Earth As a System Protocol Instructions
Students will use a GLOBE Plant Color Guide to monitor the change in color of selected leaves of trees, shrubs or grasses.
Biosphere, Green-Up / Green-Down Protocol Instructions
My students recorded a video explaining their Green-Down measurements this fall. It was a great way for them to review why we make these observations and share them with GLOBE.
Biosphere
Students participate in a preparatory activity that will help them identify green-up progression in their local plants and this activity also introduces the idea of spatial scale related to plant observations.
Biosphere, Green-Up / Green-Down Learning Activities
Students will monitor the budburst and growth of leaves of selected trees, shrubs or grasses.
Biosphere, Green-Up / Green-Down Protocol Instructions
Earth As a System Protocol Instructions
Students measure their height, arm span, and foot length to show how living organism’s parts are related to the whole. Students use this concept to understand how circumference of trees can be used to estimate biomass.

Modeling Activities
Computer models (at varying levels of complexity) predict the change in biomass and carbon storage or size of carbon pools and fluxes over time, and give students the opportunity to use an important scientific tool.
