Dive and Discover: Where's the Math?
Visit this site.
Go to the section called Deeper Discovery. Here you will find
"Infomods" on many subjects. In "Earths Anatomy,"
read about the layers of the Earth. Draw a diagram of the Earth,
from its crust to its inner core. Find the thickness of each layer.

are experiments in each of these subjects:
Mapping and Remote Sensing
