Experiments Below are interactive experiments that can be used to teach all ages about the art and science of space-based remote sensing. The experiments focus on how NASA uses remote sensing to study how and why the Earth changes. Mission: Biomes The following two activities are designed for teachers to use in classrooms as supplementary, interdisciplinary units. Great Graph Match Geo Grapher needs your help to match temperature and precipitation graphs for different locations to the biomes where they belong To Plant or Not to Plant? Travel with Bill Botanist on an expedition to each of the world’s biomes. Citizen Science The Citizens and Remote Sensing Observation Network (CARSON) is designed to show citizen scientists how to explore satellite data to make wide-scale environmental observations. Air Quality Track visibility from the ground, and then use satellite images to identify pollution coming into your region from other places. Water Quality Nitrogen is a common pollutant found in streams.
KS2 Science Finding out how you move and grow. Can you label the human skeleton? When you've finished move onto the animal skeletons. Do you know which groups living things belong to? Magnets have north poles and south poles. What does a year look like in space? The application consists of two sorting activities and one writing frame to support work towards the end of the unit. Solid, liquid and gas are called the three states of matter. Materials have different properties that make them useful for different jobs. Pupils can research information about teeth types, tooth structure and tooth decay. Use an information panel where pupils can research details about food groups and a balanced plate approach to a healthy diet.Balanced Plate lesson outline An information panel to explains the terms used in, and concepts behind, food chains. This is a KS2 science resource designed to support QCA unit 4B habitats where children should use a simple key to identify organisms.
Permaculture With its system of applied education, research and citizen- led design permaculture has grown a popular web of global networks and developed into a global social movement. The term permaculture was developed and coined by David Holmgren, then a graduate student at the Tasmanian College of Advanced Education's Department of Environmental Design, and Bill Mollison, senior lecturer in Environmental Psychology at University of Tasmania, in 1978.  The word permaculture originally referred to "permanent agriculture", but was expanded to stand also for "permanent culture", as it was understood that social aspects were integral to a truly sustainable system as inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka’s natural farming philosophy. It has many branches that include, but are not limited to, ecological design, ecological engineering, regenerative design, environmental design, and construction. History Several individuals revolutionized the branch of permaculture. In Australian P.A.
