Standard(s) Taught

SC.6.E.6.2  Recognize that there are a variety of different landforms on Earth’s surface such as coastlines, dunes, rivers, mountains, glaciers, deltas, and lakes and relate these landforms as they apply to Florida.
 
SC.6.E.6.1  Describe and give examples of ways in which Earth’s surface is built up and torn down by physical and chemical weathering, erosion, and deposition

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will: • identify that there are different types of landforms found on Earth’s surface, including:  Coastlines, Dunes, Rivers, Mountains, Glaciers, Deltas, Lakes, and Glaciers.

• differentiate landforms found in Florida (such as aquifers, caverns, and sinkholes, etc.) from those found outside Florida (such as mountains, glaciers, etc.).

Students will: • describe and cite examples of ways in which Earth’s surface is built up and torn down by physical and chemical weathering, erosion, and deposition .

• explain and differentiate the processes of physical weathering, chemical weathering, erosion, and deposition.

• use “systematic observations” to analyze changes in Earth’s surface over time.

Classroom Activities

Students will create a model of an aquifer 

Students will complete a graphic organizer to place into their ISN on erosion/weathering/deposition.

Students will sort and categorize different situations of erosion/weathering/deposition and give evidence for their sort strategy.  

Students will create a model of Florida’s landscape ( Due 10/31 and 11/01).  

Assignments Due

10/31 or 11/01- Florida relief map project. Rubric and directions found in the ISN.  There will be 2 days to work on this next week in class ( 10/28/29 and 10/30).  

Additional Resources

ESE/ 504 : Extra time and small group will be available for assignments. Scaffolding of the material and reading content based questions will be used. Copies of the power point will be made available for note-taking purposes. Content material will be read aloud to students if applicable.
