This resource, from Science in the Classroom (AAAS), uses an authentic scientific research paper and an interactive web tool to help students and teachers investigate the phenomenon of forest cover change at different scales over time. The provided full text original article, published in the journal Science (AAAS) in 2014, summarizes satellite data from 2000 to 2012 in a series of high-resolution global maps showing changes in forest cover. Both natural and human causes of change are identified. Students can select instructional supports from a sidebar. An Educator Guide includes two primary sections; one section provides general use information for all Science in the Classroom annotated articles and a second section contains materials specific to this article. A provided link to Google's Global Forest Change Explorer contains all the original data, interactive maps, as well as a student worksheet. Further, the research article provides tabular data within a downloadable pdf of supplementary materials. Students engage in three-dimensional learning as they analyze and use real data towards building understanding of ecosystem dynamics and resilience at different scales.
