Language:English
Organization:It's About Time
Summary:The module, Earth System Evolution leads students to an understanding of changes in the earth system that have created the present physical environment and the evolution of life using a student based inquiry approach. The module consists of three chapters: Astronomy, Climate Change, and Changing Life. The chapters lead students from an understanding of the formation of our planet and its role as a subsystem in a dynamic universe, to an examination of the relationships between the physical environment and climate through time, and finally to an understanding of how and why the organisms found in their community have changed over time.
