The surface of the earth is always changing. The changes can be sudden or so slow that they are barely visible. Believe it or not, what you see today could be totally different tomorrow! What kinds of events can cause these changes? Which ones cause quick changes? Which ones cause slow changes? Are any of the causes man-made? Can any of them be prevented? 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Image Source: World Book Kids Online Watch the video below. What kinds of changes to the earth’s surface do you think occurred from this volcano? Were they sudden changes or slow?

Print out this table.table Using the information you found from the resources on Slide 2, complete the table. You will list the causes of surface changes on earth and whether they are fast or slow changes. As an option-you may use Pixie. 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Image Source: Licensed by Microsoft Office
Think about our Essential Question: How does the earth’s surface change over time? 1. Choose an example of a quick and a slow change of the earth’s surface. 2. Create a picture showing the earth’s surface before and after each change. 3. Write a brief description of the type of cause and the changes that occurred. You can use Microsoft Word, Pixie or paper and pencil! Use this checklist to make sure your work is complete.checklist 1111 2222 3333 6666 5555 4444 Next Image Source: Discovery Education

Grade 2 Science BCPS CurriculumBCPS Curriculum / Maryland State Curriculum / Next Generation Science StandardsMaryland State CurriculumNext Generation Science Standards Students who demonstrate understanding can: 2-ESS1-1 Use information from several sources to provide evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly. Common Core State Standards Standard 2.0 Earth/Space Science Students will use scientific skills and processes to explain the chemical and physical interactions (i.e., natural forces and cycles, transfer of energy) of the environment, Earth, and the universe that occur over time. Standards for the 21 st Century Learner Standards for the 21 st Century Learner 1.1.6 Read, view, and listen for information presented in any format (e.g. textual, visual, media, digital) in order to make inferences and gather meaning. 2.1.3 Use strategies to draw conclusions from information and apply knowledge to curricular areas, real- world situations, and further investigations. ISTE NETS - National Educational Technology Standards for Students 3. Research and Information Fluency: Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information. b. Locate, organize, analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and ethically use information from a variety of sources and media. 4. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making: Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources. c. Collect and analyze data to identify solutions and/or make informed decisions. Time Frame: Differentiation strategies for this lesson: Direct students to use learning tools included in our BCPS- licensed databases, such as: audio read-aloud, labeled reading levels/Lexiles, and embedded dictionaries. Have students work in partners Learning Styles addressed in this lesson: Visual, auditory, kinesthetic, reflective, Field Independent Notes to the teacher: Collaborate with your school library media specialist to implement this lesson. You may need additional log in information to access some of the resources. This Slam Dunk could be spread over 2 class periods. One to gather information and one to complete the assessment activity.
