Year 11 - Stage 1 - Earth & Environmental Science A or A and B

Course Overview

At Stage 1, students consider a range of the Earth hazards that illustrate the dynamic nature of the Earth’s systems. Students critically examine the scientific evidence for the origin of life, linking this with their understanding of the evolution of the Earth’s hydrosphere and atmosphere. Students review evidence from the fossil record that demonstrates the interrelationships between major changes in the Earth’s systems and the evolution and extinction of organisms. They investigate how the distribution and viability of life on Earth influences, and is influenced by, the Earth’s systems.
