The PALEOMAP Project illustrates 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. The reconstruction of paleoclimates is also discussed. Maps are viewed as animations where the time component can be user-manipulated. Included are a variety of background materials which supplement the animations. ... Full description.

Researchers such as paleoclimatologists or dendrochronologists use tree ring analyses as one tool to reconstruct climate information about the past. They will often reference data from other sources such as historical weather records, and ice core or ocean core samples to support their findings. In this lesson students will utilize monthly average precipitation data to strengthen conclusions about ... Full description.

This activity will help students understand how NASA scientists are discovering evidence of impact craters on Earth through satellite images and technology, which enables them to see landforms that we cannot see with our eyes alone. Earth and all the other planets and moons of our Solar System have been continuously pelted by asteroids and comets ever since their formation. On Earth though, wind and ... Full description.

Students will utilize the Internet to take a virtual field trip to visit a glacier and discover what physical effects glaciers have on the land. They will also have the opportunity to virtually visit Vermont and trace the pictorial history of how a whale's fossils were found there. The site also contains a student worksheet for their visual field trip. The site also provides an explanation of the ... Full description.

This website highlights a game designed for students studying earth science, life science and evolution. The game reinforces the principle that fossils reveal a record of life on earth and help students relate and match fossils of specific life forms to information known about those life forms. Students role-play as paleontologists searching the world for the pre-historic remnants and evidence of ... Full description.
