This activity combines science and art to provide an understanding about why the sea is salty. Students will obseve how salt concentration increases in water and how the salt remains after the water evaporates. They will do a salt painting using water, salt, and food coloring to observe the evaporation process. Full description.

This experiment is designed to allow students to observe and understand chemical and physical weathering of simulated "rocks". They will place the materials in plastic bags, one wet and one dry, and store them for 3-4 days. At the end of the storage period, they will observe the contents of both bags and answer some questions about what they see. Full description.

This online publication shows how chemists and geologists used analytical chemistry to determine the age of the Earth and to show that an extraterrestrial body collided with the Earth at the end of the Cretaceous period (K-T boundary). There are also chapters on the application of geochemistry to geologic processes (volcanoes, ore deposits, and others), its use in tracking environmental changes in ... Full description.
