When you're assembling your sub folder, choose a meaningful assignment that will help build scientific literacy. This resource addresses the NGSS standards of critical thinking and communication skills including scientific literacy which apply to all of the benchmarks. In addition to sub plans, this resource is a great early finisher activity or enrichment activity for students during a unit in geologic time, solar system, or land forms. 

This activity includes:

  • 2 page document about vaping
  • 2 page worksheet including analysis questions applying what you've learned
  • suggested answer key
  • Easel activity

It is designed to take 5th-8th graders students one class period to complete independently. No prep or materials required. Also useful for early finishers or for enrichment.

Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence from rock strata for how the geologic time scale is used to organize Earth’s 4.6-billion-year-old history. Emphasis is on how analyses of rock formations and the fossils they contain are used to establish relative ages of major events in Earth’s history. Examples of Earth’s major events could range from being very recent (such as the last Ice Age or the earliest fossils of homo sapiens) to very old (such as the formation of Earth or the earliest evidence of life). Examples can include the formation of mountain chains and ocean basins, the evolution or extinction of particular living organisms, or significant volcanic eruptions. Assessment does not include recalling the names of specific periods or epochs and events within them.
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.
