Take an Interactive Tour of Environmental Science.
The program components include:
Environmental Science immerses students in real-world phenomena. The program drives student learning through a series of anchoring phenomenon projects, investigative phenomenon case studies and hands-on and student experiences that support their understanding of the phenomenon under study.
Anchoring Phenomena: Launch every unit with an engaging Anchoring Phenomenon that introduces and unifies the upcoming environmental science concepts. Students ask questions and gather evidence about the phenomenon on their sense-making journey as they track their knowledge in a Claim-Evidence-Reasoning or Modeling document. At the end of the unit, students solidify their mastery of the concepts behind the Anchoring Phenomenon.
Case Study Phenomenon: Investigate phenomena with the Chapter Case Studies. This engaging real-world case encourages students to draw connections between environmental science and their life. Chapter content ties back to the case, providing a storyline for students to follow.
Hands on Inquiry: Editable hands-on inquiry activities, such as In Your Neighborhood labs, Modeling Labs and QUick Lba support student understanding of the phenomenon under study.
Local Issues: Take it Local and 3D Geo Tours on Savvas Realize encourage students to find a similar situation in their local environment. This extension personalizes the case study for students, making the content even more relevant.
Environmental Science digital courseware on Savvas Realize™ includes robust digital tools that give teachers flexibility to use a digital, print, or blended format in their classrooms.
