Buoy is it getting warmer?

Buoy is it getting warmer?

Overview

This problem-based learning module is designed to master the Ohio Learning standard of Science in Earth and Space Science number 2, Cycles and Patterns of Earth and the Moon. Thermal-energy transfers in the ocean and the atmosphere contribute to the formation of currents, which influence global climate patterns. Students will be exploring the various factors affecting the climate patterns we experience due to thermal energy. Students will work independently as well as with a partner. The final product is expected to be presented to their peers and teachers.

 

This blended module includes teacher-led instruction, student-led stations, real world data analysis and technology integrated investigations.
