Magma Mystery - Exploring the Rock Cycle, pt. 1
EveryDay Earth combines enriching explorations of landscapes in and near Oklahoma with the fun of learning through interactive technology. The program consists of various "Missions", similar to textbook units or modules, each containing 5-7 short, thought-provoking and topical interactive video 'Lessons".
Each "Lesson" is base on 1-2 related scientific topics and a location, and it's page contains three parts; Explore, Observe and Question (part A), Investigation (part B) in which students choose to gather data and test hypothesis, and a Summary and Expansion (part C).
Lessons focus on scientific investigations related to physical Earth processes and systems. Each lesson is connected to the next one by a story. You will follow the EveryDay Earth Corps of scientists, as it thwarts Dr. Desmond Discord using the Terravator, Stratalyzer and other special equipment - all fueled by a mythical mineral called Estemite (Earth"STEM"-ite) which we collect by completing investigations.
The text, videos and connected online materials contained here are intended to help provide teachers other avenues to explore even the most abstract topics in Earth science with students, in ways that support national and state earth science educational standards.
EveryDay Earth is free to teachers and home schooling parents for use! It is made possible by the sponsors listed on our home page.
Keep in mind the program is still under construction, meaning it is ever-growing and changing. Today, 2 full missions are available for classroom use, covering the Hydrosphere (Hydrologic Cycle (Mission 1) and Role of Water in Changing the Earth's Surface (Mission 2)). Ultimately, EveryDay Earth will consist of 10 stand-alone Missions revolving around places in greater Oklahoma that cover the full spectrum of Earth and Space Science content!
As you use the program, keep in mind we seek feedback and ways to improve our lessons. Please send any feedback or suggestions to Dr. Devin Dennie or Todd Kent here at the Contact Us page.
