Using Vegetation, Precipitation, and Surface Temperature to Study Climate Zones
Using NASA's Live Access Server, earth scientists compare the temperature, precipitation, and normalized difference vegetation index for four different locations. They use the data to identify the climate zone of each location using the Koppen climate classification system.

Temperature Profile above the South Pole
Collecting and understanding data is a big part of understanding the world and how it changes. To better grasp what temperatures are changing and how they affect global populations, learners create a graph based on the date provided. They conduct a graphic analysis to see how temperatures in the troposphere are decreasing while temperatures in the stratosphere are increasing.

Temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius
Learners investigate the relationship between the Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales. Given two data points, they construct a linear function to describe the relationship, find the inverse of the function, and make observations about function values in the context of the problem.

Impact of Climate Change on Chinook Salmon
If your kids already know something about the water cycle, life cycle of salmon, and climate change, then they're ready to participate in an activity that explores Chinook salmon of the Pacific Northwest. They read an article and a case study, then discuss the potential or actual impact of climate change on the Chinook salmon.

Students measure temperature and become aware the the temperature above and below the snow is different. In this winter temperature instructional activity, students measure temperatures to find variation based on how the snow is packed. Students create a graph to show the temperature differences in different areas.

Star Light, Star Bright
Four modules are a part of this stellar lesson plan. Space scientists view the electromagnetic spectrum, they generate waves on a computer screen in order to measure frequency and wavelength, discover how light is related to temperature, and finally relate their learning to the temperature of stars.
