Environmental Science

Environmental Science is a year-long science course designed by Roosevelt students to introduce the science of the world around us and the challenges we face.  In our class, we use laboratory activities, guest speakers, new 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 modules:

  • 1st Quarter
    • History of Environmentalism
    • Pollution
    • Water, Streams & Rivers
    • Metrics (HHEI, ICI, Citizens QHEI)
  • 2nd Quarter
    • Wetlands
    • Global Warming & Climate Change
    • Natural Resources
  • 3rd Quarter
    • Population Growth
    • Biodiversity & Species Loss
    • Food & Agriculture
    • Soil & Biocycles
  • 4th Quarter
    • Alternative Energy
    • Sustainability
    • Earth Day & Action
    • Stream Studies & Hiram Field Trip
    • Final Project

As much as possible, class assignments will be completed online so as to avoid using paper unnecessarily.  Many of these assignments will be completed using Google Classroom.
