Students will gain an understanding of rock types and their different responses to physical and chemical weathering.
Students will examine two different techniques for mapping different aspects of the ocean, and will model those techniques on a small scale in the classroom.
In this activity, students will learn the different techniques used to map the ocean, and will practice using those techniques themselves in the classroom.
In this activity, students drop rubber balls in order to observe and measure the effects of elasticity. They use graphs to make predictions for further trials.
Students will use provided materials to develop a structure that will withstand movement in Earth.
In this activity, students create an acid-based indicator using red cabbage extract.
In this activity, students drop small spheres of different sizes and weights from different heights into flour.
In this activity, students will learn how waves, wind, water and glaciers all break rock and soil into smaller particles and move them around.
In this activity, students will examine and sketch various trace fossils from an unknown creature and then construct an image of the creature that they believe produced these fossils.
In this activity, students will build a simple solar cooker, make observations and qualitatively describe the melting rate of a piece of chocolate in the cooker.
In this activity, students will gain an understanding of the value of using a scale model and the effect of water speed on erosion rate and stream formation.
In this activity, students will make their own weather station.
In this activity, students will learn about how human lifestyles cause the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide to be released into the air.
In this activity, students will evaluate water ice balloons to reconstruct recent climate history by sorting different layers of evidence.
In this activity, students will excavate a box containing several layers of sediment.
In this activity, students will design a bridge or a building and observe how it performs in a simulated earthquake.
In this activity, students use a stream table to model the processes of erosion and streambed formation.
In this activity, students will create a model of a sloped hillside using sand and simulate conditions that can cause a landslide to occur.
