Wrap up case study and plan for first investigation
Warm up: What are two factors that can cause a dust bowl?
Activity: Continue to describe the causes of erosion for each case study during class presentations. Turn in Case Study notes for 21 Century Grade.
Activity: Read LS3.3 investigate factors affecting erosion and plan for experiments
Homework: Finish reading LS3.3 & prepare for experiments pgs 67 -70. No Write up.
Double Check Powerschool for any missing assignments (Weekly WU's & HW questions) Make sure to title each missing assignment with the missing week and list each day of the week before uploading your document to my dropbox)
Warm up: What is a variable? What are the variables we are intentionally changing in our investigations today? LS3.3
Plan experiment outside... Review lab expectations
Activity: Conduct experiments as planned . Complete Lab Worksheet for investigation.
Homework: Read pgs 70 - 75 LS3.3 investigate factors affecting erosion.
Answer Reflection Questions page 75
Warm Up today we will do together as class notes: What are the three different types of variables we worked with in our investigation (pg 73 Define Each)? Identify what each type was in your investigation from Tuesday. (Type these warm up notes for Thursday's warm up question, upload these to dropbox at the end of the week)
Activity: Group Discussion on our 1st investigation on Erosion. Prepare for the Investigation Expo. What else can we do next time we do in the next investigation.
Homework: Identify trends you observed in your data on Tuesday and state a claim based on those trends.
Warm Up: You want to compare how granite is eroded by a river to how sandstone is eroded by a river. To test this you build a model of a river ﬂowing over granite and sandstone. What are the (independent) manipulated and (dependent) responding variables? What are some of the variables you will control?
InClass Activity: Give students time to share Investigation Expo Posters. View Slide Presentation on Weathering vs erosion - students will take notes on these slides .
If time permits: Watch video on basketball court solution example and discuss how we will set up and design our solution. youtube video . What are some ways to prevent erosion that were shown in the youtube video?
Homework: Only if we had time to watch the youtube video in class...(If not, just spend time tonight preparing document for dropbox- No Friday HW) Otherwise, Research new ideas to help prevent erosion for the BB court. Write two of your ideas that may prevent erosion for BB Court, upload to dropbox for Friday's Homework. Be prepared to share with class on Monday. If possible, bring supplies, soil, gravel, plant material, bark, etc.
