In this activity, learners discover how geologists use stratigraphy, the study of layered rock, to understand the sequence of geological events.
In this activity, learners conduct a simulation exercise related to public key encryption and try to intercept a message sent between two learners.
In this activity, learners explore dinosaur fossils and a dig site. Learners work in groups to analyze a dig site map and match bones to a skeletal drawing of Kelsey (a Triceratops).
In this activity (on pages 18-29) learners explore the impact of the March 24, 1989 oil spill in Alaska caused by the Exxon Valdez tanker.
In this activity, learners help a poor cartographer color in the countries on a map, making sure each country is colored a different color than any of its neighbors.
In this activity, learners map their world by drawing a plan of their bedroom.
In this activity, learners build and test a compass. Learners work in pairs and pretend they are stuck in the wilderness at night.
Learners use their opponent's clues and a compass rose to find the hidden treasure on a map. Learners use problem solving and coordinate grid skills as they hunt for treasure.
This lesson familiarizes learners with the term "tropical belt." First, learners locate the equator, Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn on a map and trace these lines with a crayon.
In this activity, two groups of learners create two separate landform models out of clay (mountains and valleys).
In this outdoor activity, learners discover how the environment around a building affects the growth of plants.
In this activity, learners examine the culture and history of the tomb site.
In this outdoor mapping activity, learners explore where plants grow and map plant-distribution patterns.
In this activity, learners graph 48 hourly air temperatures from a local weather observation site and observe the diurnal temperature variations.
In this activity, learners investigate soil conditions by creating a soil map. Learners record soil characteristics and compare the conditions of soil in different grid sections.
In this activity, learners discover the importance of maps and scale as they work together to create a map of the classroom.
In this activity, learners participate in a simulated dig to discover fossilized dinosaur bones. Learners take notes, make a map and propose theories about dinosaurs.
Learners work as a group to create a map of their community. They use pasta to represent people, and glue the pasta on their maps to show areas of large population.
By tossing, collecting, and sorting beanbags, learners understand how the IBEX spacecraft uses its sensors to detect and map the locations of particle types in the interstellar boundary.
