• Earth Science We begin by delving into the areas and systems of Earth Science.  Our primary focus is on geology and ocenaography (astronomy and meteorology are stand alone units covered later).  Honing in on two of Earth's systems, the Lithosphere and Hydropsphere, we touch on the Atmosphere and introduce the Biosphere.  Moving on, we unlock Earth's geolocial history and the Pangaea.  In short, why the Earth looks like it does today; at least on the surface.  The unit closes out by reviewing a couple of natural disasters, earthquakes and tsunamis, and how we contrubute to their severty while attempting to mitigate loss of life.

    Click on this title header (Earth Science) to access the Earth Science presentation lesson.  Watch in the Screen Show mode and mouse over slides to view hyperlinked videos that support the lesson.

    Additionally, below are three YouTube videos I created for easy reference.  They have an additonal value if we are not on class and again find ourselves engaged in virtual learning.  Each addresses a section of the unit that I provide a narrative lesson on, but it does not afford us with the oppportunity to view the hyperlinked videos.  However, I broke each of them out and made them available to you.
