The GLOBE U.S. Coordination Office is working in partnership with the USDA Forest Service to show connections between Natural Inquirer readers for students and GLOBE protocols, learning activities, and storybooks. The following items demonstrate how these materials can be used together in a classroom activity. More products will be added soon. Find details on the crosswalk project.

  • Carbon Cycle by Veshell Lewis, PhD, a Biology Teacher at Dacula High School and Adjunct Biology Instructor at Georgia State University
  • Photosynthesis by Margaret Gregory, Science Writer for USDA Forest Service
  • Water Quality by Pam Evans, Middle and High School Science Teacher

NGSS, State Education Standards and GLOBE Connections

U.S. GLOBE Partners have mapped GLOBE protocols and learning activities to their specific state, and in some cases city, standards. Providing these standards helps educators implement GLOBE into their curricula. *NOTE* Many of the documents on this page reference older state standards.
