Presented by the US Geological Survey, The Chesapeake Meteor Web site chronicles the impact created by the meteor. The site explains how the sixth largest crater on earth was formed and also provides ten related lessons on its activities page. Educators will find lesson plans dealing with graded sediments and impact events, meteor showers, aquifers, Eocene astroblemes, seismographs, growing dinoflagellates, and more. Each contains simple directions, related questions, and other pertinent information in a very easy-to-follow format. The main attraction of the activities presented on the site are the unique topics covered that can help expand any "tired" geology or physical science curriculum.
