Standard(s) Taught

SC.6.E.6.1 (DOS Level 2) 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.

SC.6.N.3.4 (DOS Level 2) Identify the role of models in the context of the sixth-grade science benchmarks.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

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

• create a model to investigate ways to prevent the erosion of Florida’s landforms

Classroom Activities

Students will create a model  relief map that shows land forms as they apply to Florida

Students will participate in an escape room 

Students will explore glaciers and plate tectonics using a simulation lab











Assignments Due

Relief map due on 10/31 and 11/01. Please see ISN for rubric and assignment directions.

SC.6.E.6.2   Recognize that there are a variety of different land forms on Earth’s surface such as coastlines, dunes, rivers, mountains, glaciers, deltas, and lakes and relate these land forms as they apply to Florida.

Your assignment is to create a relief map of Florida based upon what you have learned about Florida’s landscape.  This map is to include: an outline of Florida, land forms, labels, and some sort of painted surface(s).   Please see the attached rubric on how this assignment will be graded. An example of a relief map and ideas for construction will be presented in science class. You will be given 2 days (1 early release) to work on their project in class if needed. All other project days are to occur away from class.  Late projects will be marked down unless there are extenuating circumstances.  Be creative and have fun!
