NOAA’s ‘Data in the Classroom’, is a set of classroom/online activities based upon real time ocean data, to establish the potential link between the changes in oceans and marine life caused by climate change.
With the help of this interactive platform students use real-time ocean data to explore online and classroom-ready curriculum activities with a scaled approach to learning and easy-to-use data exploration tools.
Students will use live maps and visualizations based upon real time data to determine the locations and observations. Further, they will discuss and explore the potential impact of climate change and the resulting change in sea level, El Nino, Coral Reefs, water quality, and ocean acidification with the help of various classroom/online activities.
