Students in Earth Science will be focusing on the following topics during the third trimester:
Astronomy, Weather, Climate, and Energy.
Students will be creating Solar System trading cards in the Astronomy unit, and observe a "home made" comet.
For the Weather unit, students will be researching one particular weather phenomenon, and reporting on it to the class.
In the Energy unit students will be testing the presence of Ultraviolet, as well as creating Solar ovens.
In the beginning of May, students will also be taking the MCA Science Exams.
Links to practice tests for the MCA can be found on the north branch home page, and on my class web site.
