        Connecting the Lithosphere and the Biosphere

        In this video segment from Teaching Earth and Space Science, middle school teacher Karen Spaulding discusses the reasons why she likes teaching about relationships between science topics by making connections within the Earth system. She describes how students may not naturally make a bridge between topics and explains why she tries to link two ideas together explicitly, such as relating Earth events and the fossil record. Spaulding also describes how building these connections helps integrate students’ experience of the sciences across the grades.
