Welcome to the Earth Science page. We will meet four days a week with one double period lab. We will explore Earth science including the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and astronomy. There is a focus on designing, carrying out, and reporting self-directed lab investigations.
I hope that the pdfs of the images used in class as well as the write ups help you learn better. If you have any questions, please e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Each unit is assessed in four areas: content (30%), science (30%), mission (30%), and student (10%).
Also, the students may work on a page for their cumulative project due in May called their Big Book of Science.
Below is a list of links to unit guides, images, assignments, and rubrics.
