Earth : Climate Change and The Global Ocean
Grade: 3 - 12
Learn how climate change not only affects us, but also alters something as vast, deep and mysterious as our oceans. With the help of satellites and high-tech sensors, scientists gather data on ocean surface temperature, ocean winds, sea level, circulation, and even marine life. It helps us gain valuable insights into the impacts of climate change on oceans.

Earth : Water, Water Everywhere!
Grade: 3 - 12
Water is all around us, and it is critically important to nearly every natural process on Earth. This lesson explains what the water cycle is and how important it is to life on Earth.

Earth : Keeping Up With Carbon
Grade: 3 - 12
Carbon is all around us. This unique atom is the basic building block of life, and its compounds form solids, liquids, or gases. Carbon helps form the bodies of living organisms; it dissolves in the ocean; mixes in the atmosphere; and can be stored in the crust of the planet. Understanding how the carbon cycle is changing is key to understanding Earth's changing climate.
