Title: Astro-Venture Geology Educators' Guide
Url: http://astroventure.arc.nasa.gov/teachers/geo_train.html
Publisher: United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Description: This is the third of four curriculum guides focusing on astrobiology and careers. Students are confronted with the challenge of searching for and designing a planet that would be habitable to humans. Using an online, multimedia module, students make changes to the Earth-s interior and draw conclusions about which factors are necessary for human survival. Students then engage in classroom activities that explore the effects of heat and pressure on states of matter, density and movement through convection. They further explore the resulting process of plate tectonics and volcanoes and the role these play in the carbon cycle. Finally, students investigate the Earth-s magnetic field and connect their learning to the systems they explored in Astronomy and Atmospheric Sciences.
