This lesson is the second in a two-part series on fossils. It explores the information that can be discerned by comparing fossils to living organisms. Students explore fossils and are responsible for using what they have learned to do their own extrapolating. Students conduct an interview with the remains of a Protoceratops. In preparation for the interview, they brainstorm the questions for which ... Full description.

Plants and animals are usually organized by their family tree (origin) and by their physical and genetic characteristics. This activity helps to demonstrate to students that geologists do the same with rocks, which are usually organized by their origin and by their physical and chemical characteristics. To have a better understanding of nature and as one of the initial steps of scientific understanding, ... Full description.

This activity gives students a look at the rugged terrain of the ocean floor. Using modeling clay, students create a landform model complete with mountain ridges, plateaus, rivers, and canyons in a large waterproof pan. Then they pour in blue-tinted water to see that the ocean is simply flooded land with many of the same landforms found above water. The activity includes an extension that has students ...

This site allows students to take a closer look at three rocks: Gowganda Tillite, Loraine Quartzite, and Gowganda Glacial Conglomerate. On the opening page, there are side-by-side photos of the three rocks and students are asked to describe each one. Clicking a photo of the rock takes students to a magnified view of the rock. The site also includes links to a Tips for Adult Helpers page and to a printable ... Full description.

In this lesson, students will understand what can be learned from fossils and in doing so, realize the difference between fact and theory. This lesson is the first of a two-part series on fossils. These lessons will go beyond naming dinosaurs and give students a broad understanding of how we know about the great beasts. They will start to acquire knowledge of the fossil record in preparation for learning ... Full description.

This interactive online tool helps students grasp just how deep scientists must dive to study deep sea vents. By providing points of comparison, it puts the nearly unfathomable depth of the ocean floor into perspective. It compares the scale of a 2,400-meter (7,874-foot) dive against the height of famous landmarks such as the Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower, and the Space Needle. Students ...
