USGS Resources for Teachers Online Brochure From USGS SILS Information Bulletin
The U.S. Geological Survey provides scientific information needed to help educate the public about natural resources, natural hazards, geospatial data, and issues that affect our quality of life.
The latest edition of the USGS educational brochure which contains some of this information is now available online at http://education.usgs.gov. Click on ‘resources for teachers’ in the left-hand column.
Discover a wealth of curricular ideas, scientific data, maps, books, lessons, and other resources to support earth science, biology, geography, and hydrology. This four-page informational brochure contains selected online resources to support teaching, learning, education (K-12), and university level inquiry and research.
The brochure is divided into three topic areas: Where can I find it? (displays the online site), What can I do with it? (a useful section to help educators and others explore the possibilities for information), and What does it look like? (thumbprint of the poster, brochure, learning exercise, etc.)
This brochure is currently available online only, but a copy will be enclosed in the 2007 Earth Science Week Toolkit.
