Investigation 3: Some unusual pathways

Extensions and Enrichment

NASA images introduce students to some unusual natural and human-made paths. These include the following: ancient camel caravan tracks, lava flows, ship channels, and smoke paths. The investigaiton introduces the idea of one way or two way paths. It provides an opportunity for students to work together to study the images and to pose and answer many questions about the paths. They record their observations and draw conclusions about the origins and nature of these pathways. They also match the images with descriptions of the paths shown and use maps to gather more information about the environments in the images.
