Earth Science Education
U.S. Geological Survey
The Official Website for NASA's Earth Science Enterprise
"...dedicated to understanding the total Earth system and the effects of humans on the global environment."
Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE)
"Resources in DLESE include lesson plans, scientific data, visualizations, interactive computer models, and virtual field trips - in short, any web-accessible teaching or learning material. Many of these resources are organized in collections, or groups of related resources that reflect a coherent, focused theme. In many ways, digital collections are analogous to collections in traditional bricks-and-mortar libraries."
Dive and Discover: Expeditions to the Seafloor
"...an interactive distance learning Web site designed to immerse you in the excitement of discovery and exploration of the deep seafloor. Dive and Discover brings you right on board a series of research cruises to the Pacific and Indian Oceans, and gives you access to the latest oceanographic and deep submergence research as it happens! Be at the front line of scientific inquiry and join scientists - geologists, geophysicists, chemists and biologists - who are exploring the seafloor and making amazing deep-sea discoveries. Daily updates, photos, videos, and e-mail correspondence with scientists aboard research vessels allow you to follow the progress of the scientific mission and find out about life on the floating laboratories at sea."
By Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution & the National Science Foundation
"Earth, marine, and environmental science resources for teachers and students."
"We are part of the California Space Institute at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and our web site is created by a dynamic team of undergraduate students at the University of California San Diego. The site that originally grew out of my concept for a new kind of classroom resource continues to grow, driven by community teaching needs and the creative ideas of student interns. Earthguide is our central website and holds project-specific modules and general information."
"Since 1967, we have linked science, economics and law to create innovative, equitable and cost-effective solutions to society's most urgent environmental problems."
Sections include: Action Center ; Biodiversity ; Climate Change ; Health ; Oceans ; Library.
Exploring the Environment (ETE)
"The ETE online series, which features an integrated approach to environmental earth science through modules and activities, is developed at the NASA Classroom of the Futureô; at Wheeling Jesuit University."
Resources for both students and teachers.
Geology of the Grand Canyon
Sections include: How Was it Formed? ; Where Did all the Rock Come From? ; Why Does it Look Like it Does? ; When Did All this Happen?

Global Warming: Early Warning Signs
"...a science-based world map depicting the local and regional consequences of global climate change. The map was produced as a collaborative project by several environmental organizations, and has been peer-reviewed by scientists."
National Park Service - Acid Rain Lesson Plan
"...an effort to increase the public's awareness of air quality issues has developed a series of five activities for elementary and secondary schools. The activities are for grades six through eight and help teach students about Acid Rain."
"Discover the natural world and the connections that make nature work in this 16-part series for students in grades 3-6."
