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 remember who!


CC the list, too, if you don't mind - I'd like to know!


Take care

Subject: 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?
