October-Letter to the Community
Hello Everyone, Change is something that happens all around us, every day. Some changes are very slight while others are more pronounced. Where I live in the Northern Hemisphere we are undergoing our annual seasonal change to fall (autumn). This photo of me checking the precipitation amount in my rain gauge was taken two weeks ago. Now the leaves on the trees are bright reds and yellows and I'm checking phenology with my leaf color chart. Soon it will snow and I will measure that as well. Seasons change here and so does my appreciation of the beauty and complexity of the Earth system.  >>

Geting NASA into Richmond City Classrooms
Getting NASA into Classrooms Richmond City Public Schools' students are on their way to collecting and sharing science data with other kids around the world with The Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program. Tuesday, November 4, 2014, Elementary school teachers from across the district will be introduced to one of GLOBE's free educational resources – a series of children's storybooks that introduce Earth system science concepts to students. The storybooks cover science topics that correlate to Next Generation Science Standards. The story plots range from studying soil to studying clouds, and teachers are encouraged to read the story with their students and complete the science activities suggested in the books, which require no special instrumentation. Each teacher will receive the book assigned to his or her grade level along with the complimentary learning activities. Giving the presentation on GLOBE's storybooks are Tina Harte and Sarah Crecelius, GLOBE trainers, and Kristyn Damadeo, Education and Public Outreach specialist, from NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va. NASA is a partner of GLOBE, which is a worldwide hands-on science and education program. "Literacy and science skills complement each other. For example, it's important to teach students about the idea of cause and effect in terms of reading comprehension. In science, we are also looking at cause and effect, just in a different context. In both areas, these storybooks inspire inquiry and investigation," explains Jessica Taylor, GLOBE trainer at NASA's Langley Research Center. The GLOBE storybooks are freely available online in multiple languages, and they are available for print or for digital slideshows.
