Lesson Plan 1
Description of Classroo!
grade, 9-11 year olds, 12 boys, 13 girls
45-50 minute supplemental lesson on how global patterns can influence changes to Earths surface!
"iddle lesson on Earth #omposition and $tructure %nit! $tudents ha&e bac'ground information on
other forms of water, wind, and ice that change the Earth(s surface!
Content O'(ecti)e*s+!
$tudents will be able to discuss glaciers and how they land, do an acti&ity that illustrates how glaciers
change the land, and ma'e a class list of what causes changes to our planets structure!
Lan$%a$e O'(ecti)e*s+!
$tudents will discuss their ideas on what a glacier is! )hey will write their definitions down and
record*reflect on their obser&ations of the e+periment! $tudents will discuss and listen to their
classmates obser&ations and conclusions from the e+periment!
Ne)a&a Stan&ar&s!
E!5!#!2, $tudents 'now water, wind, and ice constantly change the Earths land surface by eroding
roc' and soil in some places and depositing them in other areas! E*$
E!5!#!3,$tudents 'now landforms may result from slow processes -e!g! erosion and deposition. and
fast processes -e!g! &olcanoes, earth/ua'es, landslides, flood, and human acti&ity.! E*$
0!5!1!2, $tudents 'now scientific progress is made by conducting careful in&estigations, recording
data, and communicating the results in an accurate method! E*$
0!5!1!3, $tudents 'now how to draw conclusions from scientific e&idence! E*$
0!5!1!5, $tudents 'now how to plan and conduct a safe and simple in&estigation! E*$
0!5!1!2!, $tudents 'now models are tools for learning about the things they are meant to resemble! 3*$
