Concepts of Earth and Chemistry

Course Description

This is the suggested course sequence that allows one core area of science to be studied per semester. You can change the sequence of the semesters per the needs or interests of your student; materials for each semester are independent of one another to allow flexibility.

Semester 1: Biogeography

It has been said that our planet is really just an insignificant speck in a vast universe, but that's not true! In fact, the conditions for life found on Earth are supremely unique and make our life here comfortable. This despite the reality that the world around us is also tainted and in need of careful calibration to continue. This book opens a window to the spectacular environments found on our planet, from deserts to the tropics. Researcher and biologist Dr. Gary Parker brings his vast knowledge of ecology to a teaching setting, exploring and explaining ecosystems, population growth, habitats, adaptations, energy problems, and much more. Learn about insect control in California, why mammals have fur, and how sharks maintain “friendships” with small fish known as remora. Exploring the World Around You brings the varieties of our planet's habitats alive to the reader.

Semester 2: Astronomy

Think you know all there is to know about our solar system? You might be surprised at some of the amazing details that you find when you begin Exploring the World of Astronomy! From the rugged surface of the moon to the distant and mysterious constellations, this book provides an exciting educational tour for students of different ages and skill levels. Learn about a blue moon, the 400-year storm on Jupiter, and what is meant by “the zone of life.” Discussion ideas, questions, and research opportunities help expand this great resource on observational astronomy into an unforgettable educational course for middle school to high school students!
