This site provides nationwide real-time stream flow data from the United States Geologic Survey (USGS). These data are typically recorded at 15-60 minute intervals, stored onsite, and then transmitted to USGS offices every 4 hours. Recording and transmission times may be more frequent during critical events. Data from real-time sites are relayed to USGS offices via satellite, telephone, and/or radio ... Full description.

The purpose of this resource is to introduce students to the concept that sometimes there is no one "right" answer to a question or measurement. Students learn to be careful when searching for a right answer to questions such as 'What time is it?' by comparing multiple measurements of the time of day. Students gain an intuitive understanding of the characteristics of imperfect measurements. Using ... Full description.

Remote sensing offers three perspectives on human or physical features: aerial (birds-eye), oblique (angled) and ground-level. Sketching a classroom object from each of the three perspectives provides students with the foundation to then complete several activities. Students will match remotely sensed images and photos of historical sites to their locations. Then, assuming the role of geoarchaeologists, ... Full description.
