The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

What do the lush, tropical islands of Hawaii have in common with the barren, cool summits of the Cascade Mountains in the northwestern United States? Both provide dramatic evidence of plate tectonics in the form of volcanoes and earthquakes. In this session, we investigate how these phenomena are connected to the movement of plates. As we examine what happens at and between plate boundaries, our focus shifts to the mechanisms deep within the Earth that drive what we observe at its surface.

SIE14033: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - When Continents Collide

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

From the volcanoes that encircle the Pacific Ocean in the “ring of fire” to the peaks of the Himalayas at the “top of the world,” mountains are perhaps Earth’s most dramatic landforms. Can we find a pattern in how and where mountains form? In this session, we build upon our understanding of plate tectonics to take a closer look at the connection between plate boundaries and mountain formation. In the process, we continue our exploration of rocks and the stories they can tell.

SIE14034: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - Restless Landscapes

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

If most mountains are formed in the same way, why do they look so different? In this session, we explore the forces sculpting the ever-changing landscape of the Earth. One particular landform, Cape Cod, a peninsula off Massachusetts, is the setting for our investigation.

SIE14035: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - Our Nearest Neighbor: The Moon

Earth's Moon has been a source of curiosity throughout human history. It is Earth's closest companion in the Solar System, yet it appears to be very different from the Earth. There is a growing body of evidence, however, that tells us that there are also important similarities between the Earth and its Moon. In this session we “travel” to our nearest neighbor to collect clues that we can use to interpret the features of the Moon and story of the Moon's origin.

SIE14036: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - Order Out of Chaos: Our Solar System

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

Have you ever looked into that seemingly endless blanket of stars in the night sky and wondered: Is there another planet like ours? Is Earth unique in the Universe? What is the likelihood of the existence of solar systems like ours? In order to contemplate these questions, we must first understand the story of our own solar system.

SIE14037: Science in Focus: Energy - What is Energy?

Interviews about energy with children, scientists, and people on the street reveal the wide range of concepts that teachers encounter. In this session, you will look at the differences between the everyday language of energy and the scientific concept, see highlights of its history, and learn its importance in our understanding of the world.

SIE14038: Science in Focus: Energy - Force and Work

Change happens when energy is transferred or converted. In this session, examine conversion between potential and kinetic energy. Through examples, see how events that involve a small amount of energy can trigger much larger events.

SIE14040: Science in Focus: Energy - Energy in Cycles

Energy can be seen in cycles every day, from the bouncing of balls to the swinging of pendulums. In this session, further explore the relationship between kinetic and potential energy to understand how cycles begin and are sustained, and why they decay.
