This physical model presented by Jeffrey S. Barker, Associate Professor of Geophysics, Pennsylvania State University. Starting Point page organized by R.M. MacKay.
Use a Slinky to show:P and S waves, Wave reflection, and Standing waves in interactive lecture demonstration. -

Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Mathematical and Statistical Models Examples
JAVA Applet and activity provided by Visual Entities. Starting Point page organized by R.M. MacKay.
Students vary the seismic P and S wave velocity through each of four concentric regions of Earth and match "data" for travel times vs. angular distance around Earth's surface from the source to ...

Looking into Earth with GIS (College Level) part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with GIS:Examples
Brian Welch
College-level adaptation of the Earth Exploration Toolbook chapter. Students work with a free GIS program, ArcVoyager SE, to explore earthquake data and plate tectonics. -

Geologic Mapping on Mars part of Cutting Edge:Discoveries from Mars:Activities
Germari De Villiers, Auburn University Main Campus
This lab acivity gives students the opportunity to choose an area to map (with tracing paper and coloured pencils) from among some varied Martian terrains. -

Mars Hydrologic Environments part of Cutting Edge:Discoveries from Mars:Activities
Arwen Vidal, University of Colorado at Boulder
This activity examines the nature of streams and basins at three locations on Mars. Originally meant for users with access to ArcGIS, the exercise can also be used in introductory geology courses using images ...

Comparative Planetary Geomorphology part of Cutting Edge:Discoveries from Mars:Activities
Jennifer Anderson, Winona State University
This is a laboratory exercise to introduce comparative planetary geomorphology by investigating common geologic features on the Earth, Moon, and Mars. -

Fracturing Demonstration using a Hydraulic Press part of Activities
James Harris, Millsaps College
This demonstration supplements investigation of the physical process of brittle deformation. A hydraulic press is used to fracture a core of the Yazoo Clay (Upper Eocene Jackson Group) of central Mississippi. The ...

Profiling Earth's Surface using GeoMapApp part of MARGINS Data in the Classroom:MARGINS Mini-Lessons
Laura Wetzel, Eckerd College
In this exercise, students relate large-scale features on Earth's surface to lithospheric plates, the underlying asthenosphere, earthquakes, and volcanoes. After creating a cross section showing elevation using GeoMapApp, students add additional features by hand.
