Are You Kyoto Cool?
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will use past year's data to determine their per person CO2 production within their household. Students will then devise ways for decreasing their production. *CO2 is a greenhouse gas *Burning fossil fuels produces CO2 *Students can mak

Tiny Bubbles
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
CO2 gas is a dense gas and will displace oxygen from a tank. Air bubbles blown into the tank of CO2 gas will float on top of the gas. *Gases behave like a fluid *Characteristics of CO2 gas *Structure of matter

What's The Matter With Air?
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Use the concepts of density and heat energy to explain observations of weather patterns, seasonal changes, and the movements of Earth's plates.

The Effect Of Bedrock On Acid Rain
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students test the pH of samples of "acid rain" before and after different kinds of rock are placed in them. Students locate these rocks in NYS and determine the landscape regions most adversely affected by acid precipitation.

What's So New About Newspaper?
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will explore how newspaper behaves during different tests. They will determine how the internal structure (grain) of the paper will influence its behavior.

Should We Dam The Nanticoke
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
You'll be investigating what would occur if a dam were built along the Nanticoke Creek and what would be some of the positive and negative impacts this dam would have on individuals or towns.

Models Of The Earth
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will use an M&M to relate the thicknesses of the layers to the layers of the Earth. By applying pressure to a peanut M&M, students can observe the type of plate boundaries we find on Earth.

Stressful Situations
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Using common sandwich components, students work hands on to come up with their own personal ways of demonstrating faults types, stress, mountain formation, etc. Can also be modified for erosion, glacial activity, demonstration of original horizontally.

Seismic Activity
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Shoe boxes are filled with various materials which simulate Earth's surfaces. Dropping rocks on the boxes triggers a 'wave' that can be recorded by sliding paper up against a marker that is attached to the box.

Earthquakes And Plate Boundaries
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
The following lab activity requires the use of the Seismic Eruption software installed on the network.
