"Earth's Connected Systems and Me"
For students in grades K-5
Deadline: Friday, October 17, 2014
Earth scientists — or geoscientists — study land, water, air, and living things. In particular, these scientists pay attention to the ways these “connected systems” affect each other. Scientists study, for example, how water shapes the land, how living things use air, and how air and water act on each other. Let's ask our students - how do these connected systems affect you? Let's challenge our students to use artwork (two-dimensional (flat) visual arts project no larger than 24 x 36 inches) to show how land, water, air, and living things are connected in the world around them.
