In this activity, learners discover how geologists use stratigraphy, the study of layered rock, to understand the sequence of geological events.
In this seismic simulation, learners play a "who-dunnit" game to explore earthquakes.
In this activity, learners eat a snack and make a model of the plumbing system of a volcano.
In this activity, learners discover that the Moon, like Earth, is made up of layers of different materials. Learners work in teams to make models of the interiors of the Moon and Earth.
In this online activity, learners see simulations of how processes shape the Earth, and see estimates of how long these processes take.
In this activity, learners model hot spot island formation, orientation and progression with condiments.
In this activity (on pages 11-12 of PDF) learners create models of lava layers that have formed on the moon.
In this 6-7 day investigation, learners begin with an introduction to seamounts that are present in the Gulf of Alaska.
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.
Historically, sea floor mapping (bathymetry) was done by soundings.
In this yummy earth science activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners use fudge to learn about different kinds of lava.
In this activity, learners create volcanoes like those they have examined on Earth and Mars through images taken by spacecraft.
Based on color photographic images, learners compare geological features on Earth and Mars to understand similarities and differences between the two planets, and consider the forces that created land
