Earth Science

Earth science (also known as geoscience, the geosciences or the Earth sciences), is an all-embracing term for the sciences related to the planet Earth.
  • Stellarium - This program provides great images for students to view. They will be able to learn about the components of the Earth. This can be done after downloading the program to your computer.
  • WorldWide Telescope - This database from Microsoft has tons of images that allows for students to learn about the many components of space. The students will gain interest into the topic of Earth Science after a few images are looked at.
  • MSA's Rock'n Internet Site - Mineral Identification- This website is in a way geared toward younger students, but has the content needed for lower level Earth Science students. The students can use this website in helping identify the most common minerals found in and around Earth. They will then begin to understand how Geologist do these same techniques in laboratories.
  • Geology Labs On-Line- A great website that contains tutorials about earthquakes, flooding, and radiocarbon dating. The students get to work through these like they are actual Geologist. In the earthquake example, the students get to determine the epicenter of an index earthquake by taking the same steps that a professional takes in a modified version.
  • Virtual Courseware - Home- This website also has many tutorials for students to work through like things that affect global warming. There are also different things for students to use to learn about why different climates exist around the Earth.
  • Google Earth - This website is a great place to show students the Earth in 3D. Students will be able to see the the areas in which they live and the land masses that surround them and other areas of the world. This is a great tool to help students be able to relate to the world around them! To use this program, you must first download the components to your computer.
