Iceland's Volcanic Rivers

Iceland's Volcanic Rivers | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it
Time and time again, we're reminded of nature's beauty. It's hard to believe, but these photos of real landscapes, not abstract paintings.

 

Andre Ermolaev, through his photography has captured the beauty of Iceland's geomorphology.  Being on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Iceland has abundant volcanic ash which adds rich color to the fluvial systems.

Cam E's curator insight, February 27, 2014 11:20 AM

Iceland is one of my favorite countries, and the place I most want to visit and would most likely move to if I had to leave the United States. The landscape is insanely beautiful and the population is extremely small, something I enjoy as I dislike cities and a high population density. Even the capital of Iceland looks akin to a relatively average fishing town in the Northern US or Canada, and the entire country has less people in it than any given state in the US.

Nature has an incredible way at depicting and displaying its true beauty to the rest of the world. These images captured by photographer Andre Ermolaev looks like something that would be captured at a museum opening displaying some remarkable pieces of abstract work. Though this may not be the case, it gives you the desire to want to travel and experience this for yourself.

Extreme Sports +Beautiful Landscapes

Beautiful physical geography and extreme sports with a video camera gives us a spectacular view of some glaciated valleys, cliff faces, fjords and mountainous terrain.

The extremity of wing-suiting over Switzerland embraces the natural beauty of its mountains and valleys. This sport is very dangerous and daring, but pays off in excitement and unbeatable views.

(Europe topic 3)

Though I probably won't ever do this in my lifetime, I can definitely say I can see the enjoyment of this extreme sport. Aside form the adrenaline rush, it would be like dropping yourself into a screen of Google Earth, like zooming in and scrolling as you glide into the valley. Being a firm believer in first-hand experience as the most effective learning strategy, calling this high-flying sport educational is safe (pun intended!) to say.

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, December 8, 2014 11:32 AM

There has never been a better way to show the physical geography of Norway. Extreme sports are interesting because alot of them are dependent on their surroundings. Rock climbing requires cliffs and mountains and Wing-suit flying is made alot more enjoyable with this kind of geography.

Plate Tectonics with Oreo Cookies

Plate Tectonics with Oreo Cookies | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it

The lithosphere (Earth's crust) is a hard, rigid plate on top of a softer molten layer known as the asthenosphere.  Sounds like an Oreo to me!  As a crude analogy that lets you bring food into the classroom, this lesson on plate boundaries sound like a winner.  Read this for an academic article on how to use Oreo's to teach about Earth's crust.

Geomorphology Game

"Kinetic City: Shape It Up"

 

What forces shape the Earth?  What timeframe is necessary to create these changes?  This is a powerful tool, especially for the elementary school and middle school teachers to use.

Mr. Twining's curator insight, November 25, 2014 4:11 PM

Geomorphology Game! Short, but very fun game that shows students how landscapes change over time and from a variety of geomorphological processes. This game could be really fun at any grade level I think. For older students it's really good to see how the same type of erosion, but over a longer time period can change the landscape even more.
