2004 Asian Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster Project part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Cooperative Learning:Examples
Students are employees of a unit of the United Nations responsible for coordinating disaster relief after a major disaster (the 2004 Asian Earthquake and Tsunami) occurs. The agency needs to understand the ...

Discovering Plate Boundaries part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
Students work collaboratively using data maps to discover plate tectonic boundary processes. Data sets used are earthquakes, volcanos, seafloor age, and topography. The authors below have submitted variations of ...

Mercalli Earthquake Activity part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
A jigsaw process that allows students to analyze first person descriptions of earthquakes and assess several earthquake features.

Hypothesis Testing through Field Investigation of Mystery Mounds part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
Students formulate and test a hypothesis that addresses the potential processes involved in forming or subsequently shaping an unknown geomorphic feature, in this case mima mounds or patterned ground. Students gain ...

Physical Properties of Minerals and Determinative Techniques part of Cutting Edge:Mineralogy:Activities
This activity uses cooperative learning to identify minerals in hand sample based on physical properties. The "Jigsaw" pedagogy upon which this lab is based provides the environment for four succeeding ...

Metropolitan Museum of Art: Earth Materials and Ancient Cultures part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Activities
Students investigate properties of earth materials through the lens of art and archeology. It allows ties to other required core curriculum courses (particularly classics and art history), and integrates the use of ...

Exploring Soil Development & Conservation of Mass part of Cutting Edge:Geomorphology:Activities
This activity aims to develop understanding of soil formation using the principles of conservation of mass. This is best applied to a chronosequence of 2 soils/deposits, such as a set of terraces or glacial ...

Mars Landing Site Selection: An exercise in reading geologic maps and other geologic data sets part of Cutting Edge:Discoveries from Mars:Activities
Students use available Mars data to select the next rover landing sites, given appropriate engineering, geologic and biologic constraints. -

Exploring phyllosilicate structures with polyhedral models part of Cutting Edge:Mineralogy:Activities
In this exercise, students build polyhedral models to learn about phyllosilicate structures and how they relate to physical properties. This directed-discovery activity is a very 'hands-on' experience ...

Accuracy, Precision, and Topographic Data part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching the Methods of Geoscience:Activities
This jigsaw style exercise challenges new geomorphology students to collect topographic data and analyze its accuracy and precision.
