This series is designed to provide students with a good overall understanding of the various geological and atmospheric processes that have shaped our planet from its formation to the present day. I have used these materials as an elective class for the past few years but they have also been used by several science teachers as a basic introduction to Earth science.
Unit 1 covers the following areas:
1 - The Big Bang and creation of the first stars.
2 - The formation of nebulae and the solar system.
3 - The basic structure of the Earth.
4 - The evolution of the Earth (Formation of the Moon, Late Heavy Bombardment, Oxygenation)
Other units in this series are also available. Please download the preview sheet for more details.
