Follow investigative procedures to study a phenomenon
Discuss how natural and man-made events can alter Earth systems.
Have an appreciation for the importance of chemistry in their daily lives

CONTENT OUTLINE:
Introduction to chemistry and safety in the laboratory
Discussion about what systems are and how we can model them
Using chemical reactions to investigate air pollution
Model Earth events such as volcanoes, meteor strikes, and plate movement (earthquakes)
Study cloud formation and the water cycle
Investigate how erosion can change land forms
