5th Grade Science TEKS Planning Guide: Changes to Earth's Surface (Erosion, Landforms, Sedimentary Rock, and Fossil Fuels)

Updated 2021

Who is this for?

5th grade Texas teachers using the TEKS and Science Penguin resources

What is it?

This is a three-week schedule of activities to teach students about the formation of sedimentary rock and fossil fuels and recognizing how landforms are the result of changes to Earth's surface by wind, water, and ice (Unit 6). The majority of the activities themselves can be found in the Texas Science Mega Bundle or on my personal website.

This is my planning guide based on 5 days a week with 60-70 minute departmentalized classes. Every campus, teacher, class, and student is different, so trust your professional judgment when planning for your students.
