Scientists are explorers. Earth Science Explorer helps your students
become explorers too. Scientists explore by observing natural phenomena,
studying data, experimenting, and forming and testing hypotheses. Their
exploration rarely follows a straight path, but it is organized.
module works the same way. Think of it like a museum. Different floors
contain information grouped according to topics. Visitors are free to
explore and choose that which is relevant to their search. Earth Science
Explorer has two floors. The Earth floor presents Earth science fundamentals,
such as cycles, spheres, and geologic time. The Dinosaur floor examines
dinosaur extinction and some of the hypotheses that might explain it.
In order to understand the complexity of the topic, your students might
need to explore more than one hypothesis. How
many they explore is
up to you.
