Ch 26: GED Science - Earth Science and Geology: Help and Review

About This Chapter

The Earth Science and Geology chapter of this GED Science Help and Review course is the simplest way to master earth science and geology. This chapter uses simple and fun videos that are about five minutes long, plus lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to ensure students learn the essentials of earth science and geology.

Who's it for?

Anyone who needs help learning or mastering GED science material will benefit from taking this course. There is no faster or easier way to learn GED science. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who have fallen behind in understanding landform diagrams or the scientific study of the Earth
  • Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
  • Students who prefer multiple ways of learning science (visual or auditory)
  • Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
  • Students who need an efficient way to learn about earth science and geology
  • Students who struggle to understand their teachers
  • Students who attend schools without extra science learning resources

How it works:

  • Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.
  • Press play and watch the video lesson.
  • Refer to the video transcripts to reinforce your learning.
  • Test your understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
  • Verify you're ready by completing the earth science and geology chapter exam.

Why it works:

  • Study Efficiently: Skip what you know, review what you don't.
  • Retain What You Learn: Engaging animations and real-life examples make topics easy to grasp.
  • Be Ready on Test Day: Use the earth science and geology chapter exam to be prepared.

7 Lessons in Chapter 26: GED Science - Earth Science and Geology: Help and Review
What is Earth Science?

1. What is Earth Science?

Earth science is a field that includes geology, astronomy, meteorology, and oceanography. Scientists do research in these fields to discover past and future events. Learn about the dynamic field of earth science and how it affects our lives in this lesson.

How a Landform Diagram Describes the Geological Progression of a Landscape

2. How a Landform Diagram Describes the Geological Progression of a Landscape

This lesson describes what a landform diagram is. We'll also discuss some basic laws of geology that can help scientists deduce both the order of events that create a landform and the geologic events that occur after a landform's formation.

Effect of Erosion and Deposition on Landforms

3. Effect of Erosion and Deposition on Landforms

Landforms are constantly being broken down and reformed by the processes of weathering, erosion, and deposition. In this lesson, we explore chemical and physical weathering and how the face of the earth gets changed.

What Are Paleontology & Archaeology? - Definition, History & Facts

4. What Are Paleontology & Archaeology? - Definition, History & Facts

While they do have similarities, paleontology and archaeology are two fields with different goals. In this lesson, you'll learn about these unique sciences, as well as some of the sub-disciplines that fall under each.

Resources and Reserves: Definitions & Examples

5. Resources and Reserves: Definitions & Examples

You might hear a lot about reserves and resources on Earth, but what exactly is the difference between the two? In this video lesson, you will learn about each, as well as how they represent different things that are quite related to each other.

Renewable & Non-Renewable Resources: Definition & Differences

6. Renewable & Non-Renewable Resources: Definition & Differences

We use a variety of Earth's resources, but not all of them will be around forever. This lesson explains the difference between resources that can be regenerated for our use and those that are gone after they are used once.

Subtropical Desert: Climate and Biome

7. Subtropical Desert: Climate and Biome

Have you ever found yourself in a hot, dry, desert landscape? If so, you might have been in a subtropical desert. In this lesson you will explore the climate and biome characteristics that make subtropical deserts unique and able to sustain life.
