This semester long high school science course will dive into the earth’s processes and investigate the following: minerals and the rock cycle, geological time scale and climate, weather and erosion, plate tectonics (earthquakes, volcanos, mountain building), and space science.
COURSE PREREQUISITES: Algebra 1
This course will be set up like a flipped classroom where students will be required to complete weekly academic work on their own including reading free text material, watching videos, and viewing PowerPoints. The focus during our virtual time together will be labs and other hands-on activities that match the weekly concept (some small purchases may be required for at home labs). Projects will be used as assessment only for the course.
Teacher: Brooklyne Coulter
