Learners define the origin of rock samples and how surface core samples can tell us about the history and make-up of Mars. Candies are used as a Martian surface sample. Students study the samples and make a hypothesis about the cause of any texture. Learners then answer questions based on their investigations.
Fourth graders inspect earth science by conducting a class discussion. In this water properties instructional activity, 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.
Sixth graders engage in a lesson plan that is about the concepts of atmosphere and the weather conditions. They engage in research that uses a variety of resources in order to obtain information. This is used in order to help students reflect upon the responsibility of evaluating a personal role in air quality.
Students discover earth science by writing descriptive paragraphs. In 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.
Third graders examine changes in nature during a nature walk. For this natural change lesson, 3rd graders participate in a nature walk as they look for signs of decomposition, erosion, and deposition. They learn the associated vocabulary, and determine how the changes affect the ecosystem.
