This hands on activity is sure to get the creativity flowing! I could use this to teach plate tectonics, topics on topography, or use it as a fun reward.

This animation is a wonderful tutorial which helps to explain the concetp of SP lag time.  I could ask students to view this website over the weekend before we do a lab on calculating S and P waves.

I could use Google Earth in the classroom to help students visualize topography.  Excellent tool to make traveling the world (class trips) more accessible.

Virtual Museum of Fossils

Added 11/07/2012

This website can be used to assist students in mastering the Geologic time scale.  I would use this in my class by making up a scavenger hunt, and students would have to find the correct geologic time period for a certain organism.!
