Find out how much your lifestyle depends on mining. This is an interactive activity in which students select common household items and materials, such as mobile phones or carpet, to access facts about them.
Climate change is dramatically altering the Swiss Alps, where hundreds of bodies of water are being created by melting glaciers. Though the lakes can attract tourists and even generate electricity, local residents also fear catastrophic tidal waves.
"The big news from Google today was the release of Street View imagery for Mount Everest, Mount Aconcagua, Mount Elbrus, and Mount Kilimanjaro. Those are four of what are referred to by mountaineers as the Seven Summits."
This program documents the effects of the two earthquakes that rocked Christchurch in 2010 and 2011. Using dramatic footage captured within moments of both earthquakes, the film tracks the personal cost of one of New Zealand’s largest catastrophes.
For some people trivia isn't just a game, it's a way of life. Stat junkies and info nerds alike spend hours finding new minute details about places around the places, below the places, and sometimes even above the places.
Fifty million to 200 million years from now, geologists expect Earth's continents to smash together into one big supercontinent, just as they've done repeatedly in our planet's distant past — and a new computer model suggests that the Arctic Ocean...
This graphic displays the fluidity of the plate tectonic systems, and instead of thinking about what happened during the era of the dinosaurs, looking into the future provides an interesting perspective the dynamism of Earth systems (Disclaimer: this is one possibility on what might happen, there are other possible outcomes). In human geography, I use this map to discussion the concept of region: regions are not static, but the the Earth is put together is (sometimes literally) shifting beneath our feet.
"One of their lessons [in a series involving geologic sciences] involved teaching the kids about the structure of the Earth. One of her friends came up with the idea of presenting a model of the Earth made out of cake. So my sister asked me if I could make a spherical cake with all the layers of the Earth inside it."
"Many of us tend to think of Antarctica as a sheet of solid snow and ice. But, in contrast with its peer to the north, the southern pole's ice sheet lies atop a rocky continent. What are its features, its mountains and valleys, plains and coastlines?
A new dataset from the British Antarctic Survey provides the most detailed map ever of the bedrock below, information scientists hope will enable them to better model the affects of climate change on the ice, whose melting will have an impact on climate the world over."
Earthquakes happen around the world on a daily basis, every so often wreaking havoc on the regions they strike, killing hundreds of thousands of people, tearing down buildings, damaging infrastructure and triggering deadly tsunamis.
Pangaea - the idea of Pangaea and some of the evidence behind it...
This is a video produced by Khan Academy, which is a key resource and proponent for the 'flipped classroom.' While they do not have many human geography resources (math is their specialty) they do have several video designed for teaching physical geography including this one that covers
