|Unit of Instruction||Earth Structures|
SC.6.E.6.2 (DOS Level 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 land forms as they apply to Florida.
NOS Focus: Benefits and limitations of models.
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 benchmark
|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
Students will participate in a station lab on weathering, erosion, and deposition.
Students will use their ISN to review for the DIA 3
Students will be assessed on their knowledge of Earth Structures through the DIA.
Study notes using the ISN for Thurs/Fri Earth Structures Test (DIA 3)
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.
