It's EARTH SCIENCE WEEK!  Doesn't that make you just want to sing!?!?
This year the American Geosciences Institute will be organizing Earth Science Week which runs October 11-17 and celebrating the theme "Visualizing Earth Systems".

Everyone can participate in Earth Science Week and most of the work has been done for you.  You can find a list of engaging and educational classroom activities that are based on the Next Generation Science Standards and are marked with the appropriate grade level here.

Each day this week I'll be celebrating Earth Week by sharing freebies, special promotions and products with you.  Make sure to follow me on Facebook (www.facebook.com/NittyGrittyScience) to be notified!  My first gift to you, offered for a limited time, will be instructions and printables for making this Earth's Interior interactive activity that is featured in my Earth Science Interactive Notebook: Plate Tectonics.
