Website: DLESE

The Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE) is a free resource for earth science teachers.
This website supports teaching and learning about the Earth system for all grade levels. Resources include lesson plans, scientific data, visualizations, interactive computer models, and virtual field trips. Resources can be accessed by key word, education level, subject, or resource type. Or, users can browse nearly 16,000 resources.
The Earth Science Literacy Maps provide an easy way to explore Earth science concepts by topic such as changes in the earth’s surface, flow of matter in ecosystems, and plate tectonics. Users are presented with clickable maps to explore concepts and connected science benchmarks.
Librarians will find the resources at this website useful in addressing science standards. Work with teachers to mine the site for useful curriculum materials.
