Discover Oklahoma's first farmers. Read about 14 different agriculture workers and their contribution to Oklahoma's farming. After reading, have your class complete several activities such as researching an agriculturist, writing a research paper, creating a wanted poster, and working on an Oklahoma map. Note: There are a variety of cross-curricular applications provided in this resource.
Students are introduced to the causes of plate movements and the hazards they present. They plot the location of 50 earthquakes and 50 volcanic eruptions on a map and explore the relationships between plate tectonics, earthquakes, and volcanoes. In the final activity, they test the effect of volcanic gases on the growth of plants.
Students explore constructive and destructive forces. In this constructive and destructive forces instructional activity, students complete a WebQuest. Students explore the different types of forces and their effect on the surrounding geography. When finished, students create either a tornado or volcano.
Students explore agricultural concepts and how humans modify the physical environment. They participate in card sorting activities to determine agricultural concepts: Dependence, Adaptation, Modification (D. A. M.). Students identify common ways people deal with their environment.
An excellent set of slides that progresses through definitions and lists of physical and chemical weathering to discuss and help your students make notes. The slideshow then works through examples of the weathering categories, such as types of erosion. It finishes with a slide of questions that summarize the points given.
Learners examine the relationship between water retention and plant growth by conducting two experiments. They first compare the water retention qualities of clay, sand and loam soil types. Then they use the data from the first experiment to design the second plant growth and soil type experiment.
Students complete a unit on rocks and minerals. They explore various websites, identify the types of rocks, complete a crossword puzzle, conduct a mineral streak test, demonstrate how water breaks up rock, and create a commemorative stamp to honor a landform they have visited.
Learners explore U.S. geography by researching agriculture. In this dust bowl instructional activity, students complete a cause and effect worksheet based upon the dust bowls that covered a large portion of Oklahoma and Texas in the early 1900's. Learners conduct a small experiment using soil, aluminum pans and water in class.
Fourth graders inspect earth science by conducting a class discussion. In this water properties lesson, 4th graders examine a model of a watershed which demonstrates how water becomes polluted. Students collaborate in small groups in order to examine the water sources and pollution within their city.
