This is an activity about the Earth-Moon system. Learners will build a scale model of the Earth-Moon system and predict the distance between the two, as well as the distance of Earth-orbiting spacecraft.

Audience: Middle school
Materials Cost: $1 - $5 per group of students

Students explore how mathematical descriptions of the physical environment can be fine-tuned through testing using data. In this activity, student teams obtain satellite data measuring the Earth's albedo, and then input this data into a... (View More)

In this activity, students simulate the interaction of variables, including carbon dioxide, in a radiation balance exercise using a spreadsheet-based radiation balance model. Through a series of experiments, students attempt to mimic the surface... (View More)

This is a lesson about volcanic activity. Learners will make volcanic eruptions using baking soda and vinegar, and then use colored play dough to make a record of the flow patterns. Then, groups of learners exchange their volcanoes so they can make... (View More)
