General Exploring Earth Investigations by McDougal Littell Publishing - numerous online activities that use animations, interactive graphics, and imagery to help students gather information gleaned from lecture content Geology Lab Videos by Tom Braziunas at North Seattle Community College - students can view short video demonstrations of some of the physical geology lab activities Reynolds, et al. Paleomagnetic anomalies in oceanic and relative dating virtual lab crust are not assessed. Volcanic materials identification using photographs by Richard Harwood of Black Hawk College — students can identify volcanic material photographs based on property choices, self-checking.
Why do I have to complete a CAPTCHA?
This activity consists of 2 parts created by different entities. See topographic maps above for links to landform maps.
Contact us if you know of a suitable replacement. An interactive map where students can turn on and off features such as earthquakes, plate boundaries and names, faults, volcanoes, etc.
GSA supports On the Cutting Edge
The worksheet has labeled data tables used to organize and interpret the findings of the dig site simulation. Mineral identification and properties using photographs by Richard Harwood of Black Hawk College — students can identify minerals photographs based on mineral property choices.
The simulation has instructions on the left side of the screen with a bar that can be scrolled forward as you proceed. In addition, it also has investigations at the end of each chapter that could be used for online labs.
Sean Fox, Carleton College Reuse: Only the age of the rock layers and the Law of Superposition are addressed in this activity. Geologic Time Interpreting geologic sections more info through Athro, Limited — students can test their knowledge of principles of geologic time relative dating virtual lab animations.
Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for phenomena. This activity does not address any water patterns in each of the simulated dig sites and the ancient land would relate loosely to the layers in the simulated dig site. Metamorphic Rocks Metamorphic rock identification using photographs by Richard Harwood of Black Hawk College — students can identify metamorphic rock photographs based on rock property choices, self-checking.
This resource is explicitly designed to build towards this crosscutting concept. What would you like to search?
Metamorphic rock identification by Dave Jessey and Don Tarman through Cal State Pomona — students can use this site as a step-by-step tutorial to identify metamorphic rock samples. Patterns in rates of change and other numerical relationships can provide information about natural systems.
How can fossil and rock data determine when an organism lived?
Descriptions of each mineral include physical properties, crystallography information, common uses, and chemical formulas as well as pictures. Comments about Including the Crosscutting Concept The Data tables on the worksheet are a nice way to organize the fossils VS time period.
After this simulation have the students complete a lesson related what they have learned about the ages of the rocks and fossils, but adding in plate motions. Listed below are some what does we hook up mean lab activities that you might find useful as examples of others have used or even as lab activities to have your students do. MS-ESS Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, contintental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions.
