Activities

Earth science is about active exploration! Here you'll find everything you need to set learning in motion in your classroom.

Because reading skills are crucial for your students, you'll want to look over the Literacy Strategies section. Your students can learn more about geoscience through classroom investigations -- hands-on activities that meet national science standards -- or through "citizen geoscience" activities that your students can do at home.

You can build excitement and foster additional learning opportunities through science fair projects, field trips, and contests. See the links below for ideas, step-by-step instructions, and search for K-5 activities.
