A Traverse Through Time and Space: A Paleoenvironmental Analysis of Devonian Strata in New York State
Tara Curtin, Hobart & William Smith Colleges
This is a field-based mini-project that requires students to synthesize their field data to 1) determine the depositional environments both across New York State (from the Catskills, NY to Rochester, NY) during ...
Field Trip to Enfield Glen, NY Finger Lakes Region
Alexandra Moore, Cornell University-Endowed Colleges
This is a 2.5 hour field trip in which students search through strata of the Upper Devonian Catskill Delta for paleocurrent indicators that allow them to infer paleogeographic differences between Devonian and ...
Field Exercise in Stratigraphy/Paleoecology
David Sunderlin, Lafayette College
This field activity for GEOL 320 "Paleobiology" is designed to turn what could have been a "look-and-see" fossil collecting trip into one where genuinely interesting hypotheses/questions are ...
Sedimentary Petrology Field Trip to Gravel Quarry near Rotterdam Junction, NY
Dr. Paul Ryberg, Clarion University of Pennsylvania
Sedimentary Petrology: one field trip involves visiting an exceptional glacial outwash gravel quarry, where students measure, identify and count clast types, measure cross-bedding directions, and examine the early ...
Mapping of LSU Field Camp
Dan Kelley, Bowling Green State University-Firelands
This is a one week mapping exercise of the exposed bedrock geology of the 1400 acre Charles Barney Geology Field Camp owned by the Department of Geology & Geophysics at Louisiana State University. It is ...
Understanding Geologic Maps
Cara Burberry, University of Nebraska at Lincoln
Exercise in deconstructing a geologic map & writing a geologic history of the area.
Samantha Hopkins, University of Oregon
This is a laboratory exercise has students make inferences about function from skeletal morphology. It uses data collection, quantitative reasoning, and hypothesis testing.
Marine Oxygen Isotopes and Changes in Global Ice Volume
Ben Laabs, SUNY College at Geneseo
Students explore marine oxygen-isotope data from cores collected by the Ocean Drilling Program. The activity gives students access to real paleoclimate data, develops their skills in organizing and graphing data, ...
Make a Model Fossil
Anne E. Flynn St. Charles Borromeo School St. Anthony Village Minnesota Based on an original activity from Harcourt Science 2006. Page 215
This activity is a combination outdoor/indoor lab where students will collect natural materials from the environment and use them to create both a mold and cast model of a fossil. Students will learn how a fossil is formed and why scientists use models to help them understand how things work and develop.
Half Life Model
David N. Steer (email@example.com)and Kyle Gray (firstname.lastname@example.org), University of Akron This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. GEO-0506518.
While working in groups to facilitate peer tutoring, students manipulate a hands-on, physical model to better comprehend the nature of half life. Students use the model to simulate the decay of radionuclides. The ...
