October 13-19 is Earth Science Week. The theme for the celebration is “Mapping Our World.” On this site from the American Geosciences Institute, you'll find a wealth of resources for celebrating Earth Science Week, complete with educational materials. Teachers will find classroom activities, information on contests and Earth Science Week events, and ideas for exploring earth science topics in the classroom and outdoors. The student section offers resources for K-12 and college students, information on earth science careers, a webquest, images, and more. Each day of the week has a different theme. There are nine big ideas presented along with activities that support each one.
