Earth History Tours, Inc
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will use charts and internet resources to gain an understanding of a specific time period. Students are time travel agents creating an advertisement for their geologic time period.

Time Travellers: Adventure To The Archaean
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will study fossil evidence of life on Earth from the PreCambrian through the Cenozoic. Specifically, and based on information derived from a web site on Archaean life and conditions, students will write an illustrated report.

Travel Past Inc.
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will study a set of 8 fossils and determine their time-lines and specific ages. They will also consider the bedrock and glacial history of the area and weave a coherent story for the finding of the set of fossils.

White Plains MetARs
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students examine a 'one week' MetAR to find trends in temperature and pressure over the course of one week in October.

Weather Maps In Motion
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
How do we interpret current weather maps? Students will observe current weather map loop animations. They will observe the movement of fronts and air masses. They will analyze a specific weather station model.

How's The Air Up There
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
How does the atmosphere change with altitude? Students will obtain current upper air radiosonde soundings from the web. They will generate graphs and analyze them.

Coastal And Continental Temperature Ranges
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Using climographs students plot locations using latitude and longitude, calculate annual temperature ranges, and relate unequal rates of heating and cooling to climate variations. Students construct and analyze climographs for two NYS locations.

Hurricane Ivan
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students examine, interpret, and map several days of NOAA hurricane advisories.

Climate Controls
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Climate is an area's average atmospheric energy (in terms of temperature and precipitation). The energy comes from the sun and water vapor. Students determine what causes different climates in different areas of the world.
