What you'll learn

In this course about Planet Earth and Beyond you’ll work through three main sections:

  1. History of planet Earth – we’ll revisit some of the main points you covered in Year 9 about the formation of Earth and its moon, since it’s helpful to refresh your memory of those before we move into looking at aspects of Earth and the Moon in greater depth.
  2. Exploring planet Earth and our moon– we’ll explore plate tectonics and its connection with the rock cycle; clouds, weather and ocean currents; the layers of Earth’s atmosphere and winds; as well as the role of our Moon on the tides and in eclipses.
  3. Climate change– in this final section we’ll consider both the natural climate cycles seen in Earth’s past, as well as the current changes in climate that have been brought about by human actions.

How you'll learn

People learn in different ways. Here are some of the ways you can learn and interact with the materials in this online course.

Self-paced learning‚ This online course is set up so you can learn at your own pace. So, although there are 'suggested' times for each page, they're just a guideline. Plan your learning to suit you.

Diagrams, videos and interactions‚ Some people prefer to learn by reading, some by watching and listening, and some by doing. We've used diagrams, videos and interactions alongside the text, so that there's something for everyone!

Practice activities‚ Throughout this course there are lots of short activities. These activities are for you to check your own understanding, not for someone to mark them. These activities give you a great chance to practise what you've learned and compare your answer with the model feedback without being assessed.

Glossary‚ We'll be using some technical words and phrases in this course. To help you grow your vocab around the topics, the course includes an online glossary. When you see a word or phrase underlined in the text, move your cursor over it and a definition will pop up easy as! You can also choose to print a copy of the full‚ glossary.

Discussions‚ Sharing with others can also be a great way to learn. Talk with your classmates and teacher at school about the ideas you come across in this online course. Even chat to your whanau (family) at the dinner table about the things you're learning if you can explain the ideas to others, you can really be confident in your own understanding.
