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 Mineral Identification and Explaining Mineral Properties

Resource:
Unit 3 Mineral Identification and Explaining Mineral Properties

In this task students sort minerals by different characteristics, in order to learn the mineral classification system. Students then compare and contrast mineral molecular models in order to craft an explanation that accounts for differences in mineral properties.

Unit 3 Mineral Identification and Explaining Mineral Properties Lab

Resource:
Unit 3 Mineral Identification and Explaining Mineral Properties Lab

Students sort and classify minerals, then learn concepts that allow them to explain why each type of mineral has its own set of unique properties.

Unit 3 Monument Mayhem Performance Task

Resource:
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

Resource:
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.

Unit 3 Patterns of Stream Erosion and Deposition Lab (Less Scaffolded)

Resource:
Unit 3 Patterns of Stream Erosion and Deposition Lab (Less Scaffolded)

Students will explore the processes associated with stream erosion by observing an actual small-scale erosional-depositional system.
