1A- Flashlights on Earth
This investigation will explore how the angle of the Earth’s surface impacts the amount of solar radiation received in a given area.
1B- Biome Sorting
This activity explores Earth’s diverse ecological biomes and how they can be affected by climate change.
1C- Carbon Journey
Take an atom of carbon on a ‘journey’ through the carbon cycle by playing the carbon journey game.
1D- Earth’s Albedo
Albedo is measured using maps, data tables and a shaker filled with popcorn kernels. Estimate the Earth’s energy budget by calculating the absorbed radiation of various Earth’s surfaces.
1E- Sea Ice Cycles
Visually explore, animate, and measure changing sea ice extent in the Arctic using a flip book and satellite images of the North Pole.
