Welcome to Mr. Waugaman's Class
Courses: Regents Earth Science and Syracuse University Earth Systems Science
Welcome to ALCS Earth Science!
Earth Science is a comprehensive Regents Science course. In this course, students will learn about the natural world around them. We will learn how the Earth is a system composed of many smaller systems that all interact together. Semester one will consist of major concepts in Geology including: Rocks and Minerals, Models of the Earth, Layers of the Earth, Earthquakes/ Plate Tectonics. Semester two will include: Weathering and Erosion, Landscape development, Weather and Climate, and Space.
Every Monday, I will post a Calendar on our Teams page that explains the assignments your child should be working on each day throughout the week.
Earth Science also has a Lab component to the course, that is required by NYSED to sit for the Regents Exam in June. The students will work collaboratively to complete many hands-on laboratory experiences throughout the year.
If you have any concerns or issues, please contact me via email.
