Earth and Environmental Science
This class explores a variety of scientific disciplines including: astronomy, physics, biology, chemistry, ecology, and meteorology. We also emphasize student-based scientific inquiry and projects.
I expect my students to have: 1. A positive attitude 2. A strong work ethic 3. Integrity 4. Maturity 5. Fun
What's Going OnWe're now in the middle of our unit on astronomy and physics. We're gradually moving towards covering some basic chemistry.
Class ProjectsThe first group project is coming soon.
Earth Tomorrow ClubWe always need extra help with recycling after school on Thursdays. We're also in the process of building a water garden/water catchment system. Stay tuned for details if you want to help.
