Earth Science

  • The Earth Science curriculum is designed to teach the students more about the world in which they live.

  • The unit begins with the origins of science and the men of science (most of them who believed in God and held to the Biblical account of creation).

  • The students will learn that the earth cannot be studied without first looking at it in context of the entire universe.

  • The Earth’s motions, the constellations, sun, moon, planets and the exploration of space will be studied before heading back to earth.

  • The character trait of inquisitiveness will be emphasized throughout the year as we seek to know more about God and his creation.

Absentee make up policy
Absentee Make-Up Policy

  • Students who miss school because of illness can have their guardian call the school and request assignment information.

  • If you know that you will be missing school because of some other reason, please let me know ahead of time so that I can get the work together for you.

  • Students going on a family trip must notify the school no later than one week before the trip, or it will be recorded as an unexcused absence.

  • The number of days absent determines when the make-up work is due. (Example—absent 2 days—homework is due two days after returning back to school). All make-up work must be turned in before the student takes the chapter test.

  • No absent work will be accepted after the test is taken.


  • Students will receive 10 points for every homework assignment that is completed properly.

  • The answers must be written in the form of complete sentences.

  • Quizzes will be worth 20 points each.

  • Tests are worth 100 points each.

  • The student’s grade is a percentage based on points earned divided by points possible. Long term projects points will vary therefore will be announced at the time that they are assigned.

  • Ask me about “Engrade”!

Looking forward to a great year
