Earth's natural resources research project

Earth's natural resources research project

A research project for students to research and gain a deeper understanding of natural resources and the current problems facing the world. Includes requirements, sample project ideas, and brainstorming topics. Standard: (iii) Energy resources are available on a renewable, nonrenewable, or indefinite basis. Understanding the origins and uses of these resources enables informed decision making. Students should consider the ethical/social issues surrounding Earth's natural energy resources, while looking at the advantages and disadvantages of their long-term uses. This lesson is student-centered meaning: --it allows you to become a facilitator --happier teachers --happier students --happier administrators

Earth and Space Sciences

Earth and Space Sciences

The Earth and Space Sciences Unit contains all of the lessons from the Earth's Systems and Space Systems packets. These lessons include, "Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Water Cycle, Rock Cycle, Earth History, Seasons, Phases of the Moon, Eclipses, and Solar System." They support MS-ESS1 (Earth's Place in the Universe) and MS-ESS2 (Earth's Systems) of the NGSS. The handouts and included answer keys work together with videos and links found at http://www.howaboutscience.com/earth-and-space-science. Students may work individually if everyone has an internet connected device. If not, the videos can be projected and the handouts filled out as a group. Once students complete a handout, you may choose to discuss the answers and play the Kahout! (click the link on the home page to learn more about Kahouts!) Here are a few things to consider. If students are working individually it is helpful, but not required to have headphones or earbuds. If the sound is kept low even a large class of students can be successful without them. Also, because students find the directions very easy to follow, these are perfect for substitute teachers. And, because the videos are online, students with internet connections at home don't have to be at school to complete an assignment. My classes are typically action packed with labs and activities, but these video-based lessons require careful listening and focus. My classes are never quieter, which is kind of nice on occasion. Note! I would suggest doing a trial run before purchasing if you plan to have a large class of students working at individual computers. Internet connection speeds vary which may cause videos to load slowly. You might have everyone log on and try my free resource on TpT (or just go to a lesson and choose something) just to be sure you aren't going to have connection issues. If you do, then you can always project the videos and complete the handouts as a group. The video materials chosen are based on length, clarity, quality and how closely they align with the national standards. The lesson could be added as an introduction or as further exploration and could be completed as one activity or broken into smaller segments. "How About Science?" materials can be incorporated into your existing unit in various ways depending on your style of teaching and the ability level of your students.
