How To Do GLOBE under COVID -19
Presenting learning opportunities for those under pandemic restrictions
Dear Teachers, Students, Scientists, Coordinators, and GLOBE friends,
Asia Pacific Regional Office started this page to help you to learn under the new conditions of the COVID-19 crisis. Here we come with an overview of learning opportunities and online resources that GLOBE Program provides for teachers and students who started with "home-schooling". The page will be regularly updated:
From classrooms to homes:
Many of the GLOBE classroom learning activities can be used for students who learn from home now. Check the database and filter out an activity according to the age of students and topic: https://www.globe.gov/do-globe/classroom-ready-activities/learning-activities
Teachers can use GLOBE online modules (e-trainings) to prepare lessons for students on topics such as water pH, soil, mosquitoes, clouds, weather and many more. They are available for free to download as ppt presentations. The modules are grouped under four areas of Biosphere, Atmosphere, Pedosphere (Soils), and Hydrosphere: https://www.globe.gov/get-trained/protocol-etraining
You can't go out? Observe clouds from your Window!
You can still use an amazing Smartphone app called GLOBE Observer to track down clouds and contrails right from your balcony or terrace. You may actually spot less of contrails than ever before - due to the decline in air traffic!
Once you have taken an observation, you will get an email from NASA in a couple of days that compare your observation with an image taken from a satellite.
Since the beginning of the COVID - 19 pandemic as a means to encourage community participants & engaging students to do GLOBE with safety. GLOBE Asia - pacific regional Coordination Office has host webinars for wider participation & community engagement. To know more about the webinars Click here
Students should practice their research skills.
And what about the youngest kids?
Ask their parents to read out a GLOBE Elementary Story Book to them. For example, about kids who investigate what went wrong with the planet Earth climate or about clouds having a different name with Do You Know That Clouds Have Names?. Download all storybooks for free! With each story book, kids can also have fun with easy learning activities, such as Why(not) so blue, a simulation of air pollution by dripping milk into a glass of water.
Activities organized by GLOBE Program Asia - Pacific Region Office for Promoting GLOBE at Home
Eco -Engineering Product from Waste - Activity at Home in response to COVID -19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the world to a standstill with governments enforcing lockdowns to ensure their citizens stay at home and stay safe.
With schools temporarily shut down and outdoor activities prohibited, The GLOBE Program can offer a solution. Several activities under GLOBE anchored around STEM and can keep children engaged, entertained, and also help them learn a thing or two.
Although STEM may seem complicated for many parents, the activity listed below has been put together to ensure that they find it easy to guide their children. Apart from that, there are various GLOBE resources for younger students which are mentioned above.
