Unit 3 Landscapes and Surface Processes Unit Plan

Resource:
Unit 3 Landscapes and Surface Processes Unit Plan

For nearly five billion years, the Earth's surface has been constantly built up and broken down by processes taking place above and below the Earth's surface, resulting in the wide range of beautiful and complex landscapes we see today. In this unit, students will continue to make connections between the Earth's systems when they study interactions between the lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere by investigating the rock cycle, and the erosional processes of streams, wind, wave action, and mass movement.

Unit 3 Monument Mayhem Performance Task

Using evidence from a samples of rock collected at two different monuments on Earth, the ESRT, and activities from class, develop a scientific claim about which monument is in most immediate need of repair, and support this claim with specific evidence referenced from this unit.

Unit 3 Patterns of Erosion and Deposition in Streams 5E Instructional Model Plan

The dynamic nature of streams is vital to civilizations, providing civilizations with drinking water and water for farming. Running water transports more material on Earth's surface than any other agent of erosion. In this 5E sequence students learn about the patterns of erosional-depositional systems in streams through observations of a stream table. Students will also work to develop their own explanation as to how rivers and streams work to constantly alter the surface of Earth.

Resource:
Unit 3 What's Changing Earth's Surface? 5E Instructional Model Plan

Students learn about mechanical weathering, chemical weathering, and erosion by modeling a range of weathering and erosional processes and sorting them into categories. Students then read a text about the difference between mechanical weathering, chemical weathering, and erosion and use this understanding to make evidence based claims about the kind of surface processes they modeled in the explore phase and to explain how sinkholes are formed. Finally, students learn about factors that affect weathering rates and use that understanding to explain how another surface feature was formed.
