Earth System Science Unit Overview
Erin Bardar; Nick Haddad
The lab activities in this module were adapted by Erin Bardar of TERC for the EarthLabs project. These activities are based on the Exploring the Connections activities in the Earth as a System chapter of the GLOBE ...

Using GLOBE Data to Study the Earth System
Nick Haddad; Tamara Ledley, TERC
DATA: Student-collected environmental data TOOL: GLOBE Online Graphing Tool - Explore, graph, and compare data from the GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment) Program.

Volcanic Ejecta from Sunset Crater
Steven Semken, Arizona State University at the Tempe Campus
Students are provided with equations and geological data to estimate the velocities and impact effects of volcanic bombs that were ejected during the last eruption of Sunset Crater, a young cinder cone volcano in ...

The Epicenter of a Southwestern Earthquake
Steven Semken, Arizona State University at the Tempe Campus; Tracy Perkins, South Mountain Community College
This activity guides students to use the measured difference in P and S wave velocities to locate the epicenter of a minor earthquake in the Southwestern United States. Click here to view the full activity on the ...

Abrupt climate change, greenhouse gases, and the bipolar see-saw
Kathleen Johnson, University of California-Irvine
In this activity, students work with paleoclimate proxy data (d18O, CH4, CO2)from the Byrd and GISP2 ice cores. Students prepare a graph of paleoclimate data and use the graph to answer several questions about the ...

Take A Hike Assignment
Anne Jefferson, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
Students are assigned to take a hike in a location of their choice and write a concise summary of their observations of Earth Science features and processes. This assignment is used near the end of an Earth Systems ...

Problem-Based Learning: UV Menace
Rebecca Teed, Wright State University-Main Campus
Students work as a team to determine the causes, effects, and solutions to ozone depletion. They work out what they need to know, and split the team up to research different parts of the issue. -

Coastal Management case study
Anne Jefferson, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
After being presented with lecture material on coastal processes and engineering structures, students have small group discussions of a case study on whether a terminal groin should be built on a barrier island on ...

Yellowstone Fires
Rebecca Teed, Wright State University-Main Campus
This module enables students to take a problem-based learning approach to wildfires, in particular whether a "let-it-burn" policy makes sense in Yellowstone National Park. -

Global Phosphorus Cycle
Kirsten Menking, Vassar College
Students create and modify a STELLA model of the global phosphorus cycle to test a number of scenarios.
