Magma Viscosity Demos part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples
This is an interactive lecture where students answer questions about demonstrations shown in several movie files. They learn to connect what they have learned about molecules, phases of matter, silicate crystal structures, and igneous rock classification with magma viscosity, and to connect magma viscosity with volcano explosiveness and morphology.

Earthquake Demonstration part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
This demonstration uses an "earthquake machine" constructed from bricks, sand paper, and a winch, to simulate the buildup of elastic strain energy prior to a seismic event and the release of that energy during an earthquake.

Combustion/Pollution part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students observe a burning candle and the byproducts given off through the burning process. This observation leads to a discussion to the effects of air pollution on our lives.

Subject: Environmental Science:Air Quality, Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Meteorology:Air quality

How Does Water Get Polluted? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a hands-on modeling of the effects of pollution on our ground and surface water. Students will observe and record their observations as pollution is placed on the ground in their model and it is rained upon.

Subject: Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity:Non-Point Source Pollution, Geoscience

Nature Stories: Promoting Environmental Awareness through Culture and Exploration. part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity uses a cultural story to excite kinesthetic homework, nature journaling and daily adventure in a child's own back yard or kitchen flower pot.

Subject: Geoscience, Environmental Science, Biology:Plant Biology, Diversity
