Students build snow goggles similar to those used by the Inuit people. They create their version of the goggles to improve upon existing designs. Pupils compare the process used to invent snow goggles with that employed by the MESSENGER mission designers. Students discover that the basic principles of using the scientific method for solving problems are the same, regardless of whether the exact solution to the problem is the same.
Students observe a demonstration of how melting snow and ice can contribute to mudflows. They then observea list of continents with the number of snow and ice covered mountains on each continent and discuss. They then label a group of volcanoes on a blank map and plot a volcano and its snowline including its approximate latitude.
Third graders explore different kinds of weather. In this weather activity, 3rd graders discover the different ways humans protect themselves from weather. Students read the book Pink Snow and Other Weird Weather by Jennifer Dussling. After reading students make their own weather charts and discuss what to wear during different types of weather.
Students investigate the effects of light radiation on the human eyes. They construct a pair of snow goggles that are used to see how a filter can protect the eyes from radiation. Then students explain how the scientific method can be used to help solve different problems.
