About Earth Science 4th. ed.

Earth Science, 4th Ed. is an expedition. Your students will find themselves climbing mountains, diving into the oceans, and launching into the skies on a quest to learn how the world works.

During this quest, students will find that Earth science is also a battle of worldviews. This text clearly introduces students to the secular theories of where everything they see came from. They critique these theories. For each secular theory, the text affirms the conservative biblical view of Earth’s history shaped by Creation, the Fall, and the Flood. Students’ Christian worldviews will be shaped and strengthened as they learn about tectonic processes, landforms and earth materials, fossils, the oceans and oceanography, rivers and lakes, the atmosphere, weather and storms, climate and environmentalism, the solar system, the universe and cosmology, and space science.

Homework:Out of class will be mostly reading the chapters and assigned exercises in the workbook. assign 2-3 hours of outside work per week.
Evaluation:Grades are made up of class participation, daily work, homework, extra credit activities, and chapter quizzes. A "Progress Report" will also be sent home each semester as well as an end of the year cumulative grade.
