About this course

Students with scientific principles, concepts and methods necessary to understand the relationship of the natural world, in order identify and analyze both natural problems as well man-made, to assess the risks associated with this problems, and looking for other solutions or their prevention. This study meets the HOPE Rigor requirement.

Students use tests, models, research projects and activities to investigate communication between people, natural resources, the environment, and communication between people and their environment. Students refine their scientific process skills as they research and learn Earth biomes. By studying human nature, students will learn that nature and natural resources within them can be stored and stored for future use by people. Major concepts include: environmental

relationships, the environment, how nature works, biomes and environment, air pollution and its effects, water pollution and its effects, earth and soil, energy (past, present and future), and ongoing environmental trends of the future.
