Air Temperature Investigations Activity

Activity: Air Temperature Investigations  (Link to original activity.)

Description: This activity focuses on the daily energy cycles of the earth from having students analyze data. One location is chosen for students to understand the fluctuation of temperature throughout a 24-hour period. Temperature is then compared to incoming solar radiation from the sun throughout the same time period and students will be able to form a relationship between the two observations.

Relationships to topics: Temperature, Radiation, Earth's Energy Balance
