Exploring the Solar System, the Galaxies, and the Universe with the Hubble Space Telescope part of Teacher Preparation:Resource Collections:Activities
The Hubble Telescope site (http://hubblesite.org) contains numerous teaching tools including videos, news articles about the solar system and the Universe, and games that introduce and reinforce astronomy and space science content and concepts. Teachers can design activities for multiple grade levels using the site as a foundation.
Accessible Solar System on a String part of Teacher Preparation:Resource Collections:Activities
Explore the solar system using your senses.
Density of Rocks - Some Applications part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
This module studies some applications of being able to determine the density of rocks.
The Floating Lithosphere - Isostacy part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Students are asked to numerically and then analytically determine the relations governing the depth of compensation.
Pressure Melting of Ice: While-U-Wait part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
In this demonstration, students get to witness pressure melting and regelation first-hand. A weight is suspended via a thin wire over an ice cube. Over the course of the course of the demonstration, the wire ...
An exploration of spring systems: Asking and answering quantitative questions part of Teaching Resources:Quantitative Writing:Examples
Laboratory activity on springs and simple harmonic motion that encourages creative development of experiments and clear presentation of quantitative results in the form of a memo.

Conservation of angular momentum...see it, feel it, a simple, seat of the pants demonstration part of Process of Science:Examples
Students explore angular momentum using a rotating chair and their own bodies.
How to use the HR diagram part of Process of Science:Examples
Astronomy students learn how to use the Hertsprung-Russel diagram by plotting stellar data. HR diagram then reveals evolutionary stage of stars.
Using an Observatory Project to Develop Professional Communication in Astronomy part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Professional Communications Projects:Examples
This is a comprehensive project using the Highland Road Park Observatory camera. This project encompasses the formal portions for both written and spoken communication, and carries 55% of the course credit.
Using Learning Assistants to Support Peer Instruction with Classroom Response Systems ("Clickers") part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Learning Assistants:Examples
Learning Assistants are used to facilitate student discussion in peer instruction during clicker questions (i.e., classroom response systems), by asking Socratic questions, emphasizing reasoning, and probing student thinking.
Using Learning Assistants in Recitation Tutorials part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Learning Assistants:Examples
Undergraduate Learning Assistants can be used to supplement the instructor and/or Teaching Assistant during recitations. They may help facilitate productive group work on tutorial activities designed to help ...
