As a teacher, I would take advantage of the teaching tips and links. I liked that the resource was useful for many age groups. The graphics are motivational.

I used one of the activities that was entitled snack tectonics. The students enjoyed it because they got to play with food. They also enjoyed eating their "plates" after the activity was over.

I am an elementary education student at MSU. I came across this site while searching for resources that will help me teach the fifth grade Minnesota Standard on the earth's spheres. I found this site to be very well organized and easy to navigate. I will definately use this site in my future teaching. Being able to access the information in both English and Spanish is helpful, since many classrooms today are growing in diversity. The visual images on the site are wonderful, and the graphics accompanying the lessons provide a great visualization of how to set up the experiments and activities.
