GEEBITT (Global Equilibrium Energy Balance Interactive TinkerToy)
7th - 9th CCSS: Adaptable
Learners use the GEEBITT excel model to explore how global average temperatures are affected by changes in our atmosphere in part two of this series of seven lessons. Working in groups, they discuss, analyze graphs, and enter data to...
Investigating the Climate System: Energy, A Balancing Act
9th - 12th
Earth science explorers design an experiment to demonstrate that the albedo of a surface affects its temperature. They test to find out if moisture on the surface affects temperature. They discover whether or not concrete or asphalt heat...
Using Mathematic Models to Investigate Planitary Habitablity
11th - 12th
Students examine how the sun's intensity affects the temperature on various planets. They determine whether or not these planets could be habitable. Finally, they factor in the average albedo of the planets to determine whether or not...
