With our predictably unpredictable climate in recent years, NOVA’s amazing, new documentary “Earth from Space,” offers engaging and relevant material to adapt for the classroom with photos, computer models, video and other data on subjects such as how a weather or geological event on one side of our globe might affect life on the other side.
WGBY airs the film on February 13 from 9:00pm -11:00pm, after which you can also view it at NOVA’s website where you’ll find related links. At the NOVA beta site there are literally hundreds of resources on subjects like Planet Earth and Space and Flight, some of which are designed specifically for teachers. Or just follow the link to NOVA Education to search your own topics. For example, on the subject of weather, you’ll find Climate Change and Sandy, What Does the Earth Sound Like? and Fastest Glacier.
