Science of the Earth

This series of resources, produced by the Earth Science Teachers' Association, help students gain a greater understanding of earth science. Extensive teacher guidance and student materials encourage an investigative approach to the subject.

Areas covered include:

  • the properties of different rock types
  • sedimentation processes 
  • the influence of geological features on water supply, waste and nuclear waste disposal

Resources

Science of the Earth Unit 9: Ground Water Supplies

Produced by the Earth Science Teachers' Association, these materials encourage students to examine a case study for a water supply scheme.Students look at features such as porosity, permeability and hydrological data whilst analysing the scheme.
