Celebrating Earth science:  Delaware Geological Survey supplies educational materials to teachers for Earth Science Week

When the Delaware Geological Survey (DGS) recently distributed Earth Science Week teacher kits at Coast Day, attendees dug right in.

“All were gone within a matter of a few hours,” David R.Wunsch, DGS director and state geologist, said. “Several teachers were overwhelmed because they had been looking for this type of information.”

The educational tools included posters, maps, a school-year activity calendar, teacher lessons and exercises, literature, work plans and hands-on experiments for all ages. A computer program also handed out was designed to help students learn about earth science and how it impacts their daily lives.
