Weathering and Erosion PowerPoint and Interactive Student Notebook Lesson

Weathering and Erosion PowerPoint and Interactive Student Notebook Lesson

This 26 slide PowerPoint presentation and student guided notes addresses how the Earth’s land-forms are shaped and reshaped through both slow and rapid processes. This lesson describes the basic differences between physical weathering (breaking down of rock by wind, water, ice, temperature change, and plants) and erosion (movement of rock by gravity, wind, water, and ice). Students will be provided with examples of how physical weathering and the erosion processes change Earth’s surface (constructive and destructive). This PowerPoint uses stunning photographs that I have either purchased or taken myself. This lesson meets the 4th grade standards (NGSS: SC.4.E.6.4: and Common Core Standard: 4-ESS2-1). However this standard is tested on the annual 5th grade benchmark state exam. If you are a 5th grade teacher, use this lesson to review for your 5th graders.

FCAT 2.0 PHYSICAL Science- Grade 5 Review and Optional Game Cards

FCAT 2.0 PHYSICAL Science- Grade 5 Review and Optional Game Cards

This PowerPoint contains 115 FCAT 2.0 Science Grade 5 questions and answer slides. It covers all 37 PHYSICAL science standards that are taught throughout grades 3rd through 5th, but are tested on the 5th grade benchmark. As a 5th grade science teacher you are responsible for content previous teachers were supposed to teach in the earlier grades. Physical science makes up 29% of the FCAT science test. As I experienced, science in the earlier grades was overlooked because it was not tested until the 5th grade, or my students had “forgot” a lot of the content. This PPT reviews all the Physical Science standards. I use this as a review game. I have included the rules and directions for grudge ball, and have also included 32 Bazinga action cards and directions for that game. If you prefer not to use as a review game, this can be used for a ‘Problem of the Day’ or whole class test preparation. If I use as a Problem of the Day, I require that my students give me the correct answer, but also I require that they explain why the remaining three options cannot be correct. This is part of a review bundle. I have purposely broken it into each separate area of science. That way if you are strong in one area or didn’t get all content from another area, you can pick and choose which areas of review your students need. I have a lot of experience with benchmark state testing. When I taught 8th grade science, I was consistently ranked the 2nd or 3rd highest public school in the state. I moved down to teach 5th grade science and after my first year, moved up 18 spots, from last place in my county!

Squid Dissection Spiral Review STEM Activities

Squid Dissection Spiral Review STEM Activities

Are you looking for fun and engaging end of year science review activities? Squid Spiral Review STEM lesson will give your students opportunities to review vocabulary and concepts they learned earlier in the year. Your students will review Classification, Adaptations, Food Chain/Webs, and Basic Anatomy through the learning about fascinating Cephalopods! After your students have learned about cephalopods through short video clips, their interactive notebook and the PowerPoint, they will dissect a bait squid. The final project is to design their own squid to compete in “Squid Races”, while keeping in mind what they have learned about adaptations and jet propulsion. My 5th graders were very engaged and loved this lesson! I heard from both parents and teachers about how my students were talking about it out of class! Vocabulary Reviewed: Classification Kingdom Phylum Invertebrate Vertebrate Class Adaptations Food web Food chain Predator Prey Carnivore Herbivore Producers Consumers Internal Anatomy terms- gonads, brain, heart, ink sac, gills, pen, eye lens External Anatomy terms- mantle, eye, siphon, arms, tentacles, sucker cups, chromatophores, fin, mouth, beak Includes step by step directions as well as photos for the squid dissection and squid races. This is a great “first” dissection because there is no blood, and you can use bait squid. The bait squid are cheap and raised on a farm for bait. Since I work at an elementary school and we do not have dissecting equipment, I barrow dissecting scissors from our high school for the day of dissection. Some math is included in the lessons; data is collected and converted (cm, mm) and speed(distance/time) can be calculated from the squid races. Student also convert verified length of a giant squid into yards and meters to “see” how long the Giant Squid really is. For the engineering component students design their own squid and race them to see whose design travels the farthest or is the fastest. This is a fun and engaging thematic unit lesson that your students will talk about for years to come!

Interactions of Living Things PowerPoint and Interactive Student Notebook

This colorful and engaging 26 slide PowerPoint presentation lesson addresses multiple standards for the 4th and 5th grades. After this lesson students will be able to explain that animals, including humans, cannot make their own food and that when animals eat plants or other animals, the energy stored in the food source is passed to them. They will trace the flow of energy from the Sun as it is transferred along the food chain through the producers to the consumers. Students will be able to classify consumers as herbivores, carnivores, or omnivores, and further break the groups into predator and prey. Students will also be able to construct food chains and food webs for specific ecosystems. This lesson includes guided notes in an interactive student notebook. This bundle also includes a card sort activity in which students will first group by how they obtain energy, and then they will further break the consumers into herbivore, carnivores and omnivores, and finally they construct a food web for a saltwater marsh ecosystem. They are four embedded video clips, with specific questions pertaining to the information given during the video. As always each section is followed by a “Turn and Talk” giving your students an opportunity to discuss their newly gained knowledge. This is a bundled lesson that includes the student interactive notes and the Power Point presentation. Student discussions (Turn and Talks) embedded in presentation.
