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 landforms 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
|Learning Targets and Learning Criteria|
Students will: • identify there are different types of landforms found on Earth’s surface, including: o Coastlines, Dunes, Rivers, Mountains, Glaciers, Deltas, Lakes
• 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
• create a model to investigate ways to prevent the erosion of Florida’s landforms
Students will participate in a sinkhole lab
Students will sort and categorize the many different landforms found around the country, including those specific to the state of Florida
Students will look at a relief map, discuss, and review the rubric for the Florida Relief Map project (Due Oct 31/ Nov1st).
Pangea project due this Wednesday, October 16th. Test corrections due on 10/16/19. Florida Relief Map Project Due October 31/ Nov. 1st 2019.
ESE/ 504 : Extra time and small group will be available for the test. 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. Alternate assignments will be made available.
