The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Idaho Geological Survey are teaming up to distribute Earth Science Week toolkits to Idaho teachers on October 1.

Representatives from the two agencies will distribute the toolkits at the annual conference of the Idaho Science Teachers Association in Boise.

Earth Science Week is an outreach effort of the American Geological Institute. USGS is a sponsor of the annual event. This year’s Earth Science Week runs October 11-17 with the theme “Understanding Climate.”

Earth Science Week toolkits include educational materials that teachers can use to enhance their curriculum during Earth Science Week and throughout the year. The materials come from the USGS, NASA, the National Park Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and other agencies and associations.
