6 GET TO KNOW YOU GAME and class picture

7 Earth Science Geology Meteorology Astronomy Oceanography

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. litho atmo hydro bio

9 Scientific Method 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) 2. Stating a ____________ (explanation of observation; must be able to be tested) 3. _________ the hypothesis (involves measurement of one variable at a time) 4. Analyzing the _________ (data organized in graphs, tables, and charts) 5. Drawing _____________ (returning to step #2 as needed) ***This is not a rigid, step-by-step outline.*** problem hypothesis Testing results conclusions

10 ________- the standard for comparison in an experiment
Control ________- the standard for comparison in an experiment _______- all the variables we are not testing and trying to keep the same ___________________- factor in an experiment that may change if the independent variable changes _____________________- factor that the experimenter changes ______________- also known as SI units; uses a decimal base 10 system; such units as liters, meters, and grams. _______- explanation that is consistent with repeated observations, can be tested and make predictions, and is as simple as possible ____- basic fact describing behavior of a natural phenomenon Constants Dependent Variable Independent Variable Metric Units Theory Law

11 Humor: Charlie grows up

12 Geology Study of Earth, it’s Matter, and the processes that form and change the Earth Volcanoes Earthquakes Maps Fossils Mountains Land Use (Oil) Rocks Minerals Tectonics

13 Geologists Search for oil , study volcanoes, identify rocks and minerals, study fossils and glaciers and determine how mountains form

14 Meteorology Study of the Earths atmosphere. Weather Storm patterns
Ozone layer Acid rain Climates Hurricane Katrina

15 Astronomy Study of objects in space using technology. Stars Planets
Comets Galaxies Black holes Nebulae Earths origin

16 Oceanography

17 Vocabulary review Meteorology: Science : Earth Science: Geology:
Astronomy: Oceanography: Process of observing and studying things in our world Study of Earth and Space Study of Earth it’s matter, and the processes that form and change the earth Study of Earths atmosphere, weather, and the forces and processes that cause it. Study of objects in Space Study of the Earths oceans

18 Place Bold typed words in bubbles and then put other words in their
Earth Science category. Cross out words as you go. Astronomy, Geology, volcanoes, earthquakes, Earth Science, Meteorology, Oceanography, submersibles, hurricanes, waves, tornadoes, rocks, Mars, and Stars.

19 Quick Write Answer the following questions.
1. Hypothesize why dinosaurs became extinct. 2. Hypothesize how solar system began (Scientifically) .
