This three part lesson developed by 4H engages students in an interaction “globe” tossing activity, a measuring and analysis of water; and a discussion about conserving water.
This 5E lesson is the first of ten lessons that culminate with creating physical models of landforms. In this lesson, the students engage in technology as text and media and “jigsaw” their expertise about glaciers, rivers and oceans ...
The short 6-and-a-half-minute video provides background information for the teacher about the role of water on the planet, the extent of it across the globe (and how to visualize this extent) and what the planet would look like if it were removed.
The beautiful video offers landscapes covered with slow moving masses of ice (fields) called glaciers. The film would support questions about the phenomenon of glaciers.
This 4:23 video, Big Idea 5: Earth is the Water Planet, is created by the American Geoscience Institute (AGI) and helps the viewer to understand how water was formed on Earth and why water is so important to Earth. It also highlig ...
