Students observe the effects of water erosion on soil. They construct a hill that slopes gently from one end of the pan to the other and predict what will happen when the group sprinkles water on its hill. They compare their results and formulate a hypothesis, as a class.
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.
Third graders define and recognize the characteristics of erosion based on their reading. In this erosion reading activity, 3rd graders prepare a graphic organizer showing various types of erosion. Students answer comprehension question about erosion related to the book.
Learners 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.
