Welcome to Ms Rapp's Website
The goal of the AP Environmental Science course is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world, to identify and analyze environmental problems both natural and human-made, to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and to examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them.
Environmental science is interdisciplinary; it embraces a wide variety of topics from different areas of study. Yet there are several major unifying constructs, or themes, that cut across the many topics included in the study of environmental science.
7th Grade Life Science
The seventh grade Life Science class is designed to introduce the students to the variety of life forms: the characteristics of Prokaryotes, Protists, Fungi, Plants, and Animals. We will also visit the concepts of Heredity, Adaptation, Ecology and Human Systems. This is an introduction to the major branches of Life Science, including Anatomy, Botany, Ecology, Microbiology, and Zoology.
