Middle School Earth Science  

Instructor: Melanie Clark, MS

PRICE: $500 per semester.  This is a Year-long course.​

The class will meet with both in-person and virtual learners together.

Our topics will include Astronomy (study of outer space), Geology (study of rocks, earthquakes, volcanoes, and plate tectonics), Meteorology (study of the atmosphere, climate, and climate change), and Oceanography (study of the oceans and water systems). This course will use hands-on experimentation, activities, and direct instruction. You will be enabled to learn the ‘how’ and ‘why’, not just the ‘what’ of science. I will show how Earth Science is relevant in your everyday life; you must provide the willingness to learn!
