The Learning Web, provided by the U.S. Geological Survey, is dedicated to K-12 education, exploration, and life-long learning. It is divided into two sections, Teaching in the Learning Web, and Living in the Learning Web. Teaching at present contains information about three main topics, Global Change, Working with Maps, and Earth Science. Each of these sections offers student activities, along with several images. Global Change and Working with Maps also offer teacher's guides that contain bibliographies and further information. Teaching also contains pointers to lists of USGS maintained pointers (not limited to K-12 sites) in subjects such as climate, earth science, hydrology, oceanography, and volcanology, among others. Living in the Learning Web presents information on topics such as household water supply, radon gas, preparing for volcanoes, and the affect of weather on streams. Each one of these sections connects to a pertinent USGS Web page, which in turn offers additional information and pointers.
