This textbook chapter makes the case for preserving desert old growth forests, and endangered species. The captive breeding program for the black-footed ferret is presented as a case study. Students learn about conservation practices they can do,... (View More)

In this problem-based data analysis activity, students identify trends and make predictions about the possible influence of climatic factors and vegetative growth on macro invertebrates. Step-by-step instructions for use of the MY NASA DATA Live... (View More)

This activity is about threatened and endangered species, specifically considering the impact of climate change. Learners will become familiar with classification of animals, conduct research and make a master list of threatened and endangered plant... (View More)

This activity is about how climate change may impact organisms and ecosystems. Learners will answer questions and discuss a number of resources provided, including a video clip, on the impacts of climate change on bark beetle populations and... (View More)

This activity is about underwater mapping and its importance in deep-water exploration. Working in groups, learners will use bathymetric survey data to create a two-dimensional topographic map. They will use that map to create a three-dimensional... (View More)

This activity is about the relationship between habitat destruction and wildlife population. Learners will graph data provided about the prairie potholes and discuss the effects of habitat destruction and climate change on waterfowl breeding. They... (View More)

This article provides students with an overview of the technologies used to study the health of the Chesapeake Bay, which is at risk for eutrophication from non-point source pollution. The article describes how data from research vessels, buoys, and... (View More)

In this activity, students learn about the biological and physical conditions that lead to eutrophication of a water system by using real-time data to predict the the growth of harmful algae. They also conduct research on the Internet to learn more... (View More)

In pairs, students will create experimental conditions in terrariums in order to study what plants need to live. Variables to study include the presence or absence of soil, water, and sunlight. Students will record the growth of radish plants as... (View More)

In this activity, student teams design small-scale physical models of hot and cold planets, (Venus and Mars), and learn that small scale models allow researchers to determine how much larger systems function. There is both a team challenge and... (View More)
