150 Earth Science Labs

A share-a-thon is a place where teachers can voluntarily upload their files for other teachers to use. When a teacher submits a file, it is catalogued and placed into a database. To view more materials from the topic above or from different branches of science click here.


Determining Cloudbase
Find the base of clouds using the dewpoint and dry bulb temperatures.

Dewpoint And Relative Humidity By
Find Dewpoint and Relative Humidity using a psychrometer in the classroom.

Absorption & Radiation By Land & Water
To describe the comparative rates at which water and land surfaces heat and cool.

The Expanding Universe Lab
In this activity, you will use Hubble Space Telescope Images to view how objects in the Universe change and create scientific models of the Universe.

Minerals Computer Questionnaire
Go to a certain website and answer questions based on it.

Heat Transfer
A Heat Transfer Kit, two insulated containers (called calorimeters), thermometers, and an aluminum transfer bar make it possible to study the transfer of heat from a substance in one calorimeter to a substance in the other.

Features Of The Home Planet
A simple pencil and paper activity to introduce students to latitude, longitude and world geography.

Isotherm Lab
Isotherms help us to identify both warm and cold air masses. Isobars show areas of high and low pressure. In this lab you will practice drawing isotherms and isobars and locating air masses and areas of different pressures.

Pressure, Temperature And Mass-Relationships
A great way to "see" the relationships between temperature, and mass of air as it is being compressed.

Contour Plates By Drew Patrick
Students construct 3-D models of topographic maps using glass plates.
