This model demonstrates convection currents and uses water, food coloring, a cup of very hot water and a votive candle as heat sources. Movie clips of demonstration setup and convection in action are provided. This activity is supported by a... (View More)

Sea Floor Spreading

Sea floor spreading is demonstrated using a model consisting of two classroom desks and an 8-foot strip of paper. Changes in polarity are indicated using a felt marker. The investigation supports material presented in chapter 3, "What Heats the... (View More)

The Bubbler and Radio Scintillation

This is a lesson about the formation of plasma bubbles in Earth's ionosphere. Plasma bubbles cause stars to twinkle and radio signals from satellites to distort. Learners will build a model ionosphere in order to demonstrate and understand this... (View More)

Constructing a Model of Surface Ozone

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)

An Apple as the Planet

In this demonstration, an apple is used to help students visualize the relative amounts of land and water resources on the planet, and highlights the vulnerability of these resources we share. The apple is sectioned proportionately according to... (View More)

Where Do They Come From? Searching for Meteorites

Learners will use water balloons to demonstrate meteorite impacts, use geography to assess various terrains for meteorite recovery, attempt to recover simulated meteorite fragments, make experimental predictions, graph the results, and draw... (View More)
