Teaching Boxes are collections of classroom-ready and standards-aligned activities, content, and multimedia that build student understanding of science, technology, engineering, and math.
Experience weather outside or investigate weather through data, graphs and maps. These activities range from simple explorations of snow, to more through analysis of climate change and weather.
CLIMATE CHANGE ACTIVITIES
From activities about evidence of climate change, to inquiries into current and future impacts, and explorations of the role of energy use in current climate warming.
SUN-EARTH CONNECTION ACTIVITIES
Solar energy is the reason weather changes and the reason that Earth isn’t frozen. These activities explore energy, albedo, light, and color.
ATMOSPHERE AND CHEMISTRY ACTIVITIES
Have your students explore how the atmosphere changes with altitude, and how nitrogen and carbon based greenhouse gases affect the chemistry of the atmosphere.
