To understand the concept of continental drift and island formation as a result of plate movement and hotspots, students calculate the rate of movement of the Hawaiian islands during their geologic history
Students explore the early atmosphere and how organisms contributed oxygen via photosynthesis. They also watch a video and do some textual analysis about fossils as remains of living organisms from the past
A watershed is a drainage basin that collects all the water falling into a specific area, and there are very specific factors that affect the rate at which water collects in streams, as well as the formation of stream features
In this lesson, I give an overview on how I plan for, implement, and analyze assessment data from my class. We start with assessment creation - how do you (or where do you) come up with questions, and how do you organize them to make a cohesive assessment?
Radioactive decay is a process of observing recurring half-lives in radioactive substances, and this process can be modeled directly by using (delicious) M&Ms to represent the process of radioactive decay.
