Drum Roll Please Activity
This activity develops the real-world connections and relationships between the rock properties found in Lesson 5 and the important engineering properties for designing and building caverns (or tunnels, mines, building foundations, etc.). The student teams will use importance factors called "desirability points" to mathematically determine the overall best rocks to build caverns within.
Students learn about the structure of the earth and how an earthquake happens. In one activity, students make a model of the earth including all of its layers. In a teacher-led demonstration, students learn about continental drift. In another activity, students create models demonstrating the different types of faults.
In this video segment from Wide Angle, learn about the fence that is part of the border security system between Botswana and Zimbabwe.

Cash Flow Statements - Quiz
How much do you know about cash flow statements?
These scenes show the city of Philadelphia as seen by the Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) instrument. The river running through the city is the Delaware which defines the boundary between New Jersey and Pennsylvania. In the larger city area image, north is approximately up. The river runs south. Just near the top of the image, upstream of the city and where the Delaware River turns west is the New Jersey city of Trenton. The shortwave infrared (TM band 5), infrared (TM band 4), and visible green (T

Food Vocabulary (Irish) Quiz 4
The pupil will revise the theme of Food. Written questions will be used to assess the understanding of the pupil. The pupil will be able to correct themselves. The pupil will use interactive resources to encourage reading.
NeuroLogic Exam: Introduction: "x" Values
So far we have a handle on the vertical localization within the neuroaxis but we have a very flat, one-dimensional structure. We need to have a way to come up with "x" values. Let's rotate the neuroaxis by 90 degrees so we can see it in the coronal plane. Now we can appreciate that most structures in the neuroaxis have a right, left or midline orientation on our "x" axis. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student m
Intravenous Pyelogram (IVP)
This patient education program reviews urinary tract anatomy and symptoms to explain what an intravenous pyelogram (IVP) involves, including the benefits and risks of this procedure. This is a MedlinePlus Interactive Health Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine, designed and developed by the Patient Education Institute.
Hurricane Gert from TRMM: September 16, 1999
A fly-in to Hurricane Gert on September 16, 1999, showing the three-dimensional structure of the precipitation as measured by the Precipitation Radar instrument on TRMM. In this animation, a surface of constant precipitation is colored by the value of the precipitation on the ground under the surface. The global cloud cover data was measured by GOES.
How Many Drops?
In this lesson and its associated activity, students conduct a simple test to determine how many drops of each of three liquids can be placed on a penny before spilling over. The three liquids are water, rubbing alcohol, and vegetable oil; because of their different surface tensions, more water can be piled on top of a penny than either of the other two liquids. However, this is not the main point of the activity. Instead, students are asked to come up with an explanation for their observations

The Magnetosphere - Earth Raises its Shields
A view of a computer-generated model of the Earth's magnetosphere. Semi-transparent surfaces represent particle density (red is high, blue is low) and silvery tubes represent the magnetic field lines. In this particular model, the solar wind has an ambient density of 8.35 particles-cm^3. The isosurfaces are then red (>17 particles-cm^3), yellow (>12 particles-cm^3), green (>8.6 particles-cm^3) and blue (<1.0 particle-cm^3).
