Access online and blended learning opportunities for registered program participants
WeTeachNYC Classes & Communities provide NYC teachers and school leaders with an online space where they can engage in online classes and blended learning communities with their colleagues.
Currently, access to communities is limited to participants in specific NYCDOE programs.
For nearly five billion years, the Earth’s surface has been constantly built up and broken down by processes taking place beneath and above the Earth’s surface, resulting in the wide range of beautiful and complex landscapes we see today. In this unit, students will continue to make connections between the Earth’s systems when they study interactions between the lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere by investigating the rock cycle, water cycle, and processes of erosion such as wind, wave action, and mass movement.
This unit includes a performance task, Regents-aligned questions, and is organized into inquiry-based 5E model plans. It is part of the New Visions Earth Science Curriculum.
Scope and sequence connection: Earth Science: Geology: Surface processes.
Mountains are gradually broken down by water and wind in the processes of weathering and erosion. In real life this continues for thousands or millions of years. In these activities you will simulate some of the processes over a much shorter time period in the laboratory. Shared by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
A sixteen-page comic book about the Earth's magnetic field. Travel down through the interior of the earth then back up into the ionosphere to learn how the magnetic field works. Created by the United States Geologic Survey.
Scope and Sequence connection: 8:2 Forces and Motion on Earth; 8:3 The Sun, Earth and Moon System and Earth Science: Geology: Surface processes.
Performance standard: 1.1a, 1.1f.
This reviewed collection of NASA Earth and space science resources is for educators of all levels: K-12, higher education and informal science education. This list has been filtered for lesson plans for high school students on the topic of earth's structure and surface processes. (Teachers can use more or different filters on the left side menu to increase or decrease results.)
