Many thanks to those shown above for the generous sharing of these great earth science teaching resources!!!!
Recommended: 9th or 10th Test Prep: This course does not correlate well with any one test.
Earth Science is the "study of Earth and space, including rocks, fossils, climate, volcanoes, land use, ocean water, earthquakes, and objects in space" (Glencoe, 2002).

It covers some topics on the AP Environmental Science test and on the CLEP Natural Sciences test.
You would need to get other resources and do additional study to be able to do well on these tests.
Course Description: The main topics covered include: the earth’s origin, composition, and structure; plate tectonics and hydro plate theory; rock cycle; landscape evolution; geologic time; earth history; environment relationships; weather and climate; matter and energy cycles; and human impact.
The second semester will cover topics in the study of astronomy and cosmology.
