    Hi Brat.

    Can you be more specific about the information your daughter needs for this journal?

    By doing a web search you can find links on the internet covering those topics.

    Here's a link to help find recent earth science news articles:

    Just type the topic in the search box on that page.

    Hope this helps a little.

      I am an old science teacher so I'll do what I can to help here. Not sure if I understand the assignment correctly but believe it may be that Doodlebug needs to keep a daily journal of news reports for each of the areas you mentioned. Correct?

      Some good links for daily science news: (geology news-daily earthquake reports, volcanic activity, etc.) (has a nice section on homework help including a news link) (Scientific American) (use the science & space link for news)

      There are many other links. If you do a Google Search for science news or each specific topic followed by the word news you will find lots of resources.

      Hope this helps!

          grouphug grouphug grouphug I don't understand this teacher. He or she should be more willing to help the studnets. That seems like a hard course to take. I will pray for you and your daugther. Hang in there Cindy. I love your hair by the way.
          Hang in there , There is hope.
          There is hope. Prayer works.

          Love, Debbie

                Hi! I had posted here but it seemed to have disappeared. I just thought of another good website to go to for information. I used it for my college astronomy class a lot.


                I hope this helps!
