This site features several Flash animations that illustrate the concept of isopleths, or contour lines of equal value. Most of the animations are interactive and allow the user to interpret contour spacing, hachured lines, and valley/ridge placement. One animation allows the user to practice drawing contour lines. These resources are suitable for use in lectures, labs, or other teaching activities. ... Full description.

In this activity, students match photographs of igneous rocks with descriptions of their formation. There are also two teacher demonstrations that will help students to identify pumice and volcanic ash with graded bedding. Other pictures and descriptions are of breccia, columnar jointing in a basaltic lava flow, coarse grained granite, and phenocrysts in a porphyry. At the end of the activity students ...
