This is a lesson about locating impact craters on Earth using longitude, latitude, and maps. Learners will observe impact craters on Earth and other solar system bodies, discuss geologic forces that have erased much of the evidence of past impacts, locate existing and potential impact sites, and plan the necessary research (including a field work plan and request for funding) to investigate and verify ...

In this textbook chapter, students are introduced to the study of tectonics through an exploration of the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens, including an interview with geomorphologist Dr. Danny Vaughn, Indiana State University. The flow of energy, convection, in the Earth's mantle is discussed and connected to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and the movement of the Earth?s plates. The resource includes ... Full description.

Students will time the flow of water through soils with different properties and measure the amount of water held in these soils. They will also experiment with the filtering ability of soils by testing the pH of the water before and after it passes through the soil and observing changes to the clarity of the water and to the characteristics of the soil. Students build an experimental apparatus using ... Full description.

In this hands-on activity, students conduct bottle experiments to learn about the conditions that best facilitate the decomposition of organic material in soil. In the lab, they observe changes in the decomposition of vegetable scraps by varying the temperature, moisture and light conditions. This is a learning activity associated with the GLOBE soil investigations and is supported by the Soil chapter ... Full description.
