The Darby Creek watershed encompasses an area of approximately 550 square miles in central Ohio. The Big and Little Darby Creeks are well known for their vast diversity and abundance of aquatic and terrestrial plants and animals. They are home to eighty-six species of fish, five of which are endangered. Forty-one species of freshwater mollusks live in these waters, eight of which are on the Ohio endangered ...

In this lesson, students will play the role of a member of an International Team of Marine Biologists tasked with predicting and monitoring possible harmful algae blooms. They will evaluate changes in the ocean's chlorophyll counts from 1997-2007 using data sets from MyNASAData website, draw conclusions about how the chlorophyll-a levels in the ocean may effect its ecological characteristics and infer ...

In this lesson, students will investigate the relationship between atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and chlorophyll-a measurements in a local watershed. They will compare two data sets to find correlations and explain the importance of carbon dioxide and photosynthetic plants in the carbon cycle. At the end of the lesson, students will be able to relate global climate change to local effects. Full description.

Students will use NASA satellite data to study temperature and snow-ice coverage in the South Beaufort Sea, Alaska. The data can be used to correlate with USGS ground tracking of polar bears, and to relate this to global change, sea ice changes, and polar bear migration. The data can be used to draw conclusions surrounding any migration patterns in the region. Full description.

This activity demonstrates how to import data from the Internet and make EXCEL graphs. The instructions included were provided by a classroom teacher who used these instructions with high school students. Following detailed, illustrated instructions, students will complete the activity by working with data from two cities: Little Rock, Arkansas and Miami, Florida. Since temperature generally decreases ... Full description.

MY NASA DATA (Mentoring and inquirY using NASA Data) is an effort to develop microsets of Earth science data that are interesting and useful to the K-12 and citizen scientist communities. The datasets can be used with existing curriculum and enable students to practice math skills using real measurements of Earth system variables and processes. The lesson plans consist of units created by NASA educators ... Full description.
