This activity is about the discovery of water ice on Mars. Learners will record and graph temperature data and use a model of an ice-rich and ice-free surface on Mars to examine how ice content in the martian soil would impact the temperature of a Mars microbe after impact. A student information sheet introducing the subject of ice and the search for water on Mars is provided. The activity requires ... Full description.

The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) has made a select set of images viewable through the popular interactive desktop application, Google Earth. Users can choose from a set of data-based images (KMZ and KML files) and display them on a virtual globe. Featured datasets include changes in glaciers, the Larsen B ice shelf, and Arctic sea ice extent from 1979-2006, breakup of the Larsen B ice ... Full description.

This lesson will connect the idea of the tilt and orbit of the earth (changing of seasons) with monthly changes in snow/ice. Students will evaluate changes in the snow/ice cover from January 2008 to June 2008 and compare to the tilt of the Earth and position in orbit (seasonal change) using monthly Snow/Ice Data from January 2008 to June 2008 from MyNASAData website.

This site contains information about the North Cascades glaciers and the extent of the ice sheet and glaciers during the Pleistocene. Over the past 100 years a number of glaciers have disappeared from the mountain cirques of North Cascades National Park. Scientists want to know the status of the remaining glaciers. Are they gaining mass or losing it over the years? The results from these glacial studies ... Full description.

In this lab activity, students explore how organisms are able to survive the extreme environmental conditions found in the Polar regions. Students will design experiments using Tardigrades and rotifers to expand their knowledge and understanding of normal behavior followed by experiments to explore anhydrobiosis. Full description.

In this activity, air with increased concentrations of carbon dioxide is produced and the rate of heat loss of that air is compared to today's normal air. This is used to help demonstrate the environmental and economic effects of increased carbon dioxide (CO2) content in the atmosphere. It tests the claim that the Earth's climate is warming due to changes in the relative concentration of gases in ... Full description.

In this activity, students construct a model that will allow them to experiment with thermal convection, illustrating how thermal energy can generate a flowing motion in a fluid. The thermal convection in this model is similar to the convection that is inferred for the Earth's mantle and can produce horizontal flow that can cause or is related to plate motions. Students will investigate the viscosity ... Full description.

The Atlas of the Cryosphere allows visitors to explore and dynamically map the Earth's frozen regions. Viewed from a polar perspective, the available scenes include snow cover, sea ice extent and concentration, glaciers, permafrost, and other critical components of the Earth's cryosphere. Users can zoom in to a specific region on the Earth and overlay country borders, major cities, and other geographic ... Full description.
