Earth Science Series 1 of 3: Mapping, Minerals, and Rocks, A Course from Next Level Homeschool
There are a wide range of courses on various topics offered by Next Level Homeschool. Check out their selection here:
This will not be a “fluff” class, or an “overview”- it is an intensive, science heavy class where students will learn all of the major foundations of Earth Science, backed up with hands on labs. There will be no surface skimming in this class! We’re going to go deep- all the way to the core! 🙂
In this session, students will be learning what Earth Science is and the branches of science that pertain to it. We’ll learn how scientists map our earth, and get hands on with doing it ourselves! We will then discuss earth chemistry- elements and states of matter. The section will finish up with a study on minerals, the 3 types of rocks (igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary), and the rock cycle. Lots of hands on labs!
I have created educational videos to accompany the course- some of these will be on site at various areas around the world. Each week, there will be a choice of hands on projects for students to complete to reinforce their knowledge of the material.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS CLASS IS ONLY OFFERED ONCE PER YEAR IN THE FALL. THERE WILL BE NO ADDITIONAL DATES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.
This is Part 1 of 3 in a full year (24 weeks) Earth Science series. It’s a short 4 week class so you can determine if this learning style fits that of your child before you commit to the entire series. However, it is packed with information and is the foundation for our Earth Science studies. It will be followed up in October with the second part of the series, which will be 10 weeks. Then, in January, we will begin the final installment of the series which will be another 10 weeks. It is not required, but it is highly recommended that you take these classes in order.
Please note: If you enroll in Series 1, you are guaranteed space in the remaining earth science classes as long as you enroll before the deadline for each class. This first 4 week class is so you and your child can make sure our format is a good fit for your learning needs without you having to commit to a full year of classes.
