Roots of the Mariana Arc
Plumb the depths of the Submarine Ring of Fire and explore seismic waves with this lesson. Junior geologists simulate s-waves and p-waves, calculate their speeds, and then apply the data to discover the material that makes up inner Earth. Detailed directions, student handouts, and internet resources provide everything you need to present a memorable lesson on seismology.

A Rock Cycle Shower
Students classify rocks as sedimentary, igneous or metamorphic based on physical properties. For this earth science lesson, students recreate the rock cycle using a set of stones placed on labeled shower curtain. They explain the different stages involved in the cycle.
6th - 8th Science
The Great Heat Escape
Students design and conduct an experiment to determine the thermal conductivity of certain materials. For this earth science lesson, students relate how thermal conductivity varies with snow composition. They collect data from their experiment and present their findings in class.
