Just Submitted Earth Science Files

Below are a listing of files that have been recently submitted. They are in order of newest to oldest. There are 490 files.

The Earth's Plates
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Here are a few nice USGS maps that might be useful. I copied the maps onto transparencies and created a lab where students ultimately overlaid the transparencies to compare and contrast the locations of earthquakes, volcanoes, and plate boundaries.

Rules Of The Road Cut
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Help students determining the "order of events" in Earth's history. Link to a powerpoint presentation included.

Radioactive Decay
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Radioisotope decay can be a hard concept to grasp due to its abstract nature. Therefore I suggest we use analogies to teach these topics turning them into "hands on" activities.

Online Fossil Lab
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students explore an online fossil dig to find out more about the history of life on Earth.

Modeling Time
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Earth History Intro: In this investigation you start by estimating familiar units of time and then develop a model for larger units.

Bedrock Correlation
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
In this lab you will correlate nine different outcrops from the area around Lake Cayuga to develop a complete 14 inch thick model of the rock layers (or STRATIGRAPHIC COLUMN) of the Devonian in that area. Modified from Nancy Spaulding's original.

Who's On First
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
In this activity, students begin a sequencing activity with familiar items, letters written on cards. Once they are able to manipulate the cards into the correct sequence, they are asked to do a similar sequencing activity using fossil pictures.

Regents Questions
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Here are regents questions for Earth's History. I separated these into multiple choice and short answer.
