Science Unit 1: The Earth is Changing

Big Idea/Essential Questions:

  1. How is the world changing?
  2. Why do we care that the world is changing?
  3. How can we reduce the impacts of natural processes/changes on humans?

Intended Learning Outcomes:

  • I can analyze and identify changes in a landscape using evidence.
  • I can explore erosion by water, ice, wind and vegetation, making observations, gathering data and making inferences about patterns of erosion.
  • I can analyze and interpret data from physical and topographic maps describing patterns of Earth’s features.
  • I can identify how the earth’s landscape is changing.
  • I can develop solutions to reduce the impact of natural Earth processes on humans.
