Coastal Erosion: Where's the Beach?Add to list Details
Learners use beach profile data from a local beach or online data from Ocean City, Maryland to investigate coastal erosion and sediment transport.
What Trickles Down?
Learners design their own experiment to explore the permeability of different materials such as soil, sand, gravel, and marbles.
WetlandsAdd to list Details
Learners create a model of a wetland to observe how it absorbs and filters water from the environment.
Exploring Earth: Land Cover
This activity models some of the ways natural processes, such as erosion and sediment pollution, affect Earth’s landscape.
The Squeeze Box
In this geology activity learners build a "squeeze box," which allows them to compress layers of sediment. This is a great way to investigate folding and faulting in the Earth.
Learners take a field trip along a local body of water and conduct a visual survey to discover information about local land use and water quality.
Layered Fossil Parfait: Deeper is OlderAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore dinosaur fossils by making an edible treat. First, learners read "Dinosaur Bones" by Aliki to examine how fossils are formed.
Make a Cast of a Tyrannosaurus rex FossilAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore dinosaur fossils by making cast models of a T. rex. First, learners read about and research how dinosaur fossils form.
Water TreatmentAdd to list Details
Water treatment on a large scale enables the supply of clean drinking water to communities.
Dirty Oil, Oily Dirt
In this activity, learners discover how sediment is affected in an oil spill. Learners investigate the differences between heavy and light oil as well as the differences between different sediments.
Giving Water the Treatment
In this ecology activity (page 8 of the PDF), learners explore how to filter contaminated water using a variety of materials.
Without An Ark: The Effects of Storms and FloodsAdd to list Details
April showers bring May flowers, but what do coastal storms bring?
Amphipods: More than MudAdd to list Details
In this data analysis and environmental science activity, learners examine the effects of pollution on amphipods using data from the Chesapeake Ecotox Research Program.
