Earth Science Week 2019 is October 13-19! The event, founded by the American Geosciences Institute, is in its 21st year and is focused on building a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth sciences for all. The theme for 2019 is “Geoscience Is For Everyone,” emphasizing both the potential and the importance of the geosciences in the lives of all people. During the week there will be exclusive resources made available to educators on an array of topics and activities for students.

To celebrate, we have partnered with the National Earth Science Teacher Association to create a home for our Earth science resources, including High-Adventure Science, GEODE, and GeoHazard. A link to this resource is included in the 2019 Earth Science Week Toolkit on a QR coded sticker!

The Concord Consortium has created a set of research-based resources for teachers and students that falls right in line with the mission of Earth Science Week: an event to help the “public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth.” Our free online resources include curriculum modules with interactive computational models that explore topics such as climate change, plate tectonics, and natural hazards.
