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.

Are You Kyoto Cool?
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will use past year's data to determine their per person CO2 production within their household. Students will then devise ways for decreasing their production. *CO2 is a greenhouse gas *Burning fossil fuels produces CO2 *Students can mak

Tiny Bubbles
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
CO2 gas is a dense gas and will displace oxygen from a tank. Air bubbles blown into the tank of CO2 gas will float on top of the gas. *Gases behave like a fluid *Characteristics of CO2 gas *Structure of matter

What's The Matter With Air?
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Use the concepts of density and heat energy to explain observations of weather patterns, seasonal changes, and the movements of Earth's plates.

The Effect Of Bedrock On Acid Rain
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students test the pH of samples of "acid rain" before and after different kinds of rock are placed in them. Students locate these rocks in NYS and determine the landscape regions most adversely affected by acid precipitation.

What's So New About Newspaper?
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will explore how newspaper behaves during different tests. They will determine how the internal structure (grain) of the paper will influence its behavior.

Should We Dam The Nanticoke
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
You'll be investigating what would occur if a dam were built along the Nanticoke Creek and what would be some of the positive and negative impacts this dam would have on individuals or towns.
