What is Earth Science?

The name types of indicates that it is only about our planet, but there are many different aspects that you will discover as you study this field. It begins with geology which studies the stuff that makes up the Earth. Within this particular field we will often study the two things that help shape landforms across the planet and those are earthquakes or plate shifting and volcanoes. After we are done investigating the Earth itself, we look to things that surround it mainly the atmosphere. This includes air pressure, humidity, wind, and temperature. All of these variables affect weather patterns and ultimately the climate within certain regions. Just over seventy percent of the planet is covered in water, mostly in the form of ocean water. This is another area where we require a great deal of consideration and study. The last thing to explore are the structures beyond this world in space and astronomy is that field. We explore how other bodies such as the sun, the moon, and other planets affect Earth.

Sun's Composition

We breakdown key features of the Earth and sun. We also explore the space shuttle.

Food Chains

We take a look at how living things interact with their environment which includes nutrition, biomes, food chains and nature webs.

Erosion & Weathering

We look at how Mother Nature grooms herself and land forms and evolves over time.

Fossil Record

We learn how to gauge the relative age of a fossil based on the fossil record.

Vocabulary Sheet
Earth & Physical Science Vocabulary

Relevant words form students that are studying this topic.

Earth's Layers
Plate Tectonics

We look at how Earth's plates interact to form new landforms and we look inside the Earth itself and break it down into layers.

Rocks & Minerals

Students explore the different types of rocks and how they form. They will also explore the concept of the rock cycle.

Solar System

Students explore their own galaxy. They look at how the planets orbit and revolve. We also look at how angles of sun coverage forms seasons.

Topographic Map

Students learn how to read topographical maps and create, use, and manipulate benchmarks.

The Cycle
Water Cycle

Students observe and identify all stages of this cycle and grab an understanding of where it fits in.

Weather Data

We learn how long periods of weather is forecasted and predicted.
