This experimental activity is designed to develop an understanding that air has mass. Students conduct an investigation and observe the change in the position of a bar balancing a balloon inflated with air on one end and a uninflated balloon on the... (View More)

This experimental activity is designed to develop a basic understanding of the interrelationship between temperature and pressure and the structure of a device made to examine this relationship. Resources needed to conduct this activity include two... (View More)

This experimental activity is designed to develop a basic understanding of the relationship between temperature and pressure and that a barometer can be constructed to detect this relationship. Resources needed to build a simple barometer include a... (View More)

This chapter provides a series of investigations, ranging from teacher-centered to open inquiry, that involve the formation of clouds in a model cyclone, and demonstrating how the availability of heat (indicated by temperature) affects formation and... (View More)

This experimental activity is designed to develop basic understanding of the relationship between the angle of light rays and the area over which the light rays are distributed, and the potential to affect changes in the temperature of materials.... (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)

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)

In this inquiry investigation, students discover how a given amount of light changes in intensity when the area it shines on changes, and that change in light and heat occurs when the Earth is tilted towards or away from the Sun. Supplies required... (View More)
