This simple demonstration is about the role of dinosaurs in the carbon cycle and the eventual storage of excess carbon in the form of chalk. Students will come to understand the importance of the carbon cycle, appreciate that it has always been essential for life on earth, and appreciate the role of the oceans as a carbon sink. The instructor guide contains detailed background material, learning goals, ... Full description.

The aim of this activity is to introduce students to the common elements found in the Earth. Students study, compare and answer questions about graphs showing the elemental composition of the Earth's crust and of the aggregate composition of the compounds found in a typical school prep room. They will find that many of the elements already familiar to them may not be at all common in the Earth's crust ... Full description.

This video explores the role of biogeochemical cycles in the formation of caves. It discusses a radical new theory that identifies sulfuric acid as a cave-forming agent. The video, adapted from a NOVA broadcast, identifies the source of the sulfuric acid, which, unlike carbonic acid, the typical cave-forming agent, does not readily form in nature. The segment is 5 minutes and forty seconds in length. ... Full description.

This video segment shows how scientists collaborate to collect and chemically analyze samples of molten lava as part of their quest to learn more about how volcanoes work. Working at Kilauea volcano, scientists collect samples of lava before it has a chance to cool so they can study the chemical properties it had when it was deep within Earth's interior. The samples are sent to a laboratory where ... Full description.

This interactive site introduces students to concepts related to asbestos and how geologists analyze asbestos in building materials. The site is divided into three components: the geology of asbestos, identifying asbestos in the lab, and asbestos in our world. Each section of the site provides information, images and interactive quizzes. Of particular interest is the use of images to simulate use ... Full description.

This guide instructs teachers in classroom use of the MELTS software package. MELTS is a software package designed to facilitate thermodynamic modeling of phase equilibria in magmatic systems. It is used by scientists to model igneous processes such as the composition of magma melts as pressure and temperature change, or to test scenarios such as how much sulfur a volcano gives off. Teaching topics ... Full description.
