Teaching Boxes create links between Earth system resources and classroom-ready instructional units (often 5-6 lesson plans and associated activities and procedures) that are designed to bridge the gap between educational resources and how to implement them in the classroom. Materials model scientific inquiry, allowing teachers to build classroom experiences around data collection and analysis from multiple lines of evidence, and engaging students in the process of science. Features include an overview, goals, prerequisites, technology requirements, time requirements and concepts and standards. Suggestions for homework and assessment are available.
