This bundle includes Five great resources for Teaching Earth Science. Bundled together at a savings of more than 20%.
The Rock Cycle Unit
Weathering and Erosion Lab With Nonfiction Close Read and Interactive Notebook Flaps
I Have Who Has Rock Cycle Game
Rock Cycle Sorting Activities
This resource is also within the rock cycle unit and you are not charged extra for it.
Fossil Unit NGSS 3-LS-4 and 4-ESS1-1
This resource is huge and includes hands-on science lessons, nonfiction articles and reading activities, slide shows, response pages, interactive notebook flaps and folds, great science information, and several learning games and sorts that can be easily used as centers.
This resource is aligned with NGSS for 4th grade and Middle School.
4-ESS1-1. Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support an explanation for changes in a landscape over time.
4-ESS2-1. Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion
by water, ice, wind, or vegetation.
Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth's materials and the flow of energy that drives this process.
MS-ESS2-2. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at
varying time and spatial scales
And Utah SEEd Standard 7.2.1 Develop a model of the rock cycle to describe the relationship between
energy flow and matter cycling that create igneous, sedimentary, and
metamorphic rocks. Emphasize the processes of melting, crystallization,
weathering, deposition, sedimentation, and deformation, which act together
to form minerals and rocks.
NGSS Science and Engineering Practices Students Will Use Include:
Developing and Using Models
Planning and Carrying Out Investigations
Engaging in argument from evidence
Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information
NGSS Crosscutting Concepts addressed include:
