PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you teaching the new "Next Generation Science Standards?" This Fast and Slow Changes Unit is jam packed with hands on learning opportunities that are quick and easy to set up. This includes 9 experiments and one opportunity for your students to engineer their own experiment for weathering and erosion!

The following Next Generation Science Standards* will be covered in this unit:
2-ESS1-1 Some events happen very quickly; others occur very slowly, over a time period much longer than one can observe. (WEATHERING, EROSION, DEPOSITION}

{4-ESS1-1 Patterns of rock formations reveal changes over time due to earth forces, such as earthquakes. The presence and location of certain fossil types indicate the order in which rock layers were formed. (ROCKS, TYPES-IGNEOUS, SEDIMENTARY, METAMORPHIC, ROCK CYCLE)}

2-ESS1-1 Students who demonstrate understanding can use information from several sources to provide evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly. (Clarification statement: Examples of events and timescales could include volcanic explosions and earthquakes, which happen quickly and erosion of rocks, which occurs slowly.)

2-ESS2-1 Wind and water can change the shape of the land.

4-ESS2-1 Rainfall helps shape the land. Water, ice, wind, living organisms, and gravity break rocks, soils, and sediments into smaller particles and move them around.

2-ESS2-1 Students who demonstrate understanding can compare multiple solutions designed to slow or prevent wind or water from changing the shape of the land. (Clarification statement: examples of solutions could include different designs of dikes and windbreaks to hold back wind and water, and different designs for using shrubs, grass, and trees to hold back the land.)


I hope you and your students find this resource useful in your NGSS classroom.
