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, entertaining and related educational video Lessons.
Each Lesson contains three parts; an Explore, Observe and Question stage (part A), an Investigation stage in which students choose to gather data and test hypothesis (part B), and a Summary and Expansion stage (part C). Lessons focus on scientific investigations related to physical Earth processes and systems. Each lesson is connected to the next by a story line as we follow the fictional EveryDay Earth Corps of scientists, as it thwarts Dr. Desmond Discord using their Terravator and special equipment fueled by a fictional mineral called Estemite (Earth"STEM"-ite).
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 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!
