Studying something as large and complicated as the Earth is quite an undertaking. In order to make it manageable, this course is divided into the scientific areas of geology, meteorology, astronomy, and oceanography. Each of these areas of study helps scientists understand the activity and make-up of our planet. In this course, students will use scientific methods and investigations to make each area of study applicable to their daily lives.
