Wall-Building Stones
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Lab based on the the NIST Test Wall-Building Stones of the United States.

Settling Rates
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will investigate the effects of size, shape and density on the settling rates of objects. Students will use modeling clay and a plastic bead. Most of the "beads" will be created using the modeling clay.

Regents Questions
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Here are regents questions on the topic of Deposition, Erosion and Landscapes.

Virtual Field Trip To A Laccolith In Central Montana
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
This 30-45 minute activity allows students to explore Crown Butte, an interesting laccolith in Montana that exhibits fascinating examples of igneous geology. The experience helps students understand the role of the rock cycle in shaping of the surface.

Density Equation
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
A nice flash to help students learn the density equation.

The Egg Drop
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Your objective is to predict what an egg would do when placed in a column of different density liquids. Will your egg sink to the bottom of your column, float to the top, or end up somewhere in between?

Denstiy Of Solids
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will be able to calculate the densities of different materials and recognize that density is one of the most important properties of matter.

Density Of Liquids
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
In this lab, you will make some observations of floating objects, determine the density of 2 liquids, and examine some real life applications of what you have learned.

THE ELLIPSE
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
In this lab, you'll construct 2 ellipses, and examine and measure them to determine some of the fundamental properties of ellipses.

The Big Dipper In 3D
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Construct the Big Dipper and view this famous asterism from a galactic perspective.
