Inquiries Into The Dynamic Earth: Beware of Change! Dee Goldston Elizabeth Allison University of Alabama MSP Tuskegee University, AL 1/31/13
5E Inquiry Instructional Model Engage: Get at prior knowledge/motivate Explore: Hands on-Minds on Activity Explain: Questioning to ascertain understanding Introduce labels, clarify concepts Elaborate: Apply new knowledge/new situation Evaluate: Ascertain students’ understandings of target concepts and processes Let’s Begin Engage Explore ExplainElaborate Evaluate
Engage: Getting at Prior Knowledge Appendix A So What Is A Rock? Directions: Look at the pictures. If you think it is a rock, circle YES. If you think it is not a rock, circle NO. DiamondYESNO A BoulderYESNO Gold YES NO Ice YES NO Seashell YES NO Aluminum YES NO Piece of Sand YES NO Granite YES NO Coal YES NO Coral YES NO Concrete YESNO
Explore: (Hands-on, Minds-on) Part 1: Rock Sort Part 2: Rock Clues Color strips Use activity sheet to identify rocks
Explain Part 1 & 2 Rock Clues Orange: Pumice 2, Granite 4, Obsidian 3 Red: Slate 9, Gneiss 1, Marble 7 Blue: Shale 5, Conglomerate 6, Limestone 10 Pick out the rock you think will float. What observations do you have to support your choice? Try it!
Explore Part 3: Now, let’s take a closer looker at Sedimentary Rock. What are they made of? Pass out rock. Rub it. Look at it with a magnifying glass. Would it be hard or easy to break down the rock? Write 3 true statements about what you see Draw it? What would you call this rock if you could name it? What do we call particles such as these? One type of rock is sedimentary. Looking at it… what clues can we observe that may help us know how and where it forms??? Let’s explore MAKE--Sediment Jar: Water, sand, soil, &pebbles
Explore and Explain: Sedimentary Rock Simulation Using the aluminum foil (make a rectangle boat or bowl ) 1. Place sediment (crayon shavings) in the foil boat and fold over sides Go in the hallway fold it over so nothing spills and stand on it!!! What do you think it will look like after standing on it? Now look…. How would describe it? What changes occurred ? Draw it SEDIMENTARY ROCKS are unique from other rocks, do you know what they have others do not? See Center
Rocks Recycle So if rocks can recycle or cycle: 2. How do we get sedimentary rocks to recycle into Igneous rocks? What do you think it will look like? How would you describe it? What changes occurred? Draw it 3. So how do we change an igneous rock to recycle into a metamorphic rock? What do you think it will look like? How would you describe it? What changes occurred? Draw it 4. Comparison: Look at gneiss-granite; shale-slate SO WHAT IS A ROCK? RETURN TO ENGAGE CHART
Elaborate: Option 1 Center: lava (pahoe pahoe; ah ah ) photos and actual lava types related to igneous rocks Center: Fossils in sedimentary rocks Center: Books titles: If You Find a Rock (Lember and Christian) Rocks: Hard, Soft, Smooth and Rough( Rasinsky) Erosion Perfect Learning ( Editor: Bates)
Elaborate: Option 2 Ride the Rock Cycle Google “Ride the Rock Cycle” (It is a pdf file)
Elaborate: Into a Rock Microscopy Dr. Rangari
