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.

The exercises presented in this paper are part of a "minds on" rather than a "hands on" approach. They are intended to complement "hands on" activities and introduce students to another aspect of scientific inquiry. The exercises require students to analyze large sets of real data, to evaluate the data critically, to observe patterns and anomalies, to make inferences and predictions based on the data, ...

In this activity, students will study data from satellite temperature images and underwater sensors (CTDs) to look for evidence of an upwelling off the coast of New Jersey. Based on their new knowledge, they will use real-time ocean data from the Coastal Ocean Observatory Laboratory (COOLroom) to create their own ocean weather forecast for the local newspaper. Students will discover that using the ... Full description.

In this lesson, students will investigate the South Atlantic Bight to discover what it is and how was it formed. As they investigate the Bight, students will sequence and model the events leading to the formation of the southeastern coast of the United States, examine what forces have changed the structure of this area over geologic time, predict what changes are yet to occur and how these changes ...

In this activity, students will use Moon and tide data from the internet to construct charts and answer questions about the patterns they see. They will be reminded that the Moon has something to do with ocean tides and will discover what the connections are. They will also discover when tides, moonrise and moonset, and phases of the Moon occur. Full description.

In this activity students design and execute an experiment through which they will learn the distinctions between density, buoyancy, and volume. Students are asked to imagine a staysail schooner loaded with mid-ocean ridge basalt as it floats in a swimming pool in Woods Hole. They must determine what will happen to the water level if all the basalt is dumped over the side into the pool. Posing an ... Full description.
