This interactive lesson on metamorphic rocks starts with a review of the rock cycle and goes on to describe the relationship between metamorphic rocks and their parent rock. The lesson then describes the agents of metamorphism (temperature, pressure, and chemical change) and moves into a discussion on contact, regional, and dynamic metamorphism. The remainder of the lesson consists of descriptions ... Full description.

This activity introduces students to the concept of the chemical formation of a mineral from a hot, semi-liquid melt, and to basic stoichiometric concepts regarding the formula of a mineral (or chemical compound). It can be performed by the students themselves or as a demonstration by the teacher. They will weigh out samples of iron filings and of sulfur, test them, make some observations of their ...

This demonstration reinforces the concept that minerals can form even at low temperatures, meaning that these processes can occur at or near Earth's surface. Using 'water glass' (sodium silicate nanahydrate) and any of a variety of metal salts, the teacher can grow crystals of silicate at room temperature in a container as the students watch and record their observations. A student worksheet and discussion ... Full description.

Are we made of stars? This video segment features scientists studying light emissions from exploding stars called supernovas. It explains the process by which new elements are formed in these explosions and then disseminated to create planets and new stars. The segment is one minute fifty-five seconds in length. A background essay and list of discussion questions are also provided. Full description.

It's remarkable to think that a compound renowned for its safety and stability in commercial products could have dramatically compromised the health of our planet, but that's just what chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) has done. This video segment describes how CFCs, once widely used in refrigerators and aerosol cans, damaged the protective layer of ozone in our atmosphere. The segment is five minutes four ...

This series of activities is designed to show students how a large scale planetary process, the transport of heat over the surface of the Earth, operates and has operated over time. The activities include how energy is absorbed by the Earth from the Sun, how and why this energy is distributed over the earth's surface, what controls energy distribution, how we can track the energy distributing process ...
