    Earth/Environmental Science

    In EES, we will get an overview of many different sciences. This includes geology, ecology, astronomy, meterology, and oceanography. Duirng the course of the semester students will learn how to predict weather, how Earth moves through space, how do we prepare for natural disaters, and the environmental impact our activities have. In EES we use interactive notebooks with foldables and images.

    Students will need a sprial or composition notebook. We also complete vocabulary activities on notecards so students will need a pack of notecards.
