Using Vegetation, Precipitation, and Surface Temperature to Study Climate ZonesLesson Planet
6th - 12th
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...
Sea Surface Temperature, Salinity, and DensityLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Earth's vast ocean is full of mysteries! Science scholars discover the big-picture properties that influence its characteristics at different latitudes using a lesson from PBS's Weather and Climate series. After completing a background...
Sea Surface Temperature and Coral BleachingLesson Planet
5th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
A toolkit is something that has what you need to fix or make something. You just clicked on a teacher's toolkit for introducing the concept of coral bleaching in relation to climate change and changing sea temperatures. In it, you will...
CO2 and TemperatureLesson Planet
7th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Scientists can model global surface temperature with and without considering human emissions, but does do these factors really make a difference? Two interactive graphs demonstrate some factors that affect climate change. The first graph...
Global Sea Surface Currents and TemperatureLesson Planet
1 min 9th - 12th
Get lost at sea amid colorful ocean currents! Learners discover the patterns of movement and temperature in the North Atlantic's currents through a simulation, part of PBS's Weather and Climate series. The resource contains background...
Cloudy Climate Change: How Clouds Affect Earth's TemperatureLesson Planet
7 mins 7th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
While clouds may not make for the most enjoyable weather, they play an important role when it comes to regulating the temperature of the earth. Watch this video and learn how these giant masses of water droplets actually help to cool the...
The Role of the Atmosphere and Greenhouse Effect in Determining the Surface Temperature of the EarthLesson Planet
10th - 11th
Pupils complete research and solve problems that show the factors that determine the temperature of the earth's surface including the effect of greenhouse gases. They look at the relationships between solar energy, atmosphere, and how...
Linkages Between Surface Temperature and Tropospheric OzoneLesson Planet
9th - 12th
Students use data microsets of mean near-surface air temperature and tropospheric ozone residual averages to infer patterns. Students analyze changes in tropospheric ozone and then hypothesize about the consequences of these changes.
Measuring Soil Temperatures at South Penquite FarmLesson Planet
5th - 8th
Students investigate soil temperatures. In this graphing and earth science lesson, students insert temperature probes into different types of soil at varying depths. Students complete a data chart and construct a related graph...
Ocean Currents and Sea Surface TemperatureLesson Planet
8th - 12th
Students use satellite data to explore sea surface temperature. They explore the relationship between the rotation of the Earth, the path of ocean current and air pressure centers. After studying maps of sea surface temperature and ocean...
Ocean Circulation in the North AtlanticLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Swirling and churning, the waters of the North Atlantic play a vital role in Earth's climate! Discover the many factors that produce circulation using a multimedia lesson from PBS's Weather and Climate series for high schoolers. Scholars...
Investigating the Climate System: Energy, A Balancing ActLesson Planet
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...
