Earth & Environment 1 Add-on?

Written by REAL Science Odyssey?author Blair Lee,?Earth &?Environment 1 Add-on?is intended to be used as an add-on course to Earth & Space 1.??This add-on includes many of the labs and lessons found in Earth & Environment 1 that incorporate three new thematic elements not found in Earth & Space 1.

What are the new elements?

  • Scientific modeling: There has been a movement to teach the practice and vocabulary of scientific modeling in all science classes, particularly Earth and environmental science. Scientific modeling at its most basic is done when a complex system is simplified so that specific elements within that system can be studied. This leads to a more solid understanding of the specific elements and a deeper, more nuanced understanding of the system as a whole.
  • During the past decade there has been a concerted movement by science educators to include environmental science as a thematic element when teaching Earth science. Earth &?Environment 1??has woven environmental science topics throughout the updated course. An important topic now covered in this course is global warming and how that is causing climate change.
  • Focused definitions of core science terms and phrases that have significant differences of meaning from regular and scientific use.

Uncommon Supplies Needed for Course Labs:

Science Thermometer– The liquid in good science thermometer goes down on its own, unlike the liquid in a medical thermometer, which must be shaken down. Some kitchen thermometers will work, but most do not go low enough. You will need a thermometer that will go down to 30° F or 0° C.
