Product Description
This HUGE integrated unit combines close reading of nonfiction passages with a hands-on lab. Students will read to gather information, they will research using QR codes and urls. They will gather evidence, complete responses pages and interactive notebook flaps and folds.

This unit has six pages of scientific nonfiction text. It has 14 interactive notebook inserts. 11 response pages with answer keys. This resource also has a hands-on lab and QR codes for research.

This resource is designed to meet the standard for NGSS Earths Systems:
MS-ESS2-2. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales.

MS-ESS2-3.
Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions

Science Concepts Addressed Include:
Layers of the Earth
Plate Tectonics
Plate Boundaries
Divergent Boundaries
Convergent Boundaries
Transform Boundaries
Mid Ocean Ridges
Seafloor spreading
Subduction
The Continental Margin
Constructing and Explanation Based on Evidence
Research
Making Inferences

Science and Engineering Practices Used By Students

NGSS Science and Engineering Practices used in These Lessons:
1. Asking questions
2. Developing and using models
3. Planning and carrying out investigations
4. Analyzing and interpreting data
5. Constructing explanations
6. Engaging in argument from evidence
7. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information


NGSS Standards Addressed:
MS-ESS2-2. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales.

MS-ESS2-3.
Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions

Utah SEEd
Standard 7.2.5
Ask questions and analyze and interpret data about the patterns between plate tectonics and:
(1) The occurrence of earthquakes and volcanoes.
(2) Continental and ocean floor features.
(3) The distribution of rocks and fossils.

Utah SEEd
Standard 7.2.2 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales. Examples of processes that occur at varying time scales could include slow plate motions or rapid landslides. Examples of processes that occur at varying spatial scales could include uplift of a mountain range or deposition of fine sediments.
