Next Generation Science Standards:*

HS-ESS2-3: Develop a model based on evidence of Earth’s interior to describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection.

5E Model Phase: Elaborate

Science and Engineering Practice: Engaging In Argument From Evidence

Learning Target: Students will identify examples of claims, evidence, and reasoning.

Success Criteria: I can identify examples of claims, evidence, and reasoning.

Learning Target: Students will connect reasoning to evidence to support a claim.

Success Criteria: I can connect reasoning to evidence to support a claim.

Preparation:

Provide each student group with the Exploring Evidence Directions, Help Card, and complete set of C-E-R cards. (To increase the difficulty of this activity, remove the Reasoning cards. Ask students to provide their own reasoning to connect each piece of Evidence to the appropriate Claim.)*

Each student will need the activity analysis worksheet.

Prior Knowledge:

Students would benefit from having already addressed ESS1.C regarding the history of Planet Earth, but it’s not absolutely necessary. Because this is an Elaborate activity, students should have participated in Explore and Explain activities that introduced evidence for Earth’s structure like seismic waves, Earth’s magnetic field, and the composition of meteorites.

Directions:

Students will sort cards into Claims, Evidence, and Reasoning piles. There are two Claims provided. They will identify which pieces of Evidence and Reasoning support each of the Claims.

NGSSHS-ESS2-3
Develop a model based on evidence of Earth’s interior to describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection. Emphasis is on both a one-dimensional model of Earth, with radial layers determined by density, and a three-dimensional model, which is controlled by mantle convection and the resulting plate tectonics. Examples of evidence include maps of Earth’s three-dimensional structure obtained from seismic waves, records of the rate of change of Earth’s magnetic field (as constraints on convection in the outer core), and identification of the composition of Earth’s layers from high-pressure laboratory experiments.
