 My NASA Data Lesson Plan: Seasons and Cloud Cover: Are They Related? This lesson plan uses NASA satellite data to correlate cloud cover over Africa to the solar declination. The four seasons on Earth have a scientific basis. The earth is tilted 23.5 degrees from vertical. This tilt and the Earth's orbit around the sun are the reasons for the seasons. Earth's tilt and orbital position cause differing angles at which the sun's rays hit the surface of the Earth. As... http://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/lesson-plans/50-minute-lesso...
 Dynamic Digital Maps A Dynamic Digital Map (DDM) is a stand-alone program that displays and links maps, images, movies, data and text, such as map explanations and field trip guides. DDMs appear as thematic maps containing camera icons and map symbols that link images, movies and text or analytical data related to the mapped locations. DDM content, and access to it, is summarized by a searchable list of images, maps,... http://ddm.geo.umass.edu/index.html
 Collecting Weather Data and Keeping a Weather Log In this lesson, students make daily observations of temperature, sky conditions, wind speed and direction, and precipitation type and amount, and record their observations in a log book. They will also compare their observations to those from online sources and analyze their data for class discussion. Follow-up and extension activities are also included. http://ciese.org/curriculum/weatherproj/Introductory_Activit...
 My NASA Data Lesson Plan: Using Imported Data in Excel: Plot Atmospheric Temperature This user-contributed tutorial provides detailed instructions on how to make Excel graphs of data that is imported from the Internet. The tutorial contains sample screen images to assist in performing each step. The tutorial includes importing a second set of data and adding it as another series on the original graph. The tutorial includes questions to be answered based on the atmospheric lapse... https://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/docs/L1_Excel_Starkins.doc
 MY NASA DATA Contributed Lesson 13: Does Humidity Affect Cloud Formation? In this lesson, students download cloud coverage and surface data from the NASA CERES S-COOL website student observation database, then use the Excel spreadsheet program to develop plots of the data. Students explore the relationship between cloud coverage and humidity for low-, mid-, and high-level clouds. The lesson provides detailed procedure, related links and sample graphs, follow-up... https://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/lesson-plans/?page_id=474?&...
