In this problem-based learning activity, students help the Forest Service make a decision: the next time there's a natural fire in Yellowstone National Park, should they try to put it out or let it burn? They perform an Earth system science analysis to predict the results under the existing policy and to support any recommendations you would make to revise the policy. This activity is part of Exploring ... Full description.

This field activity introduces students to the concept of a system. Students identify the components, inputs and outputs of the local system at a range of biometry study sites, as well as the boundaries of their investigations at these sites in terms of space and time. Collected data from the different sites are analyzed and compared. The activity includes a student worksheet and data charts. Equipment ... Full description.

Students will compare aerial photos of their area from the past with current photos, noting differences and then conducting ground truth investigations to determine what happened. Finally, students will use the information they gather about past changes to make predictions about the future, and consider how past choices have impacted their current environment and how their own choices now will impact ...

In this investigation students explore how resolution affects information content on remotely sensed images, relate remote sensor resolution (pixel size) to information content, and gain an understanding of the information content of different kinds of remote sensing imagery. Students examine aerial or satellite images of the area around their school,interpret remotely sense images, and verify them ... Full description.

In this activity, students explore how maps and models are used to represent the landscape. Students will recreate their school grounds in a sandbox, clay, or a cardboard model. They will then photograph or videotape their model from above and from the sides. Materials needed depend on the modeling method selected, a camera, and an aerial photograph containing the school. This activity is part of ... Full description.

Students will first try to imagine what their school and neighborhood look like from ?A Bird?s Eye View? and draw a detailed picture. They will follow this with a study of an aerial photo of their town. Materials required for this activity include a remotely-sensed image that includes the local community, and any other map representations of the region. This activity is part of the Ground Truth Studies ... Full description.

Students examine a series of remotely-sensed images of the US, scaling from the continent to San Francisco, and distinguish the concepts of scale and resolution. At greater resolution, students are able to identify different land classes on the map, using the color key for false color images. This lesson gives students first-hand experience in seeing how reality is represented by maps and models, ... Full description.
