Welcome to Advanced and Regular Earth and Space Science!
I am Ms. Doby-Jones and I am your child's 6th grade science teacher. I am very thrilled to be teaching Advanced and Regular Earth and Space Science this year. In earth and space science, students study the origin, structure, and physical phenomena of the earth and the universe. Here on my website, you will find topics that will be covered this year as well as information on major tests and projects that will be given.
Topics that will be covered this year are as follows:
- Nature of Science
- Atmosphere and Weather
- Earth's Structure-Changes Over Time
- Plate Tectonics
- Astronomy-Solar System
- Astronomy-Stars and Universe
Because Earth and Space Science is the study of the origin, structure , and physical phenomena of the earth and the universe, there will be many areas to explore. This class will be intense, challenging, and rigorous. My goal is to make this class easy to understand and fun to learn, the topic concepts that will be assessed for mastery. Labs will be for hands- on experience, through inquiry of the concepts for this class.
