Red Beans and Rice: Slope failure experimental modeling part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Geomorphology:Activities
Students replicate a slope failure experiment published in Science (Densmore et al., 1997) using a simple, acrylic slope failure box in an effort to forge a link between autocyclic processes, long-term landscape ...
Greenhouse Effect Lab part of Cutting Edge:Teaching Activities
In this lab, students measure temperature changes inside soda bottles (one with CO2 added, the other with only air inside) as incandescent light is shined on them to model the Greenhouse Effect.
Building Blocks part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Environmental Geology:Activities
In association with rock and mineral ID tables, this lab introduces students to basic rocks and minerals via grouping and comparison, rather than as individual samples. I use this lab in my environmental geology ...
Who Polluted Surface and Groundwater in This Place? part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities
Students use water-well data and geology to determine which site caused groundwater and surface-water contamination.
Sand Analysis Lab Activity part of Cutting Edge:Environmental Geology:Activities
An in-class introductory level activity for science and non-science majors that explores the properties of sand in order to identify depositional environments.
Using the pH Scale and Carbonic Acid Formation to Understand the Effect of Ocean Acidification on Organisms with Calcium Carbonate Shells. part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching about Risk and Resilience:Activities
In this lab activity students use the pH scale and the reaction of carbon dioxide with water to understand ocean acidification and make predictions regarding the effect of ocean acidification on marine organisms by experimentally determining the effect of pH of calcite dissolution.
Using Differing Substrates to Track Their Effectiveness in Neutralizing Acid Deposition part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching Environmental Justice: Interdisciplinary Approaches:Activities
The overall point of this assignment is to recognize what type of natural and human made structures can protect us from the affects of acid rain.
Testing alkalinity in water systems (simulation) part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This investigation is a laboratory activity in which the alkalinity of 2 types of substrates (carbonate vs. non-carbonate) are compared on the basis of titration. Students will reflect on the relationship of alkalinity and toxic heavy metals.
Where shall we go swimming? part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a water study investigation showing how biotic and abiotic factors are influenced by human activity.
Acid-Base Titration of an Eggshell part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is acid-base titration lab where students determine the percent of calcium carbonate in an eggshell.
