Using satellite images, 5th and 6th grade students in a Laramie (WY) School learn about human impact on environment

With the help of satellite images fifth and sixth grade students at Mr. Tim Blum’s geography class (photo below) at the UW Lab School got a birds-eye view of how humans have impacted or modified their environments (31 January 2011).  Images acquired by satellites decades apart showed cleared forests, irrigated crop fields in the middle of the deserts, altered landscapes (new roads and water bodies), and urban growth.

As part of the Earth Observation Day (EOD) activities, WyomingView coordinator Ramesh Sivanpillai described the utility of images acquired by satellites are useful for monitoring changes on earth’s surface.   For example, Landsat images acquired in 2000 (bottom left) and 2009 (bottom right) shows the newly constructed roads (linear features), drilling pads (square features at the end of the roads), and ponds (in different shades of blue) for an area within the Powder River Basin.

















The goal of EOD activities is to introduce teachers and students to remote sensing science and technology and is promoted by AmericaView.  Sivanpillai works with individual teachers in Laramie-area schools and develops remote sensing course materials that relate to the topics taught to students.

Blum and his student teachers introduced students to the human impact on the environment.  The remote sensing “presentation fit with our curriculum and the students were captivated,” Blum commented.  “Your presentation certainly made an impression on our students because the information you provided was referenced in several discussions that occurred later in our unit.”  Tailoring materials to individual class needs increases student engagement and learning.

  7. Students take experts’ help due to various reasons like, a student gets confused that they can complete their assignment on their own or not? Also, after the submission of their assignments they started to think about the marks? And the most important fear is, will the students be able to submit their assignments on time or not? So, stop thinking and start taking the assistance of a paper help service immediately.

  11. نقل الأثاث الثقيل ليس بالأمر السهل على الإطلاق ، وحتى أقل من ذلك عندما يتعين عليك تحريكه لأعلى الدرج! سواء كنت تنتقل إلى منزل جديد في طابق أعلى في شقة لا تحتوي على مصعد أو تحتاج إلى نقل بعض الأثاث إلى طابق آخر في المنزل ، فمن المهم استخدام الأسلوب الصحيح للقيام بذلك بأمان. اتخذ بعض الإجراءات لحماية الأثاث ومنزلك ونفسك من التلف والإصابة قبل أن تبدأ في نقل أي شيء. احمل قطعًا كبيرة على الدرج باستخدام مساعد أو استخدم عربة لنقل القطع الثقيلة الصغيرة والمتوسطة الحجم بمفردك بينما يكتشفك شخص ما من الأسفل. استفد من المعدات والتقنيات المتخصصة لتسهيل رفع بعض العناصر ووضعها في مكانها.

    نظافة المنزل تعتبر نظافة المنزل عاملاً أساسياً للصحة الجسدية والعقلية لأفرادها ، ولأن النظافة هي أساس الوقاية من الأمراض الناتجة عن تراكم الأوساخ والبكتيريا وتعكس صورة ونمط حياة صاحب المنزل ، تحتاج كل أسرة إلى إنشاء نظام للحفاظ على جميع تفاصيل المنزل والبقاء على اتصال مع جميع أفراد الأسرة
    يتم تنظيف المنزل لجعل المنزل يبدو أفضل ورائحته أكثر انتعاشا وأسهل للعيش فيه. بدون تنظيف المنزل، يمكن للجير أن يبني على الصنابير، وينمو العفن في المناطق الرطبة، وتظهر اللطخات على الأسطح الزجاجية، ويتكون الغبار على الأسطح، تفاعل الجراثيم يجعل سلال القمامة والمرحاض تفوح برائحة كريه وأنسجة العنكبوت تتراكم في الاسقف. الأدوات المستخدمة في تنظيف المنزل تشمل المكنسة الكهربائية والمكانس والمماسح والإسفنج، إلى جانب منتجات التنظيف مثل المنظفات والمطهرات المبيضات.
