This collection of activities and lesson plans covers grade levels 7-12, with notes on how some of the plans might be adapted for other age groups. Topics fall mainly within tectonics, with some structural geology and planetary science projects. The PDF files include activities, hand outs, maps, and even directions for building a simple seismometer and seismograph. Also included are suggestions for ... 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.

In this lesson, students learn about the structure of the Earth, using a nectarine as a model to represent the crust, mantle and core. The same model can also be used to show how much land on Earth is considered usable. This lesson could be used as an introduction to a unit about the Earth, or the beginning of a series of activites focused on the Earth and environment. Full description.
