Two true or false statements are used as warm-ups to identify what students know, what they think they know, and what they will learn. A presentation follows along printable lesson. An answer key is provided. Each anticipation guide question follows their according Cornell and presentation to review the answer and acts as a warm-up.


A set of Cornell notes are provided. There are three versions: filled and fill-in-the-blank for students to complete. A presentation follows the Cornell notes and leads whole class, direct instruction. A summary section is included where students answer essential questions. A drawing section is made available for students to add their own drawings or pictures from the presentation. Each criteria is worth one point making each Cornell worth five points.


An activity follows after the Cornell notes in order to support and reinforce students' understanding of the content and provide students an opportunity to think critically by creating something new with the input received from the notes. There are five criteria: written portion, art, color, reflection component, and an “excellent." Each criteria is worth one point making each activity worth five points.


Presentation guides direct instruction as students follow along and complete their Cornell notes. Presentation revisits anticipation guide statements at the beginning of the lesson and at the end (serves also as warm-up), has built-in mini quiz at the end of each lesson to check for understanding (5 multiple choice questions with answers), pictures to help learn the material, and starter sentences to support students complete the summary section of their Cornell notes.


For easy grading, simply circle missing components or stamp to designate full credit. It’s that easy--I don’t take any grading home and I’m out of the door when the bell rings after school!!

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.
