The next ten months you will be immersed
in an in-depth examination of all the forces, motions, characteristics and past
history of the Earth and its immediate surroundings. The exciting thing about Earth Science is
that it is happening around us, every hour of every day. No need to wonder what something might look
like or how it is imagined. Just look
out your window, go for a walk, paddle a river, or climb a mountain. You are surrounded by Earth Science.
Of course, we will use notes, maps, charts, diagrams, movies, pictures, and basic mathematical skill to help us understand the concepts and meanings of our investigation. I will also be calling on each student’s own powers’ of observation and inference as we use the scientific method of study during laboratory work.
