8th Grade Earth & Space Science
This program offers students an opportunity to explore the disciplines of Astronomy, Geology, and Meteorology. The course is based on the concept that students “learn by doing.” Life on Earth is tied by amazing interrelationships to the oceans, minerals and rocks, the process of weathering and erosion, and the supply of natural resources. It is important for students to relate this information to current concern for ecology and energy conservation. The student applies graphing with its interpretations, map reading, and math manipulations to the discovery of patterns that describe these relationships. The practical applications of information learned are reinforced throughout the entire course of study so that students can better cope with their changing world.
