In this investigation, students discover the spatial relationship between recent earthquakes, volcanoes, and the Earth's plates through visual inspection of tectonic activity plots on world maps, and by comparing the position of recent tectonic events with the position of the Earth's plates. Summary background information, data and images supporting the activity are available on the Earth Update data ... Full description.

This module include four problem-based learning scenarios related to volcanoes and emphasize different kinds of volcanic hazards and geologic processes. The four scenarios are: whether to build a new high school in the shadow of a restless volcanic giant, Mt. Rainier; Kilauea in Hawaii shows signs of activity. What are the prospects for the nearby population?; Mt. Hood is starting to act like Mt. ... Full description.

In this laboratory activity, students are introduced to the different particle sizes of soil and their properties. Using sieves, students remove organic materials and pebbles, and separate sand, silt, and clay. Students experiment by combining sand, silt and clay in different combinations, make a brick, and let it dry. Based on visual observations, they suggest which combination created the best brick. ...

In this demonstration, an egg is used as a model of the Earth. The egg is tapped gently, to create cracks in the shell. The pieces of shell are analogous to the Earth's plates, and the cracks are used to explain plate boundaries. Using the egg, the process of subduction as well as divergent, convergent, and transform boundaries are demonstrated. Activity sheets depicting a cross section of the Earth ... Full description.

In this demonstration activity, a piece of toast, sandpaper, marbles and a spray bottle of water is used to demonstrate the creation of regolith. Regolith is the loose, unconsolidated sediment that forms from weathering of bedrock on Earth and produced on the Moon by the bombardment of the lunar surface by meteorites. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA SCI Files: ... Full description.

Students experiment with a model system made from a wooden block, sandpaper, a thumbtack, and a rubber band to understand earthquakes. In this system, the rubber band stores energy until it accumulates enough energy to overcome friction and move the block across the sandpaper, modeling elastic rebound observed in plate tectonics. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, ... Full description.
