In this lesson, students are introduced to the properties of electromagnetic radiation. Students create a “Quipo,” a method used by the ancient Incas. Students are also encouraged to use an electronic bulletin board to communicate with each other, post insights, ideas, evidence, and questions on electromagnetic radiation. As part of this activity, students will conduct a mock trial placing the different types of electromagnetic radiation on trial.

The purpose of this lesson plan is to expose students to the breadth and depth of the Internet while they search for data pertaining to the world's volcanic and seismic activity. They then compile the data on a world map and make scientific inferences on the location of plate boundaries. Further investigation involves upper level students in the identification of boundary interaction. The lesson can be extended to include a comparison of stationary volcanic activity on Mars to that of dynamic volcanic activity of the Pacific Plate on Earth.
