This is an engineering design challenge activity. Learners will use balloons to investigate how a multi-stage rocket, like that used to launch the Interstellar Boundary Explorer, or IBEX, spacecraft, can propel a satellite to a specific orbit. Learners will construct a two-stage balloon rocket that will be required to reach a particular location on the balloon track, simulating the proper orbit around ... Full description.

This is a set of four activities about spacecraft design. Learners will use the information learned in previous lessons, combined with their own creativity and problem-solving skills, to design and test a parachuting probe that will withstand a fall from a high point, land intact, be able to descend slowly, float in liquid, and cost the least to launch into space. Includes a glossary, information ... Full description.

The activities contained in this lesson are designed to introduce students to the basic characteristics of satellite images and their scientific importance. Students will discover how images are derived from satellite signals by creating an image based on "signals" sent by the teacher, use two overlapping images to generate a single mosaic image, and interpret satellite images of a hurricane, flood ...

Color is an important tool used in studying and interpreting satellite images. In this set of activities, students will make a color map of the global biosphere, distinguish between and learn the importance of true colors and false colors on satellite images, and speculate on how geographers and scientists might use false color images to study Earth's surface. The URL opens to the investigation directory, ... Full description.

Students will complete several activities in which they will describe, draw, examine and explore paths. Activities range from describing, drawing and exploring local paths (roads/sidewalks to school, hiking trails, trails in the local school environment, etc.) to comparing and contrasting larger-scale paths (streets, bridges, runways, rivers) on maps and in satellite images of three major world cities. ...

Using both literature (a book featuring a path, such as Little Red Riding Hood) and satellite images, students will identify paths, observe and analyze them from different altitudes, and distinguish natural paths from those made by humans. Students will learn how images can inform the building, use and maintenance of paths. The URL opens to the investigation directory, with links to teacher and student ... Full description.

Photos and images taken from the space shuttle are used to show unusual paths, such as those created by smoke, camel tracks, lava flows, and river deltas. After observing and discussing the images, students will record their observations, and draw conclusions about the origin and nature of the paths. Additionally, students are introduced to one-way (rivers, jet stream) and two-way (roads, bird flyways) ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
This investigation uses three sources of information - images from space, a relief map, and a road map - to analyze the spatial distribution of human settlements. Students will use a nighttime image of the northeastern U.S. to reinforce spatial concepts, put together an 8-piece puzzle of the night lights of the entire U.S. to answer questions on spatial distribution, and use a topographic map of an ...
