Lava Layering: Making and Mapping a Volcano
In this activity, learners discover how geologists use stratigraphy, the study of layered rock, to understand the sequence of geological events.
Single Serving VolcanismAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners eat a snack and make a model of the plumbing system of a volcano.
Observing the Moon
Use this Moon Map Guide to help learners identify features on the Moon, while looking through a telescope.
In this activity (on pages 11-12 of PDF) learners create models of lava layers that have formed on the moon.
Chocolate (Sea Floor) LavaAdd to list Details
In this edible experiment, learners pour "Magic Shell" chocolate into a glass of cold water. They'll observe as pillow shaped structures form, which resemble lavas on the sea floor.
A Crayon Rock Cycle - Igneous
This is part 3 of the three-part "Crayon Rock Cycle" activity. Before starting this section, learners must have completed part 1: sedimentary rock and part 2: metamorphic rocks.
In this yummy earth science activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners use fudge to learn about different kinds of lava.
Mars from Above: Viewing VolcanoesAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners create volcanoes like those they have examined on Earth and Mars through images taken by spacecraft.
In this game, learners are volcanoes that must complete several steps to erupt. Starting at home plate, learners draw cards until they have enough points to move to first base.
Make a Salt Volcano (Lava Lite)Add to list Details
This activity about density provides instructions for making a miniature "lava lite" with just salt, oil, water, and food coloring.
Teen Moon: Moon OozeAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners model how the Moon's volcanic period reshaped its earlier features.
In this earth science activity, learners conduct a series of short experiments to explore how rocks change.
Rock Cycle Roundabout
In this activity, learners will learn how igneous rock, metamorphic rock, and sedimentary rock are formed as part of the rock cycle and that the same forces that produce/change rocks also produce/chan
