Sponsored by the American Geological Institute, this year’s Earth Science Week takes place October 10-16. This year’s theme is “Exploring Energy,” quite an apt theme with this spring/summer’s disaster oil spill in the Gulf.
At the website, you will find handy links to help you plan and participate in Earth Science Week events. You can order an Earth Science Week Toolkit ($6.95 — I think you’re pretty much just paying for shipping) that includes various posters, brochures, activity books, and worksheets that you can use in your classroom. Additionally, there are links to other classroom activities and resources. For students there are contests, scholarships, and career ideas.
