# Exploring Crustal Materials from a Mystery Planet

Common materials such as sand, gravel, pebbles, shells, etc. are used to represent crustal materials from an unknown planet. Students begin by sorting, classifying, and making observations about the sample. Using that information, they must then... (View More)

# Rocks, Soils, and Surfaces: Planetary Sample and Impact Cratering Unit

Students are introduced to planetary rocks, soils, and surfaces using images of the lunar samples collected by Apollo astronauts. Examining those images and participating in related activities will lead students to a deeper understanding of the... (View More)

# Blue Marble Matches: Using Earth for Planetary Comparisons

This activity is designed to introduce students to planetary geologic features and processes. First, students will use NASA satellite images to identify geologic surface features on the "Blue Marble" (Earth), and will explore the connection between... (View More)

# S'COOL Lesson: Visual Opacity

In this lesson bridging art and science, students build understanding of the terms translucent, opaque, and transparent, as they apply to cloud descriptions, and create a collage using materials matching these characteristics, as well as a... (View More)

# Liquid Rainbow

This is a hands-on lab activity about seawater density. After developing a hypothesis, learners will conduct a simple investigation of density. They will discuss changes in density observed and describe how salt affects the density of water.... (View More)

# Cloudscape

Using information from their own observations, students construct a sky scene with trees and buildings as reference points on the ground and cloud types ordered by altitude in the sky. Students will describe clouds and then correlate their... (View More)

In this introduction to contrails, students explore both the origin and the three types of contrails. An indoor activity using tempera paint precedes outdoor observations and analyses of actual contrails. This is the 2nd of 3 sets of learning... (View More)

# Soil Treasure Hunt

Students will make predictions about what they think they will find in a sample of soil. They will investigate the sample and sort out the various items they find. Next they will spend time outside observing one or more sites to see what they find... (View More)

# Magnify That

Students will learn about magnification and how a magnifying lens works. They will examine a variety of different objects, first without a magnifier and then with a magnifier, and compare what they observe. They will practice observing details of... (View More)

Keywords: Hydrosphere

# Studying the Instrument Shelter

In this project, students construct shelters that have varying properties and place them in the same location, or place similar shelters in different locations and compare temperature data taken in each shelter. Students predict what will happen for... (View More)
