Earth Science Puzzles: Making Meaning From Data
Kim A. Kastens, Margie Turrin 2010 NSTA Press Arlington, VA

This book is a collection of data-rich activities for use in the high school earth science classroom. In addition, there is an introduction that places the exercises in the context of the critical thinking skills that geoscientists use: spatial/visual reasoning, temporal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and concept-based reasoning. This is an extremely useful resource for pre-service secondary science teaching majors, and can be downloaded at a very low cost from the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) website.
