In the spring 2016, 2019 and 2021 editions of The Earth Scientist, a peer reviewed science education journal published by The National Earth Science Teachers Association, educators who completed projects supported by NOAA Planet Stewards shared stories, innovations, and resources that you may find useful in your own education setting. These articles include links to background information, supporting materials, and student worksheets available for you to download and adapt. They reflect the enthusiasm, hard work and success of educators, their students, and communities. We hope you enjoy these special issues produced in cooperation with the National Earth Science Teachers Association. Find out more about NOAA Planet Stewards and how you can receive support to carry out a hands-on stewardship project.
