Welcome to Earth, Earth Scientists! 

Not new to Planet Earth, you say? Well, together we are embarking on a journey to learn more about our fabulous planet than you ever knew before!  From the interior of the Earth to the outer reaches of the Milky Way galaxy...the focus of this class is to further your knowledge about Earth Science and relate it to the other branches of science such as Life and Physical Science, as well as engineering and technology.  (We will also be doing a fair share of Reading, Writing, and Math, along the way.) We will be using a lot of hands-on activities, experiments, labs, and many other strategies.



Major Units of Study:

Scientific Inquiry
Plate Tectonics
Changes in Rocks
Geologic Time and Energy Resources
Fresh Water and Oceans
Atmosphere, Weather, and Climate
Earth, Moon, and Sun
The Solar System and the Universe
