Course Outline:

Earth Science 11

Earth Science 11 explores both current issues that our planet is facing as well as processes that have shaped the planet we call home. The course focuses around five big ideas: how Earth materials are formed, changed and used as resources; tectonic plate motion and theory; how weather systems are created and impacted by climate change and water distribution; and the explanations of the origin and interactions of Earth within the solar system through Astronomy. The course delivers instruction through lessons and media, and students make notes through learning packages. There are assignments, chapter tests and projects in which students will apply their understanding and develop competencies.

Students may take this course as part of the EBUS Academy pre-science program. The EBUS pre-science program offers students an opportunity to take online science 11 and 12 courses and access enriched learning opportunities through the University of Northern BC (UNBC).
