Burning Down The House
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
The addition of oxygen into Earth's atmosphere by cyannobacteria led to the creation of banded iron formations. Oxygen was poisonous to life at that time. Once cells could utilize oxygen, they had much more energy at their disposal.

Relative Age Self-Design Quiz
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students use relative age principles to describe the processes that formed a geologic profile, draw the profile as an answer key, and give their "quiz" to another student. Students use a teacher designed rubric to score their quiz.

The Story That Rocks Can Tell
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
By using prior knowledge of sedimentary rock formation and the agents of erosion and deposition, students use a set of rock samples and the principle of superposition to make observations and inferences. This data is then used to write a story.

Earth History Tours, Inc
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will use charts and internet resources to gain an understanding of a specific time period. Students are time travel agents creating an advertisement for their geologic time period.

Time Travellers: Adventure To The Archaean
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will study fossil evidence of life on Earth from the PreCambrian through the Cenozoic. Specifically, and based on information derived from a web site on Archaean life and conditions, students will write an illustrated report.

Travel Past Inc.
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will study a set of 8 fossils and determine their time-lines and specific ages. They will also consider the bedrock and glacial history of the area and weave a coherent story for the finding of the set of fossils.

White Plains MetARs
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students examine a 'one week' MetAR to find trends in temperature and pressure over the course of one week in October.

Weather Maps In Motion
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
How do we interpret current weather maps? Students will observe current weather map loop animations. They will observe the movement of fronts and air masses. They will analyze a specific weather station model.

How's The Air Up There
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
How does the atmosphere change with altitude? Students will obtain current upper air radiosonde soundings from the web. They will generate graphs and analyze them.
