This demonstration illustrates the properties of the mantle of the Earth, using potty putty mixed with a solution of borax and simple glue. When left on the desk the potty putty will sink and spread. However it will also bounce like a ball if enough borax is used and it can be stretched far more than plasticine if pulled gently, but can also be fractured if pulled suddenly. Students will discover ... 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.

These two programs are available for free download from this website. Also included is the technical information users might need to have the program running in the classroom, including how to update the database of earthquakes. Seismic/eruption is a program that plots the epicenter of all earthquakes within a time period, geographic region, and magnitude chosen by the user. This program also does ... Full description.

This activity introduces students to planetary research. Students learn to focus on details by studying and writing descriptions of uncaptioned images of the Solar System. They then increase their knowledge of the planets and their features by comparing their descriptions to those of real researchers. Students organize their findings to infer a key difference between inner and outer planets. Full description.

This site presents photos of some building damage from notable earthquakes and some associated intensity maps. This information will help students recognize the types of damage done to structures by earthquakes. The examples are classified by the dominant mode of failure observed and include soft first story collapse, mid-story building collapse, buildings shifted off of their foundations, freeway ...

This in-class exercise, profiled on the Starting Point website, is intended to have the students discover plate boundaries based on the uneven geographic occurrence of geologic hazards. The website details the learning goals, teaching notes and materials, and context for this activity. It offers an extensive list of links to additional resources and materials for lecture on geologic hazards and plate ... Full description.

These activities illustrate the order of rocks in a sequence and tells us about the relative timing of their formation. Students use layers of colored sand and colored paper to simulate the sequencing involved in the formation of rock layers. At the end of the activities students should understand that rocks lower in a sequence are usually older than ones that are higher up (superposition). They should ... Full description.

This resource presents three examples of lava domes, from Alaska, Japan, and Saudi Arabia, along with a 3D simulated view of Mt. St. Helens' lava dome. A diagram shows the progressive growth of Mt. St. Helens' lava dome from 1980 to 1983. A link leads to a thorough explanation of dome-collapse pyroclastic flows (nuee ardentes) and another leads to a numerical program of lava dome growth.
