Includes: Unit Teacher Guide (poster project directions and picture example, interactive brochure directions and picture example, unit explanation, standards), Student Packet (all WebQuest components), Assessment Rubrics
This unit is designed to lead students through the Next Generation Science Standards for 5th grade. This packet focuses on Earth’s Systems: Earth’s Spheres and The Next Generation Science Standard:
5-ESS2-1. Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.
Students will use a WebQuest to learn more about the Earth's four spheres. The WebQuest leads into a poster project that can be created with group members.
Teachers will also lead students while creating an interactive brochure focusing on the Earth's spheres.
The unit is purposefully written to give teachers the ability to introduce and change as they feel would be best for their teaching style and student ability.
Bill Nye the Science Guy: Atmosphere Classroom Edition, produced by Disney, would be a wonderful introduction to the unit.
An answer key for the WebQuest and a rubric for the poster are provided.
