This is a resource for an entire year of Earth and Space Science. The resource units are divided into quarters and require Adobe PDF reader to access. The resource is easily located in search and meets the CA content standards for Earth and Space Science. The activities range from simple individual analysis of situations using the scientific method to more complex group situations. There are also several formal and informal assessments and quarter final exams. Strategies suggested for presentation and application of concepts are included.
