Earth Science encompasses all fields of study that deals with planet Earth. This science looks at the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, ecosystems, oceans, inner Earth and all other aspects that impacts the Earth as we know it. We use physics, chronology, chemistry, and math to understand how our Earth works and how the Earth has changed over time. Earth Science can be found everywhere you look whether it is in your yard or in your house you will find Earth Science.
Earth Science, according to NC standards, has to relate back to the state. How are we impacting NFHS? Winston Salem? Forsyth County? NC? This is what Earth Science is all about relating our community to the whole Earth and how we can slowly impact the Earth.
