Almost Free Stuff for Science Teachers

I know bloggers are not suppose to post stuff like this. But if you have any science teaching friends, please share this info with them.

ALEXANDRIA, VA - In support of Earth Science Week 2007 (October 14-20),
the American Geological Institute (AGI) is publishing its "The Pulse of
Earth Science" Toolkit to enable teachers, students, and the public
alike to actively participate in this year's event.

This year's Toolkit includes a wide array of resources, including a new
edition of its popular Earth Science Calendar filled with activities and
important geoscientific dates.  These activities, supplied by AGI member
societies and other organizations, engage students in learning about the
earth sciences. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has provided both
"Facts on Disc," a CD-ROM which includes all of the USGS fact sheets
from the last twelve years and the brochure "USGS Education Resources
for Teachers."  The Toolkits also contain materials from NASA including
the CD-ROM "Exploring Ice" and an "Earth and Space Explorers Series"
poster.  ESRI has provided a copy of its "GIS Solutions for Education"
CD-ROM.  NOAA is also providing information on student opportunities and
careers within the earth sciences.
