Earth Science Set
Earth Science: Beginning with a history of how the Ancients, Greeks, Europeans and Modern Astronomers viewed the earth, students will study the varying beliefs on origins, space distance, dating techniques and discovering small planetary bodies. They learn the concept of a galaxy, galaxy classification, and about protogalaxies. Students will study the earth's layers, the Continental Drift Theory, seafloor spreading, types of tectonic plates, volcanoes and earthquakes. The Greenhouse effect, climates, the biosphere, thermal layers, and the ozone layer are also studied. Students will learn mountain regions, the desert, the great central valley region and the coastal ranges. No lab activities noted.

Starline Press Science is a character-based, state standards aligned, individualized and independent learning curriculum. Each grade level provides self-directed instruction with minimal teacher supervision. Grades 3-8 complete twelve units (booklets) per year, with a suggested 3-week completion timeframe per booklet. Grades 9-11 complete 10 booklets per year. Each grade level incorporates vocabulary lists, fill in the blank questions, chapter reviews, unit review/tests, and labs at most levels. Consumable worktexts are colorfully illustrated soft covers, although newer printings are more like booklets and do not have the perfect binding and glossy covers. Please see publisher website for CA state standards correlation. Available only in complete sets with answer/test keys. ~ Deanne
