Earth Exploration: An Intro to Earth Science and Biodiversity

An introduction to Earth Science and ecology focusing on the properties and systems making Earth a unique living planet. Children explore topics of Earth and its placement among the solar system. They will gain understanding how Earth’s thin atmosphere protects and shields us from the hazards of space and study the complex ecology and biosphere with focus on food webs and biological diversity. Children will also continue their journey by virtually traveling within the Earth to discover the planet within: the core and its connection with magnetism and polarity.
