This year long course will take students on an exploration of Earth and its systems. Geology will be the core of our class. To better understand our Earth, we will also examine its interaction with all its processes: the hydrosphere, geosphere, biosphere and atmosphere. We will take a hands-on approach to studying rocks and minerals, plate tectonics, mountain building, volcanoes, earthquakes, weathering and erosion, energy resources, as well as California geology. Students will work together in small lab groups to perform experiments, test hypotheses, and gather and record data.
