The purpose of this lesson is to examine the role of technology in identifying and tracking hurricanes. It is the second in a two-part series on the science of hurricanes and the kinds of technology being used to identify and track them. Students broaden their study by exploring how technology and science are used today to identify, measure, and track powerful tropical storms to better warn and secure ... Full description.

At this site, students learn about the history of Earth imaging and the Landsat satellite program. They develop interpretation skills as they play a game that involves inferring the subjects of various Landsat images. This lesson will help students to be able to show understanding of the history and development of Earth sensing, describe Landsat and its role in modern Earth imaging, and use knowledge ...

This activity will help students to understand and explain where drinking water comes from and where wastewater goes once it leaves the home, as well as how the water we use fits into the water cycle. It is based on a story that describes the journey of a water drop from the well to the septic leaching field of a rural system. In a conversation with a little girl, the drop also describes a journey ... Full description.

These activities allow students to explore many different ways to measure and record time. The most important points are that almost any regular, predictable phenomenon can be used to record the passage of time and orderly patterns of these phenomena help to construct useful frames of reference from which calendars evolved and are still evolving. In addition, any proposed calendar must be compatible ... Full description.

This experiment will help students to understand the role of plants in filtering the water moving through a watershed. Students will discover that soil and plants have something of a dual role in this process and, depending on whether materials are dissolved or suspended in the water, soils and plant roots can remove some or all of this material as the water moves down through soil. They also learn ... Full description.

In this lab, students will learn how to take field notes as scientists do, using a simulated sediment core, constructed with edible items. Students will use metric notations to mark changes in the sediments, objects such as fossils and glacial pebbles in the core sample, and will select a spot to sample. They will use a small round cookie cutter to obtain a cylindrical sample of the core. The activity ... Full description.
