Environmental Science

Environmental Science is a year-long science course originally designed by Roosevelt students to introduce the science of the world around us and the challenges we face.  In our class, we use hands-on laboratory activities, outdoor field work, collaborative technology and field trips to develop scientific understandings that will allow us to appreciate what’s happening in our environment.

In this course, we study environmental issues organized in the following units that align with the College Board’s AP Environmental Science course design:

  • 1st Quarter
    • History of Environmentalism
    • Unit 1: The Living World: Ecosystems
    • Unit 2: The Living World: Biodiversity
  • 2nd Quarter
    • Unit 3: Populations
    • Unit 4: Earth Systems and Resources
    • Unit 5: Land and Water Use
  • 3rd Quarter
    • Unit 6: Energy Resources and Consumption
    • Unit 7: Atmospheric Pollution
    • Unit 8: Aquatic and Terrestrial Pollution
  • 4th Quarter
    • Unit 9: Global Change
    • Unit 10: Sustainability
    • Stream Studies & Hiram Field Trip
    • Final Project

Class assignments will be split between being completed online and on paper.  Many of these assignments will be completed using Google Classroom.
