"The Layers of the Earth - fun infographic" I'm going to say this is geography because it is just so darn cute. This is actually a great picture of the layers of the Earth and I shall use resource one day.

Study calls for changes to geology books in light of new simulations

The new models have revealed that ancient events may have left deep 'scars' that can trigger changes at the surface – including the folding, breaking, or flowing of the crust in tectonic plates.

A Simple Wilson Cycle The Opening and Closing of An Ocean Basin The Wilson cycle begins in Stage A with a stable continental craton. A hot spot (not present in the drawings) rises up under the craton, heating it, causing it to swell upward, stretch and thin like taffy, crack, and finally split into two pieces. This process not only splits a continent in two it also creates a new divergent plate boundary. Stage B - the one continent has been separated into two continents, east and west, and a…

How Mountains are Formed - Lesson

Students investigate how mountains are formed. Concepts include the composition and structure of the Earth's tectonic plates and tectonic plate boundaries, with an emphasis on plate convergence as it relates to mountain formation. Students learn that geotechnical engineers design technologies to measure movement of tectonic plates and mountain formation, as well as design to alter the mountain environment to create safe and dependable roadways and tunnels.

In this science project we are going to make a cut out model of a volcano. Using just a computer printer, scissors, and some glue we will make a realistic looking model of volcano. We will also learn a bit about the science of volcanics! 6th Grade Science, Middle School Science, Science Fair, Science Lessons, Science For Kids, Science Classroom, Teaching Science, Science Education, Science Activities
