Earth science students,

Below is a link to the final project you will be completing. Please make sure to attach an argumentative essay rubric to your final project. Make sure to read the entire project sheet and be sure you are using at least all three sources (and that you cite it in a ‘works cited’ page).

Earth science students,

Below is the topic review guide (with the approximate date we learned it) for the test that is coming up on Wednesday, 4/1.

The topics have yet to be updated with more details by later tonight.

Note: The take home test and the test you will be taking on 4/1 will have a lot of overlap with regards to meteorology. I will be giving you back your take home test answer sheets so that you can use it on Monday and Tuesday to study for the test on 4/1. I’m hoping that it will be helpful to you.

  2. Behaviors of Wave Energy (2/24)
  3. Surface Properties and Light Absorption (2/25)
  4. Heat Transfer (2/26)
  5. Specific Heat (3/2)
  6. Greenhouse Effect (3/3)
  7. Phase Changes (3/4)

Meteorology:

  1. Atmospheric Temperature (3/5)
  2. Atmospheric Pressure and Density (3/9)
  3. Surface Winds (3/10)
  4. Global Wind (3/11)
  5. Moisture in the Atmosphere (3/12)
  6. Relative Humidity and Dew Point (3/16)
  7. Cloud Formation (3/17)
  8. Air Masses (3/18)
  9. Fronts (3/19)
  10. Weather Instruments (3/20)

Earth science students,

Below is the link to the take home test that is due on Friday, 3/27.

3rd Quarterly Take Home Exam

Please take your time with this, work together, and be sure every answer is the correct one as this test is meant to boost your grade!

– Mr. Paccione

Check Your Labs!

Earth science students,

Please check your Jupiter accounts for the updated labs I put in over the weekend.

You should all be at either 21 or 22 labs by now, and even one lab missing will bar you from the regents exam.

If you are at all concerned about the regents coming up in June, please come see me immediately about it.

– Mr. Paccione

Earth science students,

Here is the mock test that you will be completing tomorrow in class. Please print this off but do not complete it!!!
