The Physical Setting: Earth Science is related to the field of science called Earth Science.In this course you will be studying the different processes, relationships, mechanisms, and concepts that help us interpret our planet Earth.Geologists establish the age of rocks in two ways: numerical dating and relative dating.
Finally, students may need their Earth Science Reference Tables [ESRT] for parts of the lesson (a document used widely in the New York State Earth Science Regents course) as well.] This is the first, and one of the most important, lessons in the new unit.
The lesson starts with a brief introduction into dating techniques, eventually flowing into a distinction between relative and absolute dating (which will be discussed again later in the unit).
In this chapter, we will discover the relationships between weather variables and see how a change in one can affect a change in another.
We will focus on different types of weather patterns and see why certain regions have different atmospheric conditions.
After time expires (anywhere from 2-4 minutes depending on the type of Do Now and number of questions), we collectively go over the responses (usually involving a series of cold calls and/or volunteers), before I call on a student and ask them to read the objective out loud to start the lesson.
