Exploring Earth Online Curriculum

TERC’s Exploring Earth web site is a companion to McDougal Littell’s Earth Science curriculum. TERC has created web-based investigations linked to passages in the Earth Science textbook. The site incorporates satellite images, astronaut photos, animations, and other visualizations to make resources typical of those used by practicing scientists available to novice technology users. In conjunction with the textbook, the Exploring Earth web site allows users to explore the connectedness of Earth’s systems and experience Earth and space science as a process of inquiry, exploration, and discovery.
