It's About Time


Investigating Earth Systems approaches Earth System Science through problem-solving, with community-based models that are hands-on and inquiry-driven. In this module, students will investigate: the kinds of materials in soil, the arrangement of soil materials, the amount of water the soil can hold, how water flows through soil, and how soil is eroded.
