In this My NASA Data Lesson, Using Precipitation and Vegetation to Study Climate Zones, students observe average values of global precipitation and vegetation over the course of one month using NASA visualizations created from satellite data. Students investigate possible relationships between the vegetation and precipitation in small groups, studying one continent and sharing their results with the class. Approximately one class period needed, 50-60 minutes.
