Product Description
Next Generation Science Standard MS-ESS2-1: Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth’s materials and the flow of energy that drives this process. [Clarification Statement: 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 Boundary: Assessment does not include the identification and naming of minerals.]

To successfully meet the above standard, students must understand the Earth system, by understanding the four spheres that it is comprised of and how they interact. This activity allows students to engage, explore, explain their findings as it relates to a period in American History, known as the Dust Bowl.

This lesson includes elements from both social studies and ELA, as well as science. Students must analyze informational text and create a poster.

The lesson begins with each group learning about the Dust Bowl through a variety of media such including a case study and videos. It ends with students working as a team to create a poster.

The lesson includes hands-on, group work, and the use of technology to investigate the Dust Bowl’s impact on the Earth system.
