Whose Fault Is It Anyway? part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Games:Examples
This game has students simulate the propagation of P and S waves after an earthquake and to use the lag between these to determine where in the simulation the earthquake occurred. -

Subject: Geoscience: Environmental Science:Natural Hazards:Earthquakes, Geoscience:Geology

Half Life Model part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
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 ...

How Many Is A Million? part of Cutting Edge:Topics:Rates and Time:Visualizations with Teaching Notes
Roger Steinberg, Department of Natural Sciences, Del Mar College Description To help students visualize the immensity of geologic time, or even the immensity of just one million years, I have created a very large ...

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Geology:Historical Geology

Weathering Experiment part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Introductory Courses:Activities
This project has students dirty several dishes equally and design experiments to determine which analogs of geologic processes are most efficient for removing the baked-on food. Students calculate rates of ...

Igneous Rocks Model part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
While working in groups to facilitate peer tutoring, students use samples of four igneous rocks (gabbro, basalt, granite, and rhyolite) to observe differences in texture, color and grain size and make inferences ...

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Geology:Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology:Igneous Rocks

Earthquake Demonstration part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience: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 ...

Subduction Zone Earthquakes part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
While working in groups to facilitate peer tutoring, students manipulate a hands-on, physical model to better comprehend several characteristics of subduction zone earthquakes. -

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Geology:Geophysics:Seismology, Geoscience:Geology:Tectonics, Environmental Science:Natural Hazards:Earthquakes

Crystallization from Melt Demonstration part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
This demonstration uses melted phenyl salicylate to show how crystals nucleate and grow as the temperature of the liquid melt decreases. -

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Geology:Mineralogy:Crystal Chemistry, Geoscience:Geology:Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology:Igneous Processes

Using Melting Ice to Teach Radiometric Dating part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Students are challenged to a Sherlock Holmes-style mystery in which they construct their own decay curves of melting ice to determine time-zero.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Geology:Historical Geology, Geochemistry:Radioisotopes

Exploring Radiometric Dating with Dice part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
An activity in which students use dice to explore radioactive decay and dating and make simple calculations.
