GEOLOGY - 3500

Credits/Semesters: 0.5 credit/1 semester

Grade: 9, 10, 11, 12

Grad Require: Science - Physical

CTE POS: Environmental Science, optional

Prerequisite: None

This course will explore the systems and processes that have shaped (and continue to shape) this planet on which we live. As you will discover, constant change is the rule, rather than the exception. Special emphasis will be placed on the connections between the Earth and ourselves and how to interpret surrounding landscapes. Geology is a field science, so we will spend considerable time investigating outside. In addition to many short excursions, two full day field trips (one to the Columbia River Gorge, one to Mt. St. Helens) will be taken.
