How I Use It
It is a fabulous interactive with a wealth of data to explore and mine. Students can create a claim and support it with data. OR, you can create a claim and have the students support it with the data they collect. Covers from earth's creation to present day. Topics such as mass extinctions, climate change, and earth science supported.
My Take
I used this tool to teach about trends in mass extinction. See HHMI curriculum on their website. Also an excellent pool of data for teaching climate change.
