Students complete pre reading, writing, and post reading activities for the book The Changing Earth. In this guided reading lesson plan, students complete writing, go over vocabulary, answer short answer questions, have discussions, and more.
First graders discover plate tectonics. They observe the forces of erosion. They observe the forces of weathering. They state three ways the earth changes. They record observations and make conclusions about their observations.
Tenth graders organize information to explain how photosynthetic bacteria contributed to climatic changes that happened on Earth. Students create a timeline by using a storyboard to tell the story of the change.
Learners examine the tsunami of 2004. They look at what created the wave, the destruction it caused, and the needs of the survivors. Pupils utilize an interactive website that sheds further light on the causes of tsunamis and the types of organizations that assist the survivors. The lesson is packed with great activities, worksheets, a quiz, and a terrific culminating activity.
Students explore how the Earth's surface changes resulting in geological features and landforms. They perform a read-a-loud on Thomas Locker's Mountain Dance, complete a KWL chart, and create a landform using plaster of paris.
Pupils explore the layers of the Earth and the dynamic changes that they cause on Earth's surface. Volcanoes and earthquakes become the focus of the lesson as the Oregon State quarter and its Crater Lake images are linked to the topic.
Explore Earth and her amazing layers with this lesson on planetary change. Students will research the ways in which Earth's layers cause change. They will complete a "Tectonic Puzzle" and use a worksheet to answer questions about Earth's crust, mantel, and core. Web links and worksheets are included.
Fifth graders are introduced to the concepts of weathering and erosion. In groups, they rotate between different stations to discover how each process effects different landforms. To end the lesson, they discuss each change in the environment and how to slow the effects of erosion.
Students give examples of erosion and weathering processes. They determine causes of America's Dust Bowl phenomena.Students define erosion as the condition in which the earth's surface is worn away by the action of water and wind.
Fifth graders take a virtual field trip to Yellowstone National Park. They practice using new vocabulary pertaining to geyers. They use different technology tools to help them explain these concepts.
Third graders research animal habitats. In this environmental lesson plan, 3rd graders discover how animals adapt to environmental changes. After researching animals using the Internet, students construct a research paper.
Students observe and analyze weathering. In this earth science lesson, students demonstrate physical and chemical weathering in two experiments, then write questions for a class Jeopardy game.
First graders study ways in which the earth changes due to erosion and weathering in this series of lessons.
Students identify and explain that remote sensing can detect changes on the Earth's surface that occur over time, and name at least three: urbanization, deforestation, and succession. They select a global change issue to investigate and prepare a short presentation to the class with audio-visuals about their issue(s) or what are the hot topics in current events.
Young scholars identify materials as either chemically or physically weathered. They describe how a glacier can change the earth's crust, and identify at least five examples of changes in the earth's crust in their neighborhood.
Students explore the Earth's crust. In this earth science lesson, students participate in 2 activities that demonstrate physical and chemical weathering. Students also play Jeopardy with topics including volcanoes, earthquakes, weathering, glaciers, and plate tectonics.
In this wind and water erosion review worksheet, students examine 2 pictures and then respond to 2 short answer questions regarding erosion.
In this online interactive earth science quiz activity, 3rd graders respond to 15 multiple choice questions. Students may submit their answers to checked for accuracy.
In this earth learning exercise, students look at a pair of pictures to determine which one shows change by wind, and which shows change by water. Students then color both pictures.
A toolkit is something that has what you need to fix or make something. You just clicked on a teacher's toolkit for introducing the concept of coral bleaching in relation to climate change and changing sea temperatures. In it, you will find background information, a lab demonstration, student worksheet, and helpful web resource links. The purpose of the lesson is to help children see firsthand what can happen when a fragile plant/animal like coral is submitted to the effects of climate change as seen throughout the world today. They will experience reading satellite sea surface temperature data, taking temperature readings, and draw conclusions about coral bleaching by engaging in a demonstration.
