Earth Systems Unit
Rock Cycle / Minerals / Soil / Soil Conservation
The three power points included have over 400 slides covering the second two sections of the Earth Systems Unit. This ONLY covers the second two sections (6.E.2.3 and 6.E.2.4), which covers the rock cycle and soil.
The Topics are:
2. Rock Types
3. Rock Cycle
4. Minerals: Formation and Properties
5. Soil Composition and Formation
6. Soil Properties
7. Soil Conservation
This is specifically tied to North Carolina Essential Standards, or NC Essential Standards for 6th grade. The PPT is designed to cover in detail the unpacked standards.
However, this is an awesome teaching tool for any unit focusing on Rocks and Soil. This will certainly fit most states standards.
Included in the PPT are:
-Printable unpacked standards
-Pre-Test and Post-Test with answer keys
-4 vocab quizzes with keys
-6 sets of guided notes for students who need modifications with answer keys to go along with PPT teaching
- 1 Crystal Growing Lab
- Rock Cycle Reading Passage
- Mineral Reading Passage
- Bingo Review
- Link to Kahoot Review created by me to match this unit
- Link to Digital Worksheet on Wizer Me created by me to match this unit
-unit PowerPoint (300 slides) teaching in detail the unpacked standards of these two SECTIONs of the unit and necessary background information! Things that I require my students to write in their notes are in red.
Normally, I list an ENTIRE UNIT, but I am finding this unit to be HUGE! So, I listed this unit in two parts. The first half is listed separately here: Earth Systems Unit: Layers of the Earth and Tectonic Plates Unit Bundle
