Earth Science introduces the study of astronomy, geology, meteorology, and oceanography. Course topics will integrate physical science concepts and lab skills as they pertain to the study of Earth Science.  Students learn through labs, projects, individual and group study. Students investigate the relationships between the following: water cycle, rock cycle, plate tectonics, seismic events, and the earth in its solar system. Students will also investigate how human interactions have changed the earth and what this means for the future.
