Branches of Science
What is life science (biology)?
Zoology: The study of animals
Genetics: the study of heredity (DNA)
Ecology: The study of the environment
What is Earth and space science?
Meteorology: The study of weather and climate
Geology: The study of the origin, history and structure of the earth...the study of rocks.
Paleontology: The study of the forms of life that existed in prehistoric or geologic times
Astronomy: The study of the universe beyond the Earth's atmosphere
What is physical science:?
Chemistry: The study of the composition, properties, reactions, and the structure of matter
Physics: The study of matter and energy and the interactions between them
Life science is the study of living things. You need to identify the following 5 areas of life science.

Let's practice! Look at the picture and can you say whether it represents life, physical or Earth science? Can you identify the more specific branch of science?

Earth and Space Science is the general study of the Earth and everything beyond Earth's atmosphere. You need to identify the following 5 areas of Earth and Space Science.
Physical science is the general study of matter and energy. You only need to identify 2 areas of physical science.
There are three main branches of science.
life science (biology),
earth and space science,
physical science.
In sixth grade we will explore all three branches.
These are only a few of the basic branches of science. There are many, many more. Here are a few additional branches of science. Agriculture, Anatomy, Astrobiology, Biochemistry, Bioclimatology, Bioengineering, Biogeography, Bioinformatics, Biomechanics, Biomathematics, Biophysics, Biotechnology, Cell Biology, Conservation Biology, Chronobiology, Cryobiology, Developmental Biology, Ethnobiology, Ethology, Entomology, Evolutionary Biology, Freshwater Biology, Geobiology, Herpotology, Histology, Ichthyology, Immunobiology, Macrobiology, Mammology, Marine Biology, Medicine, Molecular Biology, Mycology, Neurobiology, Oceanography, Ornithology, Paleobiology, Parasitology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Physiology, Primatology, Protistology, Psychobiology, Toxicology, Virology, and .......................................
