Eighth Grade Science Classroom
Students spent the several days working with the CD ROM,
Our Dynamic Planet,
created at UC Santa Barbara by Dr. William Prothero. The students used
the "Profile Game" to identify unknown features. Above left is a profile
drawn across an island. The students investigated unknown features using
the programs' tools.
Above left is a profile across a ridge. To the right is an
oblique view of a depression. The Our Dynamic Planet software has many
useful tools. The students are able to investigate applications of the
software using views of Earth features in various orientations.
