This guide provides an example sequence for implementing Elementary GLOBE Aerosols over 5 sessions, and includes NGSS alignment.
Atmosphere Learning Progressions developed for GLOBE Mission Earth to align GLOBE Atmosphere Protocols, GLOBE Learning Activities, and NASA resources with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

GLOBE 21CCLC Afterschool Module: Clouds and Earth's Energy Budget
In 2016, the NASA Langley team developed a GLOBE afterschool program for the US Department of Education's 21st Century Community Learning Centers program. The program was designed to be implemented in out of school time settings with 5-8 grade students. Students use GLOBE to measure cloud and surface temperature data, and analyze collected data to determine how clouds impact Earth's energy systems. Facilitator and Student Guides, along with a project intro video are available at: https://y4y.ed.gov/stemchallenge/nasa/atmospheric-science-investigation/1729.
With the support of the CALIPSO mission, NASA Langley has created a GLOBE Instrument Check-out Program for GLOBE Certified Teachers. Please contact us if you would like more information about a short-term equipment loan.
