This lesson explores the realm and limits of science. It engages students to give examples of topics that can be studied by science and those that cannot. It also takes a look at descriptive terms which reflect the true nature of modern science and those which do not, especially those which do not fit the popular perceptions of science.

This article reports on the life and influence of James Hutton, considered the founder of modern geology. It covers the existing thinking about Earth's creation, how Hutton's scientific training and his work as a farmer came together in his pursuit of geology, his important contributions to the new science of geology, and the influence his work had on future generations of scientists. The article ... Full description.

Module covering Earth's three fluid spheres: oceans, atmosphere and cryosphere (glaciers). An event seen in each sphere illustrates processes and concepts: El Nino events for oceans; thunderstorm formation for atmosphere; and global temperature change impacts on glaciers. Concepts covered include: properties of air, water, ice as fluids; flow of energy and matter between spheres; short and long-term ... Full description.

In this activity, students construct a model that will allow them to experiment with thermal convection, illustrating how thermal energy can generate a flowing motion in a fluid. The thermal convection in this model is similar to the convection that is inferred for the Earth's mantle and can produce horizontal flow that can cause or is related to plate motions. Students will investigate the viscosity ... Full description.
