In this laboratory activity, students are introduced to the different particle sizes of soil and their properties. Using sieves, students remove organic materials and pebbles, and separate sand, silt, and clay. Students experiment by combining sand,... (View More)

In this demonstration activity, a piece of toast, sandpaper, marbles and a spray bottle of water is used to demonstrate the creation of regolith. Regolith is the loose, unconsolidated sediment that forms from weathering of bedrock on Earth and... (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)

Wave movement is explored using a metal tray of prepared gelatin, dominoes, sugar cubes, plastic wrap and a rubber mallet, in a demonstration of physical principles supporting the study of earthquakes. The resource is part of the teacher's guide... (View More)

Students experiment with a model system made from a wooden block, sandpaper, a thumbtack, and a rubber band to understand earthquakes. In this system, the rubber band stores energy until it accumulates enough energy to overcome friction and move the... (View More)

This student worksheet provides a word find puzzle as a review of scientific terms associated with tectonic activity. The resource is part of the teacher's guide accompanying the video, NASA SCI Files: The Case of the Shaky Quake. Lesson objectives... (View More)
