Bioprospecting for cellulose-degrading microbes

This is a long-term inquiry activity in which students investigate locations they believe harbor cellulose-digesting microbes, collect samples, isolate them on selective media, and screen them for ...

Analyzing the Data: It's time to tell the story about Buds, Leaves and Global Warming

In this activity, students explore how, in New England, the timing of color change and leaf drop of deciduous trees is changing.

Now you Sea Ice, Now you Don't: Penguin Communities Shift on the Antarctic Peninsula

In this activity, students investigate the shifting of three penguin communities in response to climate change.

March of the Polar Bears: Global Change, Sea Ice, and Wildlife Migration

Changes Ahoof: Could Climate Change Affect Arctic Caribou?

Students run a simplified computer model to explore how climate conditions can affect caribou, the most abundant grazing animal in the Arctic.

Temperature and precipitation as limiting factors in ecosystems

This classroom activity is aimed at an understanding of different ecosystems by understanding the influence of temperature and precipitation. Students correlate graphs of vegetation vigor with those ...

Climate History from Deep Sea Sediments

This activity focuses on reconstructing the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) as an example of a relatively abrupt global warming period. Students access Integrated Ocean Drilling Program ...

A Fossil Thermometer

In this activity, students calculate temperatures during a time in the geologic record when rapid warming occurred using a well known method called 'leaf-margin analysis.' Students ...

Off Base - Acidity of oceans

This lesson guides a student inquiry into properties of the ocean's carbonate buffer system, and how changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels may affect ocean pH and biological organisms ...

Melting Sea Ice

This activity uses a mix of multimedia resources and hands-on activities to support a storyline of investigation into melting sea ice. The lesson begins with a group viewing of a video designed to ...
