The New Millennium Observatory (NeMO) is a seafloor observatory off the coast of Oregon, which studies the relationships between submarine volcanic events and the chemistry and distribution of hydrothermal vents and the biologic communities that depend on them. The research activities at NeMO provide an extraordinary educational opportunity, both from the daily reports from expeditions at sea and ... Full description.

The information on this site indicates that the life cycle of a glacier is more eventful than it appears. The site allows students to follow the journey of a single snowflake as it takes a ride through a glacier, a process that can take as much as 30,000 years to complete. It can be viewed as an interactive slide show or a single page of text and illustrations. Full description.

The goal of the PALEOMAP Project is to illustrate the plate tectonic development of the ocean basins and continents, as well as the changing distribution of land and sea during the past 1100 million years. In the section on Earth history you can select any time period, read about that period, and see the plate distribution during that period. There is also a section on climate history where you can ...

In this lesson, students will examine the challenges of balancing development and land conversion with the fiscal, technical and political challenges of addressing nutrient loading. They will have the opportunity to examine these issues based on real data and maps from their own watersheds. In Activities 1 and 2 students will compare the nitrogen loads when development occurs inside and outside the ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
Discovering Plate Boundaries is based on 5 world maps containing earthquake, volcano, topography, satellite gravity, and seafloor age data. The novel aspect of the exercise is the "jigsaw" manner in which student groups access the maps and use them to discover, classify, and describe plate boundary types. The exercise is based only on observation and description, which makes it useful at a wide variety ... Full description.

This lesson plan is part of the DiscoverySchool.com lesson plan library for grades 9-12. It centers around fossils found in the Burgess Shale in western Canada. Topics include body shapes of fossils found, the movement of organisms from oceans to land, and whether organisms existed that did not fossilize. This part of geologic history began in the Cambrian Sea about 540 million years ago. The resource ... Full description.
