Earth in Time and Space
This course advances your understanding and effective teaching about Earth's history, the Sun-Earth-Moon system, and broad temporal and spatial scales.
Session 1: Earth's History
Learners look at deep time and explore how the geological record helps us understand the long history of the Earth system.
Session 2: Broad Temporal and Spatial Scales
Learners investigate how the Sun-Earth-Moon system affects our world and examine ways to help students understand the vast scales associated with the solar system and universe.
All sessions and their content correspond to the National Science Education Standards.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
