8 Earth Systems Although we study four branches of earth science, there are many interactions between earth’s systems. You are standing on the ______sphere. You are breathing in part of the ______sphere. If you went to the beach or canoed down the James you where visiting the ______sphere. And you and all the other living things on earth make up the _____sphere. Although we study four branches of earth science, there are many interactions between earth’s systems.

9 Scientific Method When solving problems scientifically we follow a series of steps to avoid wasting time, effort, and resources. These steps include: When solving problems scientifically we follow a series of steps to avoid wasting time, effort, and resources. These steps include: 1. Defining the ________ (may include research or observation) 1. Defining the ________ (may include research or observation) 2. Stating a ____________ (explanation of observation; must be able to be tested) 2. Stating a ____________ (explanation of observation; must be able to be tested) 3. _________ the hypothesis (involves measurement of one variable at a time) 3. _________ the hypothesis (involves measurement of one variable at a time) 4.
