Dynamic Planet

Throughout this module, students will use hands-on, inquiry-based explorations to investigate:

  • how scientists make and use models.
  • what the inside of the Earth is like.
  • how the Earth's surface moves.
  • how mountains form.
  • what causes earthquakes.

Use the navigation on the right to explore resources that will be useful for the investigations.
