In this activity, the GLOBE Kids, on their second visit to Willow Creek, discover why the creek looks different. They learn about making observations, measuring water temperature and speed, and looking for critters in the water. In Activity 1, 'Magnify That', students will be able to identify a magnifying lens and its purpose. They will be able to explain how the same object looks different when using ... Full description.

A learning activity for the Scoop on Soils book in the Elementary GLOBE Series. Each student will make predictions about the properties of various soil samples. Then they will examine several types of soils and record their observations. Next, they will learn about soil profiles and horizons by both examining a soil sample in a jar and by creating a soil profile flip chart. The purpose of the activity ... Full description.

In this activity, the GLOBE Kids are excited to perform a play for the rest of the school, demonstrating what they have learned about the Earth and all of its parts. They hit a glitch when they cannot decide which Earth component is the most important, but end up learning a lot about the Earth, Sun, water, air, soil, and living things, and the way these components are interconnected. In Activity 1: ... Full description.

This chapter walks users through a technique for documenting change in before-and-after sets of satellite images. The technique can be used for any set of time-series images that are spatially registered to show the exact same area at the same scale. In the chapter, users examine three Landsat images of the Pearl River delta in southeastern China. In these images, users observe changes in land use, ... Full description.
