Welcome to Earth Science Week Online Toolkit

Each year the American Geosciences Institute celebrates Earth Science Week with our members and partners to acknowledge and understand Earth and our relationship with the planet through programs, information and learning resources. This year Earth Science Week is Oct. 11 – 17.

The teaching and learning resources you will find on this page have been developed by AGI and our members and partners to help educators teach about our planet and its systems. Some resources are specific to exploring this year’s theme— Earth Materials in Our Lives —while others include teacher professional development opportunities and information about online resources and geoscience careers. Many of these you may also find in the printed toolkit, which you can order here.

Please enjoy the materials you find on this site and send any feedback to info@earthsciweek.org.

Happy Earth Science Week!
