    Description

    This is a bundle of resources on Earth Science for Middle school. Purchase together here and save 20% This resource is designed to meet the NGSS Disciplinary Core Ideas: History of The Planet Earth, Plate Tectonics and Large-Scale System Interactions, Earth's Materials and Systems, The Role of Water in Earth's Surface Processes. Students will be engaged in hands-on labs and close reading passages to learn about Earth Systems and how they continually change our planet.

    This bundle Includes:

    The Rock Cycle Middle School

    Weathering and Erosion

    The Layers of the Earth

    Plate Tectonics

    Pangea

    Age of the Earth

    This bundle is a collection of resources designed to teach middle school Earth Science from the Earth Systems NGSS strand. It is aligned with both NGSS for Middle School. It is also aligned with CCSS for reading informational text.

    This resource is designed to meet the standard for NGSS Earths Systems:

    MS-ESS2-2. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales.

    MS-ESS2-1. 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.

    MS-ESS2-3.

    Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions.

    This resource is also aligned with Earth Science for 7th Grade Utah SEED.

    Utah SEEd 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 process of melting, crystallization, weathering, deposition, sedimentation, and deformation, which act together to form minerals and rocks.

    Standard 7.2.2 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales.

    Utah SEEd

    Standard 7.2.5

    Ask questions and analyze and interpret data about the patterns between plate tectonics and:

    (1) The occurrence of earthquakes and volcanoes.

    (2) Continental and ocean floor features.

    (3) The distribution of rocks and fossils.

    MS-ESS1-4. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence from rock strata for how the geologic time scale is used to organize Earth’s 4.6-billion-year-old history.

    Also

    Utah SEEd 7.2.6

    7th grade

    Make an argument from evidence for how the geologic time scale shows the age and history of Earth. Emphasize scientific evidence from rock strata, the fossil record, and the principles of relative dating such as superposition, uniformitarianism and recognizing unconformities.

    The following science concepts are addressed:

    The Rock Cycle

    Sedimentary

    Igneous

    Intrusive

    extrusive

    Metamorphic rocks

    Melting

    Crystallization

    Cooling

    Standards

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    NGSSMS-ESS2-1
    Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth’s materials and the flow of energy that drives this process. Emphasis is on the processes of melting, crystallization, weathering, deformation, and sedimentation, which act together to form minerals and rocks through the cycling of Earth’s materials. Assessment does not include the identification and naming of minerals.
    NGSSMS-ESS2-2
    Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales. Emphasis is on how processes change Earth’s surface at time and spatial scales that can be large (such as slow plate motions or the uplift of large mountain ranges) or small (such as rapid landslides or microscopic geochemical reactions), and how many geoscience processes (such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteor impacts) usually behave gradually but are punctuated by catastrophic events. Examples of geoscience processes include surface weathering and deposition by the movements of water, ice, and wind. Emphasis is on geoscience processes that shape local geographic features, where appropriate.
    NGSSMS-ESS2-3
    Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions. Examples of data include similarities of rock and fossil types on different continents, the shapes of the continents (including continental shelves), and the locations of ocean structures (such as ridges, fracture zones, and trenches). Paleomagnetic anomalies in oceanic and continental crust are not assessed.
    NGSSMS-ESS1-4
    Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence from rock strata for how the geologic time scale is used to organize Earth’s 4.6-billion-year-old history. Emphasis is on how analyses of rock formations and the fossils they contain are used to establish relative ages of major events in Earth’s history. Examples of Earth’s major events could range from being very recent (such as the last Ice Age or the earliest fossils of homo sapiens) to very old (such as the formation of Earth or the earliest evidence of life). Examples can include the formation of mountain chains and ocean basins, the evolution or extinction of particular living organisms, or significant volcanic eruptions. Assessment does not include recalling the names of specific periods or epochs and events within them.
