The Impact of the Dust Bowl
Students explore the Dust Bowl and how if affected American farmers.
Rills and Thrills: Erosion Affects Me
Students discover earth science by writing descriptive paragraphs. For this erosion lesson, students identify the causes for erosion and define the different types of erosion such as wind, water and ice. Students write a description about the three different erosion types and their scientific causes.
Students research geology by completing an experiment in class. In this erosion lesson, students discuss how water can affect rock and cause land to become mis-shapen based on the power of waves. Students utilize rocks, watering cans, cups and buckets to conduct an erosion activity which they write about on a worksheet.
Ninth graders explore soil erosion. Through a class discussion, they examine soil conservation methods. Given a potted plant, 9th graders observe the effects of erosion when water is poured over the soil. Students brainstorm terms related to erosion. They write in a journal about activities that cause erosion.
Vanishing Coast: Erosion
Students explore the concept of erosion. In this erosion lesson, students discuss the effects of 2 classroom demonstrations that replicate coastal erosion.
Vanishing Coast: Erosion
Students evaluate earth science by examining a group of images. In this erosion lesson, students discuss how the force of water can reduce land and coastlines by the process of erosion. Students complete a worksheet about erosion, conduct a water experiment and listen to stories from an Alaskan Elder.
Students examine the Dust Bowl and the effects of farming practices in the early 20th century. They read a handout, and conduct and discuss two experiments simulating soil erosion.
Erosion: Changing the Face of Earth
Fourth graders explore how the landscape of the planet can be changed by different elements of wind, water, ice and chemicals through hands-on activities. They examine pictures of areas around town and discuss anything they think is out of the ordinary in the pictures. After creating hypotheses about what has happened in the pictures, they conduct experiments in groups about the type of erosion they believe to have occurred.
Breaking it Down - Weathering and Erosion
High schoolers examine weathering and erosion. For this weathering lesson students determine climates and models the processes of weathering.
Disappearing and Re-appearing Dirt
Students investigate the causes of erosion using internet research. For this erosion lesson, students explore satellite photos of erosion and the effects of erosion over time. Students develop a PowerPoint project as an assessment.
External Forces Shaping the Earth
In this shaping of the earth worksheet, students complete a graphic organizer as they read several passages, then answer six comprehension questions.
Gravity and Erosion
Students examine how gravity affects erosion and deposition through teacher demonstation, and discuss its impact on their communities.
Sea to Sky
Students investigate the Earth's major landforms and how they occur, and how engineers apply this knowledge for the design of transportation systems, mining, and measuring natural hazards. They listen to a teacher-led lecture, match vocabulary words with definitions, and answer discussion questions.
Dark Days on the Prairie
Fourth graders explore causes and location of the Dust Bowl and interpret photos from that period in Oklahoma history.
Students play a game where they classify the different characteristics of trees. In this tress lesson plan, students also use tree vocabulary and describe benefits of trees.
Third graders experiment with three erosive change agents. They do an observation log, which they present to the class through a song, poem or skit.
The Dirt We Depend On; Soil Destruction and Conservation Reading Comprehension Worksheet
In this soil destruction and conservation learning exercise, students read a three page non-fiction article. They answer 10 fill in the blank questions and 1 short answer question based on the reading about soil building methods.
Soil and Erosion Unit: Section 2
Students investigate descriptive information on North Carolina soil types and how the presence of plants affects soil erosion.
What's the Connection?
Ninth graders identify the relationship between the ocean and the weather. In this meteorology lesson plan, 9th graders research the relationship between the ocean, lithosphere, and atmosphere. They create a multimedia poster to illustrate the connections.
D. A. M. Agriculture Lesson Plan
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.
