Using global scale maps of winds and ocean currents students predict what region(s) in other parts of the world might be affected by their region.
Using data about the components of the Earth system at the global scale, students discuss how the components interact to form the Earth system as a whole and use the water cycle to explore this in more detail.
Students visit the study site, observe the different components of the Earth system and predict how they are connected to and affect each other.
Students, either individually or in small groups, use their knowledge of their study site develop a diagram that illustrates the most important connections between the different components of the Earth system.
Students use GLOBE student data to explore, understand, and communicate the connections between the components of the Earth system exist at the study site they are investigating.
Students compare and contrast the diagrams of their study site developed by individuals or small groups, and develop a class diagram of their study site that best communicates the most important connections between the components of the Earth system that exist there.
Students compare and contrast diagram of their study site with a diagram developed for a region that is biogeographically different than their own.
