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
- Earth's Structure and Energy
- Plate Tectonics
- Rock Cycle/Changes Over Time/Human Impact
- Earth's History
- Water Cycle
- Space Exploration
- Solar System
- Stars and the 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 standards that will be assessed for mastery.
