In this activity, learners will use satellite data to investigate the biological health of the ocean. Using a color scale, learners will study ocean color data from NASA's Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) to evaluate the biological... (View More)

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)

This investigation requires students to locate several major U.S. cities using four different sources: an outline map, a nighttime lights image, an atlas map, and a space shuttle image. After analyzing and comparing the information from those... (View More)

In this activity, learners will analyze a satellite image of the Missouri River to find evidence that a river channel has changed position over time. They will then build a display, such as a poster or model, that identifies and describes the... (View More)

Audience: Middle school
Materials Cost: $1 - $5 per group of students

Subsistence agriculture is introduced and described through text, satellite images, space shuttle photos, ground photos and maps. After reviewing all resources, student teams debate whether intensive subsistence agriculture (e.g., rice production)... (View More)

The impacts of natural disasters are described in imaginary pen pal letters from peers who reside in the pathways of four authentic natural disasters: a volcanic lava flow in Hawaii, a volcanic ash cloud in Russia, a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico... (View More)

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)

This investigation demonstrates the applicability of images and geography to everyday life. Using an image of a large shopping mall in Huntsville, Alabama, as an example, students will analyze the location of the mall and use of the surrounding... (View More)
