To determine if data values are reasonable, students need to understand the units of measurement and be able to estimate the expected range of values in data. This activity has groups of students collecting and recording data, changing some of the numbers, and challenging each other to identify values that are unreasonable for the data set. Students practice the skills of estimation and recognition ... Full description.

In this introductory climate change investigation, students will set up at least one temperature monitoring station at the school and take daily minimum and maximum temperature readings. These local average temperatures can be compared to the global average temperatures for the period of 1854 to 1990 found in the appendix, and compare their data with datasets used by scientists that detect global ...

In this lesson, students hypothesize what types of clouds they believe will create the most precipitation (rainfall) over Nashville, TN. 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. Students use the Live Access ... Full description.
