This is a branch in the sciences that studies the earth and the atmosphere. At an early age, it could be taught as one branch but later, skills learned here will constitute the foundation for subjects like geography and geology. In earth sciences, kids learn about the earth and its different layers right to the core, internal processes in the earth that lead to earthquakes and tectonic movements. Studies will also aim at showing how some internal process lead to the formation of mountains and valleys and how during such processes, phenomena like earthquakes and Tsunamis come about. Also, some geomorphologic processes that shape and reshape the earth’s surface will be studied e.g. erosion, mass movements, weathering, etc. It is worth noting that internal and external processes that define the current state of the earth’s surface are interrelated. In addition to these processes, children will also learn about the atmosphere and processes that occur within it. e.g. the water or hydrological cycle, origin and effects of winds etc. Various layers of the atmosphere will also be studied together with the composition of the air and changes in air composition over different altitudes. The list of items studied in earth sciences is vast and diverse; but it will be exciting for kids to realize how much they could learn while observing coastal dynamics at the beach, how mountains and valleys were formed, why volcanic eruptions occur in particular places amongst others.
Kids could learn these phenomena by playing games on math4childrenplus. In addition to games, there are also worksheets that are highly illustrated and aid in the learning process. Also remember to watch some of the science cartoon tutorials we provide on the site. These resources are free and can be accessed at any time at home or in school.
