When teaching land, air and water include underground landscapes! Caves are formed by the forces of erosion. Carbonic acid in water dissolves rock and forms cave passages and unusual mineral formations. Caves cover 10% of the earth and occur in temperate, tropical, alpine and polar biomes. They are called Karst landscapes.
About 1/4th of the world's people depend on water supplied by karst areas. Human encroachment and pollution are affecting underground regions.
The Early Childhood version has 8 subjects and 32 cards. "This is a great material when introducing land. Our students are fascinated with it! That and your volcano cards." AMS teacher in Cincinnati

Introduce one of the biggest plants on the earth with the study of trees. Deciduous and evergreen work is great for fall. World Tree Cards are good all year, as a staple on the geography shelf. Students love to read the simple sentences and pick out their favorite tree.
"One child said, Do you know that trees are the very biggest things on the earth that really grow. And you can talk to them. They listen."
Caribbean Sea and the Coral Reef: The Caribean reef is ancient. It is a rainforest of the sea. Coral Reefs around the world are dying. Coral reefs are made by tiny plant-like coral animals. Use these cards with younger students to do picture-picture matching or word-word matching. Reading students can read the sentences. Elementary students can match the definition card to the photo cards with the name or without the name. They can use the who am I cards with the photo cards and check them with the definition cards. This is a favorite in the early childhood and elementary classroom.
