Greetings and welcome to 9th grade Earth Science. My name is Mr. Braden and I will be your guide as we explore our home planet that we call Earth. We will be
 examining all kinds of interesting aspects of the Earth including: the solar system and our place within universe; all of the different areas of Earth Science (geosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, atmosphere) and how they interact with each other forming the basis of Earth Systems Science; Weather and Climate; and much, much more!

It will be an exciting year of science and exploration so put on your lab coats, grab your science journals, and hold on to your safety goggles because it is going to be an awesome ride! 
Please feel free to explore my website and If you have any questions about earth and space science, how I manage my classroom, or my lesson planning please feel free to email me and I will be happy to offer any assistance that I can.
