Image of the day

Posted by Dr. Laura Guertin

There are a few websites out there that have a really nice collection of “Images of the Day” appropriate for Earth Science courses.  I like to use these images when I begin a class (without showing students the caption – seeing what they can come up with on their own), or have the image and corresponding story be the focus of an online discussion posting.  I think there is so much more captured in images that I have yet to tap into.  Check out these sites for yourself!
