Deserts are classified by their location and dominant weather pattern into several types: trade wind, midlatitude, rain shadow, coastal, monsoon, or polar deserts. Former desert areas presently in nonarid environments are paleodeserts, and extraterrestrial deserts exist on other planets. This site, produced by the U.S. Geological Survey, describes each type of desert using text and photographs. Full description.

This activity teaches students about meteorites through observation of the Meteorite Sample Disk, which may be borrowed from NASA. The disk contains six labeled meteorites embedded in a 15-cm plastic disk. These pieces of asteroids represent the products of basic planetary processes: accretion, differentiation, volcanism, and impact cratering. The page includes a brief section with meteorite information, ... Full description.
