Are you looking for a fun-filled, engaging way to teach weathering of rocks? This mini-unit is not just a bunch of worksheets. It includes 5 detailed lesson plans that guide you step by step through each lesson, interactive notebook pages, thinking routines, a comprehension passage, and mostly importantly HANDS ON investigations that are sure to spark curiosity and engagement in your students.
This resource provides rich, engaging lessons. Many of the lessons are based on the 5 E’s of science (engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate). Whether you are a novice science teacher or a teacher who’s been teaching for a while, you are going to love this unit! I have included rich photographs to support each lesson. This unit will save you hours of work because the research has been done for you.
