Organization:NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)
Summary:In this activity, students will use global temperature data to create models and compare short-term trends to long-term trends. They will then determine whether global temperature is rising based on the data. This activity is aligned to education standards for fifth grade and high school grade bands. As such, we have provided two sets of procedures, one for grade five and one fir high school. Other variations for each grade band are indicated throughout the activity.
