Are you looking for experiments that are fairly easy and quick but that teach Weathering and Erosion? This packet has two. One covers Erosion by Abrasion and the other covers Erosion by Water. This is the first SIOP lesson plan I have posted on here. It was written for the CORE Science Curriculum for 5th grade - the section that covers weathering. There are two experiments that tie science and language arts writing together. This includes, not only the lesson plans but the worksheets. It is written in SIOP form with suggestions for extensions and modifications. I am also posting a PowerPoint that I used during this same unit. Please feel free to give me feedback. This will help me to know if sharing this type of thing is valuable to others. My name is Melanie Whitesides. My students are primarily Navajo and 99% ELL. I feel the best way to teach a concept is to give students hands-on experience.
