Station Model Analysis
Date Submitted: 2013-02-23
Students both interpret a model data, and draw their own. An answer key for this handout is at the website New York Science Teacher under the title, "Station Model Analysis Answer Key."

Orographic Effect Precipitation Formation
Date Submitted: 2013-02-03
Students are asked to explain what processes are responsible for the formation orographic (mountain) cloud and precipitation.

Exit Ticket: Sun's Apparent Path
Date Submitted: 2013-01-23
This single page can be cut in half for a quick assessment, or "exit ticket". Students are asked to draw the sun's daily apparent path on a celestial sphere for an observer located in lower New York State on both equinox and solstice dates.

Pangaea And Geologic Time
Date Submitted: 2013-01-02
I cut out the middle of pages 8 and 9 to focus on just geologic events and land mass positions with respect to geologic time.

ESRT Page 5 Worksheet
Date Submitted: 2012-12-04

Worksheets with contour maps so students understand how to interpret the topography of an area

Using The Sedimentary Scheme
Date Submitted: 2012-11-08
This is to help students use the Sedimentary Scheme and chart for the Relationship of Transported Particles.

Plate Tectonics Lab
Date Submitted: 2012-11-05
5 different activities that teach 9th graders about plate tectonics

Wave Properties Lab
Date Submitted: 2012-07-13
This could be set up as a stations lab, with each of the outlined activities as stations. Students travel from one station to another with lab sheet, and discuss/respond to each question. Materials are fairly easy to collect.

Topo Map Field Work
Date Submitted: 2012-06-30
I use this lab to have my students construct topo maps on our campus. The students walk a trail, record elevations and then use those elevations to construct a topo map. Make sure that you choose varied terrain for the best effect.
