Earth Day Learning Activities

Earth Learning Idea (ELI) - a leading web site for earth science education - recently celebrated the publication of its 100th activity online. Every two weeks, ELI publishes a new Earth-related teaching activity, designed to be a practical resource for teachers and teacher-trainers. Most activities require minimal cost and equipment.
