>> First off, thank you, Monica, for posting your Power Point presentations.
>> They will come in handy this year when I teach Earth science for the

>> Regarding session 4 and how to introduce plate tectonics to students so
>> they may learn from observation, I have 2 ideas.
>>
>> 1) Heat a pot of soup with crackers floating on top. Cover, or nearly
>> cover the surface with the crackers. Observe the crackers move relative
>> to one another as the soup heats and bubbles.
>>
>>
>> 2) Observe a pond with lily pads floating on it. Turn on the fountain
>> or
>> toss in a stone to see how the postions of the lily pads are affected.
>>
>> While these suggestions may simulate how the tectonic plates shift
>> relative to one another, I am not sure what to suggest to represent the
>> composition of the mantle.
>>
>> Any other ideas?
