Investigation 2: What's hot at the mall?
|Extensions and Enrichment||
This investigation examines how shopping malls change natural environments. Studying NASA thermal images of a mall and its immediate surroundings introduces students to urban deforestation and to the formation of urban heat islands. Studying malls from an environmental perspective demonstrates the usefulness of geography in daily life and offers opportunities for direct observation and fieldwork.
