Comment on this resource
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.

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.

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.

This instructor guide provides background material for a two-part activity in which students observe convective currents in water and learn that air can behave as as a fluid. Students will understand that temperature changes can cause density changes in water, learn that the same phenomenon happens in air, and understand that temperature-driven density changes will produce currents in a fluid medium. ...

This series of activities is designed to show students how a large scale planetary process, the transport of heat over the surface of the Earth, operates and has operated over time. The activities include how energy is absorbed by the Earth from the Sun, how and why this energy is distributed over the earth's surface, what controls energy distribution, how we can track the energy distributing process ...
