These Earth Science Teachers' Association resources provide an introduction to geology and earth science through practical activities and observations. Each resource has detailed teacher guidance and materials for use with students in the classroom.

The materials cover a large range of topics and include:

* landscape formation
* sedimentary processes
* fossils
* energy and the extraction of raw materials

Resources

Power Source: Oil and Energy

These materials, produced by the Earth Science Teachers' Association, look at oil and gas and their use as an energy source.

Students survey energy resources for a developing country. They look at the formation, migration and trapping of oil and gas deposits as well as their detection and extraction.

Life from the Past - Introducing Fossils

These materials, produced by the Earth Science Teachers' Association, enable students to understand fossils and the process of fossilisation.

Students look at how living organisms become fossilised using plaster of Paris 'fossils'. Students then consider how the fossil record can be used to deduce previous...

Moulding Earth's Surface - Weathering, Erosion and Transportation

Produced by the Earth Science Teachers' Association, these resources look at how surfaces are produced by the breaking up of rocks and transport by water.

The influence of different rock types on the development of landscapes is also considered.

A Teachers' Guide to the 'Science of the Earth' Approach

This booklet, produced by the Earth Science Teachers' Association, describes the contents of their 'Science of the Earth 11-14' series of resources.
