Earth Science: Gods World, Our Home – Digital Resources

By: Kevin Nelstead


The Digital Resources for Earth Science include all documentation and electronic resources necessary for the administration of this course, whether in a homeschool setting or a coop or classroom. All items are printable and distributable to your student or classroom; only one copy of digital resources are needed per classroom or home.


Product Description


In this downloadable resource, you will find tools for planning the year such as a daily Lesson List and sample semester schedule. Starting about week 2 or 3, the quizzes should be administered weekly. Fall and spring semester exams are included. Weekly Review Guides are another resource to give your students to guide them as they learn to study for a mastery-based course like this one.

Also included are an answer key, a document of recommendations for teaching the book, and an experiment manual in 2 formats (one double-wide for printing out in a booklet and one single-wide for viewing on a computer screen).

These resources are suitable for use with any edition of the text. All supplemental materials are here—no other workbooks or manuals are necessary, making this an economical option. Purchasers have access to the Digital Resources for the lifetime of the product.

List of Experiments

  • Interpreting Topographics Maps – examine features of a U.S. Geological Survey topographic map of the Mt. Shasta area, construct topographic profiles
  • Identifying Minerals – use luster, hardness, color, streak and other properties to identify mineral samples
  • Identifying Rocks – use various tests including visual, break and HCl tests to identify rock types
  • Studying Volcanoes with Topo Maps – study features of volcanos in Hawaii, Sitka, Alaska, and Sunset Crater East in Arizona
  • Modeling Weathering – model transport of mineral grains using sugar cubes in a container, model chemical weathering when grain size is small, model the effect of temperature on the rate of weathering
  • The Stream Table –  use a stream table to model stream flow and erosion
  • Studying Glaciers with Topo Maps – examine two topographic maps showing landforms created by alpine glaciers, and two showing landforms created by continental ice sheets
  • Weather Maps – interpret station models, isobars, fronts, and pressure systems to understand the current weather, and then make a few basic analog weather forecasts
