Reuniting Pangaea- Continental Drift Lesson
shaynaashaynaa

Reuniting Pangaea- Continental Drift Lesson

(1)
In this 2 part-lesson, students will collect data on fossil evidence and create their own landmass map with various colors to represent the locations of fossil discoveries. Then, they will cut out the landmasses and reassemble them logically to create a giant supercontinent (Pangaea). Students will share their decision and reasoning on the evidence with their group or partner, along with answering 4 conclusion questions. The teacher will post the correct landmass model key and students will glue their Pangaea into their science notebook. On Day 2, the teacher will read a passage on Alfred Wegener. Students will receive 10 sentence strips from the teacher and will use context clues to sequence the strips to create a timeline representing the historical development of the plate tectonic theory. At this point, the class can have a gallery walk and discuss the event sequence (optional). The lesson will conclude with students answering conclusion questions over the 2-day lesson and writing a summary in their science notebook describing the historical evidence that supports the plate tectonic theory.

Moon Phases Reciprocal Learning Activity
shaynaashaynaa

Moon Phases Reciprocal Learning Activity

(0)
This reciprocal learning activity gives students the opportunity to practice identifying and predicting moon phases. It also includes some information on the positions of the Sun and moon as they effect tides. The product also includes some bonus material that students can use prior to this activity to make sure they are comfortable and familiar with the moon phases when the Sun is located on the right side of the diagram and the left side of the diagram. What is the Reciprocal Learning Strategy? Reciprocal Learning is a student-pairing strategy designed with the principles of effective coaching in mind. Each pair of students forms a learning partnership committed to helping each other reach a particular learning goal. Each student plays two roles: as the player, each student works to complete an activity or solve a problem while “thinking out loud”; as a coach, each student observes the player’s work and listens to the player’s thinking while providing praise, feedback, and clues that help the player complete the activity. Because of these dual-roles, the power of learning is effectively doubled. In this activity, each player is given 12 unique problems to solve as their coach guides, encourages, and provides support when needed. After these 12 problems are completed (and correct), the students switch roles and the second player solves 12 different problems as the other player coaches.
