EARTH SYSTEM SCIENCE ACTIVITIES

For a wealth of educator resources on Earth System Science visit: DLESE — the Digital Library for Earth System Education. Funded by the National Science Foundation, DLESE is being built and distributed by a community of educators, students, and scientists to support Earth System education at all levels.

Resources include lesson plans, scientific data, visualizations, interactive computer models, and virtual field trips — in short, any web-accessible teaching or learning material. The Reviewed Collection includes those DLESE resources that have been more closely examined and are considered exemplary.
