Blocking the Sun: Earth's External Heat Engine and the Earth's Atmosphere
Using a detailed worksheet, advanced earth science learners examine radiation data and graphs. They compare the solar energy reaching different latitudes and the effects of the atmosphere on insolation. The exercises are comprehensive. The graphs and diagrams on the worksheets are a little lighter than the typed font, so you might have to explain if they are hard to read.

Where's the Water? Stream Side Science
After a whole-class discussion of water reservoirs, ten liters of water are given to each lab group to represent Earth's total amount of water. They divide the water into smaller containers, each representing one of those reservoirs. The goal is to estimate the percentage of Earth's total water that is contained in each.

Amounts of Dissolved Oxygen in Various Bodies of Water
Students test water to determine the dissolved oxygen content while displaying the proper use of testing instruments while visiting water testing sites. They determine if the amount of dissolved oxygen is appropriate for the tested water. Next, they interpret the data that is collected on worksheets and determine what could skew the results.
