Looking for ways to grab your student’s attention with real world issues using current scientific research, data, and visualizations in a way that allows them to become active participants in both learning and in personally addressing an issue? EarthLabs, a set of eight free on-line modules that focus on earth sciences, illustrate sequences for learning science concepts through a combination of computer based data analysis activities and more traditional hands-on experiments. Students use satellite imagery, numerical data, and computer visualization software to explore Earth system processes. They are written for high school but Jim has easily adapted them for middle school. Receive an overview of all eight (Climate and the Carbon Cycle, Climate and the Biosphere, Climate and the Cryosphere, Coral, Drought, Earth Systems Science, Fisheries, Hurricanes) and experience a few selected activities yourself.
