Educators in Grades K-12
The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.
Explore the NASA GLOBE Program that investigates the Importance of Soil and Water. The program promotes field experiences for grades K-12. Students collect data on soil permeability to find evidence to answer important flooding and drought questions. Students will exercise their scientific skills of observation and inference to make deductions to identify the cause of landslides and erosion. The NASA GLOBE activities promote problem solving, communication skills and teamwork while engaging the students in problem based learning that is both fun and relevant to their everyday lives. Teacher implementation guides, storybooks, activities and resources are integrated in this program.
