Lizards in Hurricanes

This activity explores images of anole lizards subjected to strong winds, which serve as phenomena for learning about natural selection and the impacts of extreme climate events.

Lizards in the Cold

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated how anole lizards may adapt to extremely cold temperatures.

Understanding Global Change

This interactive module allows students and educators to build models that explain how the Earth system works. The Click & Learn can be used to show how Earth is affected by human activities and natural phenomena.

Written in Chalk

This activity explores images of chalk formations and coccolithophores, which serve as phenomena for learning about the interactions between biological and geological processes.

Africa's Savanna Ecosystems

In this talk, ecologist Robert Pringle discusses how patterns and processes that occur in the savanna, a globally important biome, illustrate core concepts in ecology.

Animated Life: Pangea

This animated short video celebrates the early 20th-century German astronomer and atmospheric scientist Alfred Wegener, who first proposed that continents once formed a single landmass and had drifted apart.

Dodging Extinction

In this talk, biologist Anthony Barnosky discusses what steps can be taken to avoid a sixth mass extinction.

Earth Systems Activity

This activity guides students through building a conceptual model of how carbon dioxide affects Earth’s climate.

Plate Tectonics

This animation provides an overview of some basic concepts from plate tectonics, a fundamental theory in earth science.

Finding the Crater

This activity supports concepts covered in the film The Day the Mesozoic Died. Students will analyze geological evidence from ten different sites around the world to predict the location of the asteroid impact that caused the mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous Period.
