This activity is about groundwater and how an underground aquifer can be affected by actions on the surface that are miles away. Using an aquarium, leaners will construct an interactive groundwater model to demonstrate how water flows through the ground into the atmosphere and back. This activity may also be completed as a demonstration. This is the second of four activities in the "Impact of Climate ... Full description.

This activity is about the processes that have shaped the eastern coastline of the United States. By providing students with model habitats of the Chesapeake Bay watershed made with boxes and clay, learners will observe that all water that falls on a watershed drains into the same large waterway. They will also develop a definition of a watershed. This is the first of three watershed activities in ... Full description.

This activity is about the impact of climate change in aquatic ecosystems. Learners will build two aquatic habitats using soda bottles and other materials and simulate climate change conditions in one of the habitats. After making daily qualitative and quantitative observations over a four-week period, students will be able to describe the effects of climate change on aquatic ecosystems. This activity ...

This activity is about the decline in water level of the Great Lakes. After using different maps to compare the size of different lakes in the world, learners will discuss the positive and negative effects of changing water levels. They will also consider the seemingly contradictory events of decreasing fresh water levels and rising sea levels. Working in groups, learners will construct and explain ... Full description.

This activity involves the use of satellite imagery to derive observations. Using an introductory Landsat classroom activity, learners will compare two images from North Dakota to quantify how much of the land surface that was water in 1997 has been changed to land by 2007. A link to the introductory activity is provided. This is the third of three activities in the "The Impact of Climate Change on ... Full description.

This activity is about sea surface temperatures. After reading background information on Chinook salmon and discussing the impact of climate change on the salmon, learners will engage in a discussion on sea surface temperature, how it is measured and its correlation with the Pacific Decadal Oscillation. They will then graph data provided for the Pacific Decadal Oscillation from 1925 - 2005. Links ... Full description.
