Environmental Science summer work


Spending some time over the summer developing your understanding of this new course will mean that you are well-prepared for A-level studies in Environmental Science

The work

The summer worksheet will require you to engage with the concept of ‘Environmental Science’ and what it means to you, as well as introduce you to a range of key terms and begin considering why our planet has the ideal conditions for supporting life.

There are also some links to websites, videos, and podcasts which relate to various aspects of the course if you wish to extend your learning before starting in September.

  1. Carry out some research into the concept of ‘Environmental Science’ and complete a short piece of writing to produce an overview of your understanding. Produce a glossary of some key terms essential to the course.
  2. Undertake some reading into the ‘Conditions for life on Earth’ and answer some questions to demonstrate your understanding.

Full details and support can be found in the worksheet within the downloads below.
