Earth Science

Delve into the fascinating study of our planet in this engaging and age appropriate Earth Science class!  Students will begin by learning the scientific method and will apply this systematic pursuit of knowledge throughout the course. Main topics covered include the observable universe, spheres of the Earth, landforms, rocks, soil, cycles (water, carbon, nitrogen), climate, and weather.  Students will gain knowledge through interactive discussions, simple hands-on experiments and demonstrations using common household items, guided activities, and reading.  We will use the textbook Apologia: Exploring Creation Through Earth Science as a guide, along with parent provided common household items and printable activity sheets.
