Getting to the Hows and Whys of Earth Science

Lessons that get Students to Higher Levels of Thinking

I believe that learning happens when we are engaged, have problems to solve, and our thinking is challenged.

My goal with this site is to help other Earth Science teachers find and create new activities that will help students to a higher level of thinking and bring hands-on and practical application to their classroom.

Finding, Adjusting, and Creating New and Engaging Activities

Below are links to some of the demos and lessons that I have either found and adjusted or created myself. Please take the ideas that you like, adjust them to your class and teaching style, and have fun with them.
