This activity will aid in the understanding of high and low pressure behavior, vacuums, and molecular structure. Students play the roles of "air molecules" to simulate high and low pressures, and use balloons to simulate clouds. They should be able to describe high and low pressure areas, identify a front, and explain why areas of high pressure seek areas of low pressure. There is also a suggestion ... Full description.

These activities present evidence, illustrations and visualizations for some of the changes in the Earth's crust. Students will learn to categorize materials as either chemically or physically weathered, describe how a glacier can change the crust of the Earth (erratic rocks, hills, scraping), and identify at least five examples of changes in the crust within walking distance of their school.

This activity is part of a series of lessons in a continuing study of change. It is designed to give students hands-on experience manipulating and controlling the variables involved in the process of soil erosion. They will be able to identify variables that influence rates of change and use group consensus to design and build what they believe to be the strongest mountain possible. Full description.

In this learning module, students are involved in an observational study of air pollutants in the atmosphere. The students collect and examine air quality and weather data, looking for correlations between weather and air quality. They discover through their observations that certain atmospheric conditions, including high pressure, clear skies and little or no wind create the conditions for poor air ... Full description.
