Looking for Environmental Science or Earth Science lessons for a 1:1 classroom or virtual learning environment? This HUGE bundle of lessons, labs, and field activities is the perfect fit! Your students will be engaged while learning about plate tectonics, rocks, minerals, soil, and energy sources from an environmental point-of-view. Even better- you can assign the lessons to your students using Google Classroom or other online platforms in a SNAP! No more planning!
➤Topics: layers of the earth, plate tectonics, plate boundaries, natural environmental disturbances (volcanoes & earthquakes), properties of minerals, impacts of mining, soil horizons, erosion, soil conservation, soil texture, soil profiles, porosity and permeability, effects of agriculture on soil quality, energy efficiency, fossil fuels, renewable energy sources, distribution of global energy resources, energy conservation
The notes and projects are designed to facilitate independent learning on student devices and are ideal for sub plans or simply to encourage self-instruction of concepts. Activities and extension pages provide opportunities for class discussion and interaction while adequately preparing students in data analysis and graphing.
Note: This bundle is perfect for a distance learning situation, but some lab activities may need to be saved until students are in the classroom.
➤Each lesson includes:
1. Lesson- Content & vocabulary gained through web-quests, internet links, videos, and/or PowerPoint presentations. Students type notes on digital documents using their individual devices.
2. Activity- Labs, games, or class activities designed to apply the concepts learned in the lesson. Some of these can be completed independently on a student device. Some will need to be done in a classroom setting.
3: Assessment- Quiz, assignment, exit ticket, or project as a culmination and review of lesson
4: Extension pages- Resources to practice graphing, data analysis, critical thinking, or research
*Over 140 pages in all!
*For details on each of the lessons, please click on the PREVIEW button for each individual lesson.
*Please note: This paperless bundle is made for a classroom in which students have access to their own device (1:1 classes). If this is not true of your classroom, you may want the printable version of this bundle.
This curriculum is ideally geared towards high school students, but is appropriate for any student looking for an independent, student-centered approach to learning.
BONUS: Students use recycled materials to build a Berlese funnel to find and identify organisms in the soil.
