Tips From Teachers

“EarthViewer was conceived as a high school-level resource, but its engaging interface and well-executed information screens make it accessible to students as young as sixth grade as they develop understanding in the disciplinary core ideas of the Next Generation Science Standards.[...] The app provides additional, unique opportunities to address Common Core State Standards (CCSS), ELA, for grades 6-12, especially in the Integration of Knowledge and Ideas and the Research to Built and Present Knowledge areas. [...] an excellent app that can be at the center of inquiry-based learning in any classroom.” -- Kari Augustine, The Science Teacher, October 2013
