In this demonstration, students learn about the physical process of liquification and how it causes the ground to become unstable during an earthquake. Required materials include a plastic tub, sand, water, a brick and a rubber mallet. The resource... (View More)

This demonstration shows that an increase in temperature will speed up the water cycle. One outcome will be an increase in rainfall. A second outcome will be the increase in total evaporation of water and subsequent drought. Materials required... (View More)

This demonstration will show how increased temperatures will hasten the melting of ice in the environment, contributing to a rise in sea level and subsequent flooding of coastal areas. Materials required include 2 aquariums, plastic wrap, a clamp... (View More)

In this demonstration, students explore the concept of greenhouse warming. They determine whether an increase in the amount of heat-trappping gases in the atmosphere can cause the temperature on Earth to rise. Students compare the relative heat... (View More)

Students investigate whether global climate change will intensify the effects of hurricanes on coastal communities by determining the areas most vulnerable to hurricane surges by using topographic maps, a physical model, and a time series of... (View More)

Students build a simple aneroid barometer that can be used to measure changes in air pressure. Materials required include a large jar, ruler, large balloon, 2 drinking straws, and clay. The instrument is used to track changes in air pressure, and... (View More)

Students see that natural hazards present personal and societal challenges by playing a board game that simulates hurricane landfall. Students decide to prepare for, evacuate, do nothing, or stay in their house, and are rewarded for making the right... (View More)

In this investigation, students use a a homemade psychrometer to measure relative humidity Two metal thermometers, a small piece of cloth, string, and a timer are required materials. The resource includes a chart which students use to calculate... (View More)

Multiple activities illustrate the concept of changes in bodies of water over time. Emphasis is placed on the use of remote sensing to monitor changes in water bodies that are due to climate change, erosion, drought, human intervention and natural... (View More)

This resource introduces the concept of wind chill, the formula used to measure it and relates it to the causes of hypothermia. A simple experiment using a pie pan, sand, fan and a thermometer demonstrates this concept. The resource is from PUMAS -... (View More)
