Transformation of the World Presented by Mr. Edward Rodriguez, Ms. Rachel Schenk, Ms. Jacqueline Samayoa, Mrs. Elyssa Lazo
Introduction The MST Inquiry Unit will develop a strong foundation on Earth’s Changing Surface. Students will acquire knowledge on the Rock Cycle, Erosion, Earthquakes, as well as Volcanoes. These hands on experiences will allow students to have a comprehension of the unique parts of the Earth.
Rock Cycle: Rock N’ Roll Bloom’s Taxonomy: Knowledge Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence: Visual and Verbal/Linguistic Technology: Web Filamentality
Rock N’ Roll What is a rock? How does the rock cycle change the earth’s surface? What are the factors of the rock cycle? http://www.kn.att.com/wired/fil /pages/listchangingea.html
Classification of Rocks: Oh, Where Does My Rock Belong? Bloom’s Taxonomy: Comprehension Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence: Naturalist and Logical-Mathematical Pet Manipulative: Grouping of Rocks
Oh, Where Does My Rock Belong? What are the different types of rocks? How do we classify these rocks? Where can we find these different types of rocks?
Erosion: What types do we have? Bloom’s Taxonomy: Application Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence: Verbal/Linguistic, Logical/Mathematical Experiment on Types of Erosion K W L A rock is … The rock cycle changes the earth ’ s surface. The factors of the rock cycle What is erosion? How many types of erosions do exist? Erosion is the process by which the surface of the Earth gets worn down. Five types of erosion exist. Different types of rocks Classification of rocks Area in which we find these different types of rocks What kind of erosions can we experience? What does erosion affect in the environment? Wind, water, and chemical erosions. Air quality, plant growth and water quality.
Experiment: Types of Erosion How many types of erosions do you think exist? What do you think erosion processes have negative effects on? What types of erosion did we experience?
Erosion: What happened here? Bloom’s Taxonomy: Analysis Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence: Verbal/Linguistic, Intrapersonal Scavenger Hunt: Erosion in Nature
What is erosion? ErosionErosion Name types of erosion. Wind erosion Wind erosion What does wind erosion physically remove from fields?wind erosion What is acid rain?acid rain
Earthquakes: Shake, Rattle, N’ Roll Bloom’s Taxonomy: Synthesis Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence: Musical/Rhythmic, Bodily/Kinesthetic, Visual/Spatial Hands-on Experiment AIMS Education Foundation 1994 Overhead and Underfoot – “Peanut Butter and Jelly Geology”
Shake, Rattle, N’ Roll What are earthquakes? What are the different faults? Do you think earthquakes are important? Explain why. http://geology.com/earthquake/l anders-earthquake-sound.wav
Volcanoes: Oh My! Bloom’s Taxonomy: Evaluation Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence: Verbal/Linguistic, Interpersonal and Visual/Spatial Technology: Web Filamentality Pet Manipulative: Hands-on Volcanoes Experiment
Volcanoes: Oh My! What are volcanoes? What are the different types of volcanoes? Do you think that we can prevent volcanoes from creating and erupting? http://video.google.com/videoplay?doci d=4469061453115836229&ei=NloLSoe YBpKwrgLFgd2hBQ&q=Volcanoes+sit e%3Agoogle.com&hl=en&dis_ft=asf%2 Cavi%2Cflv%2Cm4v%2Cwmv%2C http://dsc.discovery.com/convergen ce/pompeii/interactive/interactive.ht ml
