Earth System Science (EarthLabs for Educators and Policy Makers)

The lab activities in this module were adapted by Erin Barder of Terc for the EarthLabs project. These activities were based on the Exploring the Connections activities in the Earth as a System chapter of the GLOBE Teachers Guide. The lessons presented in this unit on Earth Systems expose students to some of the most current scientific research, data, and visualizations in a way that allows them to understand their world as an interconnected living system. These activities will help students look at the Earth in a new way - as a living system. Students will learn to identify the parts of the Earth system and the processes that connect them. They start by looking for interconnections among components of the Earth system at the local level, using a study site close to their school. Once they have started to develop some familiarity with these local interconnections, they identify interconnections among components at the regional and then at the global scale.
