Standard(s) Taught

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

Classroom Activities

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).
