Welcome to fifth grade and the study of Earth Science. The four main areas of Earth Science are oceanography, geology, meteorology, and astronomy. Through hands-on activities, internet research and observations of natural occurrences we will study the forces that shape the Earth, the conditions in the atmosphere, the universe beyond the Earth and the Earth's oceans.
The world around us is constantly changing. Developing an understanding of the concepts in Earth Science will assist students in interpreting new developments and technologies.
