The Unusual Formation of the Hawaiian Islands
9 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
How are the Hawaiian Islands different from other island chains? Discover the surprising geologic history of Hawaii with a video from a cool physics playlist. The narrator takes a hike with some geologists and discusses mantle plume...
Rock Cycle in the Lab: Earth Products and the Processes that Link Them
6th - 9th
Middle school geologists will rock at the rock cycle, thanks to this activity. Partners examine images of rock formations, then work together to link them to the process that created them and the timeframe in which the process happened....
Earthquakes and Volcanoes Post Assessment
6th CCSS: Adaptable
The final lesson in the 20-part series is a post assessment covering earthquakes and volcanoes. Twenty-three questions incorporate each of the previous lessons through multiple choice, justified multiple choice, expanded multiple choice,...
Plate Tectonics Cycle — Sixth Grade
Four resources make up a collection that breaks down each part of the plate tectonic cycle, developed by Math/Science Nucleus. With pre- and post-labs, discussion topics, and writing assignments, sixth graders take on a hands-on approach to understanding the Plate Tectonics Cycle.
Volcanoes: First Grade Lesson Plans and Activities
1st CCSS: Adaptable
Introduce young geologists to types of volcanoes during the pre-lab. First graders explore how different liquids flow with an experiment on viscosity to simulate how different types of lava flow. Next, they learn about the parts of a...
Volcanoes: Second Grade Lesson Plans and Activities
2nd CCSS: Adaptable
Young geologists explore volcanoes with a series of engaging geology activities. First, they learn the difference between magma and lava before coloring and labeling the parts of a volcano. During the lab, individuals watch a...
Hazards: Third Grade Lesson Plans and Activities
3rd CCSS: Adaptable
Learners discover hazards related to volcanoes and predict the effects these hazards have on people and land. As blossoming geologists explore various volcanic eruptions, including the hazards associated with them, they create their own...
Volcanoes: Third Grade Lessons Plans and Activities
3rd CCSS: Adaptable
Discover how rocks are formed from volcanoes during a geology pre-lab activity. Third graders describe the volcanic rock samples and creating a model of Mt. Lassen, located in California. The lesson culminates in a discussion about how...
