This packet includes assessments, activities, labs/demonstrations for types of weathering, as well as a great STEM/STEAM Project! (PBL Style)
This is included in my Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition Unit Bundle
♦ Individual Assessments
("daily grades") in two styles, including an extended response one! Keys included for both.
♦ Matching/Sorting Activity
Students look at event cards that describe something happening in nature, they must sort/match as they identify each event as weathering, erosion, or deposition! (These print in color or b&w, I have just line art versions too to help save on ink!)
♦ Sequence Comics Activity
that can be used to show changes over time due to weathering, erosion, and deposition. Scenario strips are included so you can assign your students specific events, or let them create their own!
♦ STEM/STEAM Erosion Project
that has students solving a real-life problem of beach front erosion. Students will be keeping records as they go from the brainstorming stage, into making proposals, testing the proposals, and presenting a final proposal to the "public." Students will keep a record of what is going on in each step, as well as have a reflection to fill out. I have provided extensive notes for you as well as many ways you can change this project to suit your needs! Different rubrics are provided to help you grade as you need to, as well as judge score cards in case you have other classes or adults come in to evaluate their projects (doesn't have to be included in final grade). Pretend money, price tags for materials, and even "star engineer" awards are provided so you can use the project as you need to! It does "check off" everything on the PBL checklist if your school follows that model!
♦ Weathering Labs/Demonstrations
whether you use these as demos or have students participate in centers or groups, these labs demonstrate physical and chemical weathering. There are three separate labs/demos included and all have notes/pictures to assist you. Each has its own lab sheet, and I have provided a generic lab sheet in case you need to change anything or have your own idea!
Please note that this goes along with the other items in this bundle AND is included in this bundle: **Coming Soon**
