In this activity, students will gain an understanding of how geologists determine rates of sea floor spreading between two tectonic plates. Students will also gain experience applying some basic, useful mathematical concepts such as the calculation and use of velocities and conversion from one set of units to another.

An engineering and design lesson for middle school (our 7th grade standards).

In the aftermath of a natural disaster, can you engineer a device that will keep medicine within a 40-60°F range using natural resources from the biome you live in, and/or debris created by the disaster for three days, until the Red Cross can arrive?

You are a team of relief workers in __________________after a major earthquake/tsunami has occurred. Your team lead as just told you about a young women with diabetes has been injured and needs insulin to be delivered __________ miles away (no open roads). Your team will need to research, design, and build a portable device to keep the insulin between _____ and ______ °(F/C) for _____ days. Once you return you will present the effectiveness of your device to your lead and a team other relief workers showing your both your design/device and explaining the process.

This publication provides a series of short articles for students, teachers, and parents originally published as a weekly newspaper feature. Concepts introduced in each feature are designed to address state and national science education standards. Written by USGS scientists, the articles go beyond traditional textbook information to discuss state-of-the-art thinking and technology that we use today.

In this lesson, students will run the climate modeling software, Educational Global Climate Modeling Suite (EdGCM), to visualize how temperature and snow coverage might change over the next 100 years. They will begin by running a "control" climate simulation to establish a baseline for comparison. After this first simulation, they will run a second "experimental" simulation. Then they will compare and contrast the changes in temperature and snow and ice coverage that could occur due to increased atmospheric greenhouse gases. Next, students will choose a region of their own interest to explore and compare their modeling results with those documented in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) impact reports. Through working with EdGCM, they will gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the process and power of climate modeling.

In this activity, students use books and the Internet to gather data about earthquakes and how they affect people. Language arts skills help in researching, generating ideas and questions, and communicating and interpreting data. Math skills help in measuring and finding locations with coordinate map systems. Art skills are used to create foldable graphic organizers.

In this lesson, students learn about glacial and volcanic ffeatures by examining and comparing bathymetric and topographic images of the Sand Point area of Alaska. Students collect map evidence to determine which surface and seafloor features were formed by volcanoes and which were formed by glaciers.

In this lesson the students will become actively engaged by being a rock in the rock cycle. They will travel to different places and experience the different processes and events that can happen to a rock in the rock cycle.&nbsp;This lesson was developed by Richard Kidd as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program. This lesson plan has been vetted at the local and state level for standards alignment, Global Education focus, and content accuracy.
