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.
Whose Fault Is It?Add to list Details
In this seismic simulation, learners play a "who-dunnit" game to explore earthquakes.
Single Serving VolcanismAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners eat a snack and make a model of the plumbing system of a volcano.
Recipe for a MoonAdd to list Details
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.
Shape it Up
In this online activity, learners see simulations of how processes shape the Earth, and see estimates of how long these processes take.
Hot Sauce Hot SpotsAdd to list Details
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.
Mountains in the Sea
In this 6-7 day investigation, learners begin with an introduction to seamounts that are present in the Gulf of Alaska.
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.
Map That Habitat
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.
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.
Earth and Mars
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
Teen Moon: Moon OozeAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners model how the Moon's volcanic period reshaped its earlier features.
