What does this cover? An informative, effective, engaging, and LOW PREP activity covering various geoscience processes that change the earth's surface quickly, slowly, and on small and large scales.
What background knowledge do my students need? Students should know what the process of convection is. This product does not dive into the specific details of each process (earthquakes, volcanoes, weathering and deposition, etc), but more of a general overview of how different geoscience processes occur due to movement that causes major changes in the earth's surface.
See other products for more details on each process:
This product contains:

Many students these days have a terribly difficult time comprehending nonfiction & informational text - textbooks, websites, articles etc. This product offers a more simple option for students to read, apply, and comprehend what they read - This is a GREAT tool to help your students overcome the obstacle of comprehending science text. These "Read & Apply" products are designed to cover ONE basic science topic per lesson for students to build a solid foundation before moving to the next topic & building that "house of knowledge" on the foundation.
Each reading passage is simple & not overwhelmingly long like textbooks are. Students can listen to you read, read silently, in partners, or in small groups highlighting important words and concepts as they go. The students then apply what they read with an activity & responding to a writing prompt.
Don't use interactive notebooks??? Just use colored paper!! Glue the passage to one side and have the students do the interactive activity on the other! Or use for a file folder activity or bulletin board! Can easily be 3-hole punched to put in a binder, hung on the wall, or slide into a folder!!
This product was created with middle schoolers in mind, but could definitely be used to accommodate high school students that need a review of the basics or for SPED students!
