There’s a lot to be learned in life, sometimes I find myself overwhelmed with everything I do not know. I’ve heard it said, nevertheless, that the smartest individuals are the ones who know that they don’t know much. I like that. I like it because I’m really conscious that there’s a lot that I have yet to discover and understand. I am committed, however, to the process of constantly learning more. My latest subject of fascination has been wondering and learning about earth science.
I have not actually thought that much with regards to earth science since I took a class in it in junior high school. At that time, I hated everything to do with science and so I did not give a lot thought one way or another to earth science. I dreadfully made it through that class learning just the basics enough to get by (not the least of which I can remember right now).
I’m not quite certain what motivated me to attempt to discover facts about earth science. I guess I began to become more interested in earth science as I had children and they grew up asking question after question. I could barely take them on walks at night without them asking me questions about the ground, the soil, the trees or the sun. I’d fumble through answers and attempt to change the subject quickly as I admitted to myself that I truly didn’t know a lot. So on my next trip to the library, I picked up a couple of general books on earth science and began learning with my kids.
I have discovered that learning with my kids has become one of the best ways to grow in knowledge. I utilize their curiosity and take every chance I can at learning with them. It has been an excellent means for me to learn more about earth science and other things. I never knew just how much motherhood would affect me, but I definitely did not know how much I would learn because of my kid’s desire for knowledge.
I’ve learned many things regarding earth science since our studies have started. One of the biggest things I’ve learned is a deeper sense of appreciation for the world I live in. I have grown in amazement and wonder about the way the world works and about my small and insignificant place. I basically am astounded by the intricacies and details of our earth. Earth science has taught me to be much more curious about the world around me.
If you have a craving to learn more about the world you live in, then start with grabbing a couple of books on earth science. You will love learning a lot that you won’t be able to stop.

Earth formed around 4.54 billion (4.54×109) years ago by accretion from the solar nebula. Volcanic outgassing probably created the primordial atmosphere, but it contained almost no oxygen and would have been toxic to humans and most modern life. Much of the Earth was molten because of frequent collisions with other bodies which led to extreme volcanism. One very large collision is thought to have been responsible for tilting the Earth at an angle and forming the Moon. Over time, the planet cooled and formed a solid crust, allowing liquid water to exist on the surface.
