NASHVILLE (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam has proclaimed the next several days Earth Science Week in Tennessee.

An Earth Science Week toolkit will be made available for teachers across the state.

Items in the free toolkit include map resources and materials from the National Park Service, NASA, Soil Science Society of America, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Bureau of Land Management.

Educators interested in receiving a kit can call: (615) 532-1502.
