Earth Science: Hydrology, Meteorology and Astronomy (6th-8th)

Teacher: Donna Neely

Description: This class is based on Units 4-6 of BJU Earth Science. (Textbook not required) We will covering both surface water and groundwater systems. We will discuss the atmosphere, weather, and climates. Lastly, we will explore our solar system and non-planetary objects. There will be review questions for homework each week. These can be answered using the lecture notes given out during class.

Class Length: 16 weeks, year long

Homework: 0-30 minutes

Apologia General Science Lab (5th-8th)

Teacher: Ashley Enns

Description:

NOTE: The first 7 modules were covered last semester.  It’s okay to still take the class but the student should know they missed 1/2 the book.

Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd edition introduces the general science concepts of the scientific method and earth science, including astronomy, geology, paleontology, meteorology, oceanography, as well as general biology, chemistry, and physics. It covers environmental science and even includes a final module on science and creation, written by multiple modern-day scientists. While preparing students for high school studies, Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd edition is designed to be vibrant, engaging, and academically rigorous. Further, this course will help the student to develop critical thinking skills and a lifelong passion for exploring God’s creation.

This class will do the labs and a review of the lessons. You and your student will be responsible for writing a lab report, reading the chapters before class, and filling out the lab notebook. If you have already taught this class but want the labs that will be ok.
