Polar Misunderstandings: Earth's Dynamic Dynamo
DiSpezio, Michael A.
Science Scope, v35 n2 p16-19, 21 Oct 2011
This article discusses the movement of Earth's north and south poles. The Earth's poles may be a bit more complex and dynamic than what many students and teachers believe. With better understanding, offer them up as a rich landscape for higher-level critical analysis and subject integration. Possible curriculum tie-ins include magnets, Earth history, global climate change, navigation, convection, auroras, and Earth's interior structure. Exploring the poles is an opportunity not to be overlooked, especially from the comfort and warmth of a classroom. (Contains 4 figures and 4 resources.)
