Created for high school students, this interactive Earth science visualization shows rocks at nine different scales, from a photograph of the Earth taken aboard Apollo 17, to an image of atoms created with an electron microscope. The site also provides views of continents, mountain ranges, rock formations, and minerals within a rock. The resource points out that by studying rocks at different scales, geologists can learn about Earth processes. Students are able to click on icons such as a satellite, airplane, and mountain to view a photograph of rocks at the indicated scale. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
