Standard(s) Taught

SC.6.E.6.2 (DOK 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.

SC.6.E.6.1 (DOK 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

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

SC.6.N.1.1 (DOK Level 3)
Define a problem from the sixth grade curriculum, use appropriate
reference materials to support scientific understanding, plan and
carry out scientific investigation of various types, such as systematic
observations or experiments, identify variables, collect and organize
data, interpret data in charts, tables, and graphics, analyze
information, make predictions, and defend conclusions.

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,

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

Students will:
• investigate the effects of physical weathering on the Earth’s Surface
• investigate the effects of chemical weathering on the Earth’s Surface
• investigate the effects of erosion and deposition on the Earth’s surface

Classroom Activities

Students will participate in a weathering/ erosion lab to determine if mechanical or chemical weathering has occurred.

Students will review a study guide on the topic of DIA 3: Earth Structures Assessment.

Student will be assessed on Earth Structures.

Assignments Due

DIA 3 Earth Structures assessment on School City Thursday 12/10 or Friday 12/11.

Additional Resources

ESE/504/ESOL Accomodations:

Students will be allowed multiple retakes for quizzes on Edgenuity. Students can have extended time on lessons and assignments. Students can have transcripts available to them and frequent breaks will be able to be taken.  Students can ask teacher to rephrase questions and extra help sessions are available twice weekly in addition to regular instruction.  In class students have the above provided plus preferential seating and reminders/encouragement when completing class work.
