In North Carolina, Earth and Environmental Science is a required high school science course for all students. Following the North Carolina Essential Standards for Earth/Environmental Science, I have four sets of flashcards that align with the big ideas of the course that I use for final exam review. This listing is for one set, but you can also purchase all four sets at a discount in a bundle.

This listing has two digital files:

  1. Lithosphere Flashcards - reviews weathering, soil, rocks, volcanoes, and earthquakes (one page of flashcards in a .pdf file format)
  2. Blank Editable Flashcard Template for 8 Cards - for adding your own additional cards for review if needed (one page template in a .docx word document file format)

These flashcards fit on the front of one sheet of standard 8.5" by 11" paper. This makes for easy copying so each student can cut out their own set of cards. On the printout, cut along the dotted line and fold along the solid line to create the flashcards. These flashcards can easily be stored in a small ziplock bag.

Use these flashcards as needed to support instruction and exam review in your classroom. Some suggestions for using these flashcards include:

  • Create Partnerships - Have student partnerships quiz each other using their flashcards in class. Encourage helpful partners (i.e. "It starts with an E." or "Convergent boundaries is your hint.") I walk around and make sure students are engaged in their partnerships and more importantly, understanding the meaning of the science content.
  • Give Time in Class - Give students 10-15 minutes of class time to study each day. For example, in the first five minutes, students read their flashcards silently. The next five minutes one student quizzes the other. This means for the entire five minutes, the same student is the "helpful teacher" and the other is the "learning student". In the last five minutes, the students switch roles. I spend a week on each of my four flashcard sets for the month leading up to the exam. As students become familiar with the flashcards I drop the first five minutes of silent reading.
  • Hold Student Accountable - Have a purpose for students to study the flashcard information beyond just the final exam. I have high standards and generally require students to write out all the flashcard information for a quiz (cue all the student groans now). At the front of the classroom, I put the front of each card (and sometimes a few hints) as students furiously write for the quiz. Since there are four weeks of this, I do tweak this process week to week to maintain student interest.

Additional earth and environmental science exam review suggestions can be found on my website.

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.
NGSSHS-ESS2-1
Develop a model to illustrate how Earth’s internal and surface processes operate at different spatial and temporal scales to form continental and ocean-floor features. Emphasis is on how the appearance of land features (such as mountains, valleys, and plateaus) and sea-floor features (such as trenches, ridges, and seamounts) are a result of both constructive forces (such as volcanism, tectonic uplift, and orogeny) and destructive mechanisms (such as weathering, mass wasting, and coastal erosion). Assessment does not include memorization of the details of the formation of specific geographic features of Earth’s surface.
