Exploring Our Fluid Earth (Grades 6-12)

The text and activities in the Exploring Our Fluid Earth curriculum are based on the philosophy of Teaching Science as Inquiry (TSI). TSI is a way of teaching and learning science as an active process where you get to learn science by doing science. Throughout this curriculum, you will investigate, discover, evaluate and communicate about aquatic science issues. As scientific investigators, you will also learn that science has many dimensions, that it does not always proceed in a strict linear fashion, and that it involves both the communication of the investigation process as well as the outcome.

The educational materials associated with Exploring Our Fluid Earth and TSI will be available in 2012.
