Earthquakes:  Earth and Space SciencesQuick View

Earthquakes: Earth and Space Sciences

This lesson is an introduction to earthquakes and tsunamis, and is part of a five-lesson series on Earth Systems. This lesson supports MS-ESS2 (Earth's Systems) of the NGSS. The handout and included answer key work together with videos and links found at http://www.howaboutscience.com/earthquakes. Students may work independently if everyone has an internet connected device. If not, the videos can be projected and the handout filled out as a group. Once students complete the handout, discuss the answers and play the Kahout! (click the link on the home page to learn more about Kahouts!) 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 the ability level of your students and the availability of technology. 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.

Mapping Earthquakes to Save the WorldQuick View

Mapping Earthquakes to Save the World

In the Mapping Earthquakes to Save the World activity, students leverage real-time data to plot earthquakes on a world map. The fate of the world is in their hands – the President of the United States has asked for their help to save humankind. Students identify patterns in their data and connect earthquakes with tectonic plates, making recommendations back to the President about where people are safe and where people are most at risk. This activity was heavily inspired by a project from the Stevens Institute for Technology Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education. Topics addressed: Plate tectonics and earthquakes GPS coordinates Primary CT concept: pattern recognition. Students are finding real-world, raw data and visualizing it geographically, then looking for trends and patterns in that data to draw conclusions about where and why earthquakes are happening and are likely to happen again. Students will be able to: Develop a hypothesis about what causes earthquakes and collect data to evaluate their hypothesis Plot points on a world map using GPS coordinates Recognize geographic patterns on a map and relate them to tectonic plate boundaries Compose a persuasive letter explaining their findings using scientific reasoning and citing data Prep: Sync with your students’ math teacher(s) to understand your students’ experience to date with the Cartesian coordinate plane, so you can appropriately frame GPS coordinates for them Print the tectonic plate overlay on vellum paper or transparency film that is designed for your printer (laser or inkjet). In a pinch, printing it on relatively low-weight normal white paper will work as well – students will just have to hold their papers up to the light to see through. Suggested lesson breakdown: This lesson can be run within a single class period, or can easily be split over two days. 10min – introduction of the project 5min – students form hypotheses 10min – how to plot with GPS coordinates 15-20min – students plot earthquakes from live GPS data 5-10min – students plot earthquakes from live map data 5min – students compare their maps with tectonic plate overlays 10min – full class discussion on findings 30-45min – students write letters on their findings to the President For further information and relevant standards, please visit http://ct.excelwa.org/science/mapping-earthquakes-to-save-the-world/

Dinosaur video review tectonics, ecosystems, asteroid, meteorite, VERY engaging!

I left this lesson for a substitute and my classes just loved it so much they asked to watch it again when I came back. The video is The discovery channel 2015 documentary titled "Last Day Of The Dinosaurs" (you can find this to stream easy online, I provide a few links to help in your search, and buy it Amazon links) 56 minute video it is a little bloody and graphic due to some dinosaurs doing what carnivores do. This video takes you through the Asteroid that became the meteorite that helped make the dinosaurs go extinct and the rise of the mammals. Topics include Asteroid, meteor, meteorite Seismic waves and earthquakes Tsunamis Ecosystem imbalance Predators, prey, producers, fungi Nuclear winter Animal adaptations How a meteorite can cause massive scale destruction even on the other side of the earth. Great review video for the end of the year, the substitute said that the students where so caught up watching the video that they didn't complete the video follow along sheet. student sheet is 2 pages, I include a teacher sheet to help buy or find the video as well.

A Complete IB PYP Science Unit of Inquiry Earth's Structure and Landforms

Take the children to the centre of the Earth! Be the Miss Frizz of your classroom with this complete earth science, IB PYP unit of inquiry. How the World Works: Central idea: The Earth’s structure is constantly changing through processes and forces that can impact society. This unit is all about the amazing moving and shaking of our Earth’s surface, as we explore the science behind plate tectonics and how the processes under the Earth lead to the movement and changing of our world as we know it, how landforms are created and the cycle of the Earth’s life is at the hands of erosion and deposition. Go back 200 million years and explore Pangaea and make the connections between the world then and now. With over 140 pages of interactive, science foldables, flippables, hands on , engaging, inquiry based activities, this transdisciplinary unit will take you through math, critical thinking, writing, geography, reading for information and, of course, science. UK & USA spelling included. Lines of inquiry include: How is the Earth structured? How does the Earth’s crust move and separate? What causes different landforms? How do the changes in Earth’s surface impact humans? What tools do scientists use to detect and protect from potential natural disasters? A week long, collaborative summative assessment is an inquiry based project involving a mystery island that must be explored, researched and prepared for populating. The children are required to use their knowledge over the course of the unit, work as a team and present their findings, hypotheses and designs. Learning how to read clues from artefacts and also from evidence in the text, helped us to become incredible geologists as we had to figure out the answers to our lines of inquiry. This involved a lot of reading for information, analysing text and recognising non fiction text features. Through explorations within math, reading, writing, geography and history, the children gather knowledge of how plate tectonics contribute to how our world is shaped today. If you enjoy this complete unit of inquiry, you may also like my others: Ancient Civilizations, Rainforests and Food Chains, Adaptations of Living Things, Exploring Poetry, Exploring Explorers and many more found in my store and on my blog.
