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 497 files.

Earthquake Patterns Lab
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will investigate worldwide patterns of earthquakes and determine the relationship of these patterns to types of plate boundaries.

Analysis Of A NYS Earthquake
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will analyze a New York State earthquake that happened April 20th, 2002.

Tsunami Labs
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
In this lab you'll study seismograms from 3 different seismic stations recording the magnitude 9.0 Sumatra earthquake of 12/26/2004. By comparing the arrival times of waves on each seismogram, you'll be able to determine distance to the epicenter.

Regents Questions
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Here are regents questions for Plate Tectonics.

World Map (Mercator)
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.

The Earth's Plates

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.
