Nancy et al.,
I am also teaching and designing an inquiry-based earth science
course for preservice elementary teachers and would be interested in
any curriculum ideas on integrating concepts across the earth and space

I teach a graduate class
for in-service teachers, Geology for Educators, that is a review of the
earth science content in the New Mexico education benchmarks and
standards plus how to teach that content through inquiry or guided
inquiry. The class is part of NMSU's Master of Arts in Teaching
Science degree program.
I'm interested in talking
with other people working in this area.

Email David if you know of a "Geoscience By Inquiry" or similar
curriculum. I think I've heard of someone working on this, but can't
CC the list, too, if you don't mind - I'd like to know!

geoscience courses for elementary teachers
Are there any curricula available for geoscience courses specifically
designed for preservice elementary teachers? I'm thinking about
something that would be analogous to Physics by Inquiry, or Physics and
Everyday Thinking. Do you know people who are teaching such courses in
earth and/or space science?
