MY NASA DATA: SCIENTIST TRACKING NETWORK – GRADES 8-9
This series of lessons is designed to answer the question, “How can we use data from NASA satellites to pinpoint a geographic location?” Students participate in a problem-based unit to investigate the relationships among three data sets located on the MY NASA DATA website. They will create products that discuss the relationship of surface irradiance to season and surface temperature. They will also compare total column ozone levels recorded at different latitudes.
Visit the My NASA Data website to access these and many other lesson plans using NASA data.
