River Rock Identification part of Teaching in the Field:Field Trip Collection
River Rock Identification: Laura Triplett, Gustavus Adolphus College Intended Audience: I use this in an upper-level geomorphology course that is required for geology and environmental studies majors, so many of ...
Simulating Satellite Orbits and Atmospheric Drag part of Teaching Materials Collection
Physics students are intrigued by activities in space. To link this natural curiosity with solid problem-solving skills, we developed a spreadsheet simulation for satellites moving through an atmosphere of variable ...
Lower Atmosphere Temperature Profile part of Teaching Materials Collection
Challenge students to measure the temperature profile of the lower atmosphere
Modeling Glacier Dynamics with Flubber part of Teaching Materials Collection
We created a hands-on activity for middle and high school students that describes glacier mass balance in a changing climate. The students make a glacier using glue, water and detergent ("flubber") and ...
Pressure-melting of ice: demonstration part of Teaching Materials Collection
Pressure-melting of ice, which is responsible for many aspects of glacier-bed process, is demonstrable in a standard class period at effectively no cost of time or $.
Better Field Instruction by using Jigsaw Groups part of Teaching Materials Collection
Jigsaw groups places field site students in active, shared responsiblity, collaboration as they infer the concepts previously chosen and supported by their instructor.
Understanding the Carbon Cycle: A Jigsaw Approach part of Teaching Materials Collection
In this "jigsaw" exercise, each student is assigned one of five geochemical processes in the carbon cycle to research, fully understand, and then explain to others in groups of five. At the end of class ...
The Quaternary Glacio-Fluvial History of the Upper Midwest Using Anaglyph Stereo Maps part of Teaching Materials Collection
Students examine the anaglyph stereo map (with red/cyan glasses) and use textures to generate a surficial geology map of the Upper Midwest. They can then interpret the textures in terms of landforms, geomorphic ...
Gold: Its impact on South Africa part of Teaching Materials Collection
Analyzing Reflectance Spectra of Minerals and Planetary Surfaces part of Teaching Materials Collection
Students practice using the ALTA® II reflectance spectrometers by completing Treiman's "Activity 3 Taking a Reflectance Spectrum" from the Lunar and Planetary Institute's ALTA® Reflectance ...
