at the... (View More)

This is a hands-on lab activity about seawater density. After developing a hypothesis, learners will conduct a simple investigation of density. They will discuss changes in density observed and describe how salt affects the density of water.... (View More)

This is a hands-on lab activity about seawater density, specifically the relationship between density of fluid, weight of an object, and buoyancy. Learners will develop hypotheses and observe a demonstration of density to understand its role in... (View More)
