2009 EARTH SCIENCE WEEK TOOLKITS NOW AVAILABLE
The Earth Science Week 2009 (October 11-17) Toolkit enables students, educators, and the public to fully explore this year's theme "Understanding Climate." The latest edition of this resource is now available through the American Geological Institute (AGI). It contains a 12-month school-activity calendar and classroom poster provided by AGI, its Member Societies, and other organizations. Along with these traditional Earth Science Week publications, this year's Toolkit features a variety of educational climate resources from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), NASA, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). A report on the "Ecological Impacts of Climate Change" and a new brochure outlining principles for Earth Science literacy are also included. Multimedia features this year include NASA's "Dynamic EARTH" DVD-ROM and a CD-ROM on GIS technology from ESRI. Additional informational materials within the kits include a National Park Service poster highlighting the nation's glaciers and literature on the National Wildlife Refuge System. Like years past, the 2009 Toolkit contains a genuine field notebook from Rite in the Rain. These items and much more make the Earth Science Week Toolkit ideal for engaging students and general public to explore the geosciences. The Toolkits are available for the cost of shipping and handling and bulk pricing is available. Find out more at <http://www.earthsciweek.org/materials> www.earthsciweek.org/materials.
