In this activity students convert major events in Earth history from years before present into scale distances. After a list of events and their scale distances have been formulated, students construct a geologic time scale on 5 meters of adding machine paper, beginning with the formation of the Earth. Students will investigate change through geologic time; design, construct and interpret a model ... Full description.

For this activity students read the newspaper on a daily basis, listen to news on the radio, or watch television, to acquire material related to the earth sciences. They will look for natural hazards (earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, hurricanes, etc.), human-made hazards (urbanization, compromised engineering projects, etc.), environmental issues, or resource extraction issues which all appear ...

This abbreviated explanation of the subject of plate tectonics is divided into several parts. The first section, entitled Into the Earth, describes the crust, mantle and core of the Earth, while the next section shows a world map with the plates delineated. The section called Action at the Edges uses text and diagrams to explain what is occurring at the plate boundaries. Links lead to a detailed discussion ... Full description.

In this activity, students design a way to demonstrate both solar and lunar eclipses to someone who does not understand them. They should be able to discuss shadows, light, and clarity of images that are produced when there is a bright light source, like the sun. Students are challenged to use sunlight to provide the distinct shadows they need, and present and explain their models to the class. Suggestions ... Full description.

This site was fashioned to debunk the erroneous information contained in a television miniseries. To find out if an earthquake of magnitude 10.5 is possible students can try the Earthquake Simulator, where they can control the parameters of the fault and explore their effect on the amount of energy released during an earthquake. In addition there are lesson plans and resources for using the Earthquake ... Full description.

This website provides visual resources for the Earth Science teacher to use in front of a classroom to foster group discussion. Its ultimate goal is to make scientific data, fresh from the field, readily available for K-12 teachers and students to use to enhance their understanding of earth science. This will require both installation of specialized hardware and development of pertinent software. ... Full description.

This site lists the basic types of volcanoes: scoria cone, shield volcano, and stratovolcano. Each is described in terms of shape, composition, and eruption type, and links are available to additional information. Subordinate types listed include fissure eruptions, spatter cones, hornitos, and hydrovolcanic eruptions. The site also explains when a volcano is considered active, dormant, or extinct. ...

This site provides information on plate boundaries, which are found at the edge of the lithospheric plates and are of three types: convergent, divergent and conservative. Wide zones of deformation are usually characteristic of plate boundaries because of the interaction between two plates. The three boundaries are characterized by their distinct motions which are described in the text and depicted ... Full description.
