Middle school Earth Science will give homeschoolers a basic understanding of how nonliving things work together to facilitate the cycle of life that exists among the waters, skies, mountains, and valleys of earth.  Homeschoolers will study the planet earth itself as well as celestial bodies that rotate and revolve along with our planet.  We will study such disparate phenomena as glaciers, volcanoes, and hurricanes.  This course will serve as a foundation for more advanced high school courses that will explain the unseen forces that cause the events that are studied in middle school Earth Science.
