Scientists have studied the physical properties of clouds and have developed instruments onboard satellites to characterize the types of clouds they see below. Some satellites have instruments that allow them to measure rainfall as well. For this lesson, students will hypothesize what types of clouds they believe will create the most precipitation (rainfall) over Nashville, TN. Students use the Live ... Full description.

This activity helps students to understand the many roles that polar sea ice plays in the systems that maintain our planet, by first helping them to understand the process of the formation of ice in oceanic regimes. Students will use an inquiry based lab experience relating salt content to the ability of water to freeze in order to begin this study. Specifically, they will design an experiment to ...

This guide provides instructions for educators on how to use sea ice data in the classroom. The data, from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), describe sea ice concentration and extent of coverage. Scientists use it to monitor changes in the concentration and coverage of ice in polar regions and to compare changes over time, such as loss of extent. Topics include temporal trends in sea ...
