Students will work in teams to create visual models to assist in understanding the volume of surface ozone in the air. Students construct cubes of different volumes and compare them to get a feel for parts per million by volume and parts per billion... (View More)

In this activity, students work in teams to calculate relative air mass and demonstrate how solar elevation angle affects the intensity of light that reaches an observer on the ground. The resource includes a student data sheet. This learning... (View More)

In this demonstration, sheet cakes are used to show how tectonic forces create convergent, divergent and transform plate boundaries. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA SCI Files: The Case of the Shaky Quake.... (View More)

In this activity, students create a model of sea floor spreading using two sheets of white paper and a metric ruler. The paper strips are pulled through a slit representing a mid-ocean ridge and divergent plate boundary. The model mimics how molten... (View More)

In this demonstration, an egg is used as a model of the Earth. The egg is tapped gently, to create cracks in the shell. The pieces of shell are analogous to the Earth's plates, and the cracks are used to explain plate boundaries. Using the egg, the... (View More)

Students become familiar with strike-slip faults, normal faults, reverse faults and visualize these geological structures using cardboard or a plank of wood, a stack of books, protractor, and a spring scale. The resource is part of the teacher's... (View More)

In this hands-on activity, students build a physical model of the atmosphere using paper disks, then use the model to learn the structure of the atmosphere and the scientific terms used to describe the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere,... (View More)

In this paper and pencil exercise, students create graphs that describe the effect of a series of experiments using Daisy World, an energy balance model, that can be used to demonstrate concepts of equilibrium, homeostatis, and positive and negative... (View More)
