In the Classroom

Bring Earth Science into your class no matter what subject you teach. Earth Science has broad applications in almost all sciences and many other subject areas as we are connected to the Earth. Use the information, videos, and pictures to create discussions and inquire about topics in your classroom. Many of the activities in "For Educators and Students" are great for demonstrations and generating interest in phenomenon. For example, use Sinkholes in a Cup to demonstrate how fast removal of groundwater in an area can cause sinkholes. Follow this demonstration with Google Earth, reviewed here, layers that show this phenomenon in various areas of the world or research of where these have occurred. Find videos, large-scale maps, and other resources to share via an interactive whiteboard, wiki, or blog.

Students can create public service announcements about earth science issues to raise awareness and provide learning opportunities to others.
