Investigating Earth Systems
Investigating Earth Systems (IES) is a standards-based, Earth science curriculum
for the middle grades (6th-8th grades) developed by the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) in association with It's About Time Publishing. Field tested
and content reviewed, IES is part of AGI's ongoing efforts at implementing
effective Earth science education reform. AGI recognizes the need for students
in the middle grades to have a solid understanding of the world they live
in. IES was developed with generous support from the National Science Foundation
(NSF), AGI Foundation and Chevron Corporation.
