Whether it's physical or life disciplines, science can be complex and mysterious, which creates a scientific phenomena.  Through observations, explanations, and experimentations, it can also be explainable, logical, and tangible — providing a solution to the phenomena.   This earth science course takes students through a series of phenomena, including light and heat, climate change and chemical reaction, and fish and stream.  It also includes light reflection activities and trout habitat projects for students to do in the classroom. By the end of each unit, they will be able to tell the story of a big picture phenomena.  The class content has been precisely curated, utilizing resources that engage students throughout the learning process.

In creating this Integrated Science course, we went great lengths to ensure that the content met the high standards for what teachers want to provide to their students and that the class content be high-quality, rigorous, and engaging for all levels of students. It includes materials from academically recognized publishers, such as EngageNY, Great Minds, and Khan Academy. The class content has been vetted for accuracy and effectiveness.

By the end of this Integrated Science Course, students will be able to:

Open Catalog

Understand the foundations of light and heat phenomena.
Identify the classification of earthquakes — cause of origin, depth of focus, and magnitude.
Define and model the CO2 molecule and greenhouse gas.
Understand crater classifications, their parts, and how they form.
Describe the relationship between dissolved oxygen and temperature.
Understand the energy changes that happen in a solar oven as a result of radiation.
Measure the amplitude and wavelength of a wave.
Define and identify renewable energy sources in the prevention of climate change.

The Learning Navigator’s catalog is rich with standard aligned, K-12 content that spans a variety of subjects. Teachers and students can search the free catalog to find, remix and share the content.

Overall, this course focuses on the foundations of Integrated Science.

Beyond helping students grasp key topics, it can also help them develop a strong foundational understanding of integrated science that will prepare them for more advanced subjects and may ultimately result in potential careers in STEM. The course also develops students’ critical thinking, as it allows them to draw their own conclusions from the information as they are learning it.  With the knowledge they gain from this class, students will be able to begin their own independent research.

Assessments are available at the end to review what they learned.

An end-of-course assessment evaluates whether or not students are fully competent on all units they have completed. Students who utilize this course to develop a stronger understanding of the basics of Integrated Science will be significantly more capable of moving on to further studies.
