National Geographic Education Add Add Artifact 12 Artifact 10 Extreme Weather on Earth and Other Planets Room 3 National Geographic Education has created this interactive module to study extreme weather patterns, both on earth and on other planets. It is divided into five activities covering 180 minutes. Topics cover, 1) Extreme Weather on Our Planet, 2) Extreme Weather on Other Planets, 3) Measuring Weather with Tools, 4) Discover Space Probes, and 5) Design Your Own Space Probe. This module meets ISTE NETS-S Standard 1c – Creativity and Innovation - Use models and simulations to explore complex systems and issues.Museum Screen ShotEntrance

  5. 5. Discover Space Probes Activity #4Students watch a video about space probesand discuss the function of space probes.They use a photo gallery to compare andcontrast different structures and equipmentof probes, and make connections betweenthe different structures and purposes ofspace probes. Then students use aninteractive diagram of the Cassini spaceprobe to imagine what instruments theymight include on a probe of their owndesign.

  6. 6. Extreme Weather on Our Planet Activity #1Students use prior knowledge, a photogallery, and a video to discuss what theyalready know about extreme weather onEarth and brainstorm a list of weather-related words. Then they organize theinformation they learned about weatherevents and conditions present for each type Image acquired at:of weather event, and compare and contrast http://education.nationalgeographic.com/education/lesson/extreme- weather-earth-other-planets/?ar_a=1weather events and conditions.

  7. 7. Extreme Weather on Other Planets Activity #2Students compare ways of investigatingweather on Earth and on other planets inour solar system. They use a video todiscuss which different types of weatherinformation might help us understand whatthe environments are like on each planet.Then students compare and contrast Image acquired at:weather conditions for planets in our solar http://education.nationalgeographic.com/education/lesson/extreme- weather-earth-other-planets/?ar_a=1system.

  8. 8. Measuring Weather With Tools Activity #3Students use prior knowledge to brainstorminstruments scientists use to measureweather. They use a photo gallery toidentify what weather conditions eachinstrument measures. Then students play agame to match illustrations of instrumentsthat measure weather with descriptions of Image acquired at:each instrument. http://education.nationalgeographic.com/education/lesson/extreme- weather-earth-other-planets/?ar_a=1 Return to Room
  9. 9. SOHO Space ProbeThe primary scientific aims of the Solar andHeliospheric Observatory mission (SOHO) areto investigate (1) the physical processes thatform and heat the Sun’s Corona, maintain it andgive rise to the expanding solar wind, and (2)the interior structure of the Sun. The spacecraftwas launched aboard an Atlas 2-AS rocket onDecember 12, 1995, from Cape Canaveral,Florida.http://www.solarviews.com/eng/soho.htm Return to Room

  11. 11. Design Your Own Space Probe Activity #5:Students imagine they are scientists orengineers designing a new space probe toexplore our solar system. They choose aplanet, review its weather factors, and use arubric to gather information, make a plan,modify and/or test their plan, and createtheir design. Students conduct peerevaluation and revise, publish, and present Image acquired at:their designs. http://www.google.com/imgres? imgurl=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/1 9/Mars_Climate_Orbiter_2.jpg/290px- Mars_Climate_Orbiter_2.jpg&imgrefurl=http://en.wikipedia.org/wi Return to Room ki/Mars_Climate_Orbiter&h=264&w=290&sz=21&tbnid=uA5VW 3JnK8m1- M:&tbnh=93&tbnw=102&zoom=1&usg=__1dm2eV8PFfgL29cJ9b 4uIlUgBPU=&docid=TLpQmRgEk0mWbM&hl=en&sa=X&ei=mf snUa7WDKTA2AWxsoHwDA&ved=0CEcQ9QEwAw&dur=606
