My NASA Data Lesson Plans
MY NASA DATA (Mentoring and inquirY using NASA Data) is an effort to develop microsets of Earth science data that are interesting and useful to the K-12 and citizen scientist communities. The datasets can be used with existing curriculum and enable students to practice math skills using real measurements of Earth system variables and processes. The lesson plans consist of units created by NASA educators and contributing teachers who have incorporated Earth science microsets and the various computer-based tools, featured on the Website, into their classrooms. Subjects covered by the lesson plans include; surface types on the Earth, seasons, clouds, the Earth's energy budget, stratospheric ozone, snow cover, and measuring basic weather variables. Intended grade levels are clearly indicated for each lesson.
