Earth and Space Science 9
In Earth and Space Systems you will learn and explore the interrelationships between the earth, air, space, life, and water. Concepts you learned in 7th grade life and 8th grade earth science will be explored in more depth while developing a deeper understanding of how these sciences work together. You will learn using a combination of lab investigations, modeling, reading, and data interpretation. Topics include climate change, human impact on the environment, big bang theory, plate tectonics, ecology, the ice age, and mass extinction. This course prepares students to be scientifically literate as well as prepare them for future courses in biology and science classes. This is a required 9th grade course.
