Earth Science

S3E1. Students will investigate the physical attributes of rocks and soils.

  • a. Explain the difference between a rock and a mineral.
  • b. Recognize the physical attributes of rocks and minerals using observation (shape,

color, texture), measurement, and simple tests (hardness).

  • c. Use observation to compare the similarities and differences of texture, particle size,

and color in top soils (such as clay, loam or potting soil, and sand).

  • d. Determine how water and wind can change rocks and soil over time using observation

and research.

wait but i have a question how does metamorphic rock form again
Wait...but I have a question…how does metamorphic rock form again?

Step One:

HEAT

Step Two:

PRESSURE

EXTREME

CONDITIONS!

METAMORPHIC ROCK

slide7

Is Ms. Snelson sure that’s really a rock?

It looks like chocolate!

Shoot Max! You caught

me!

now let s investigate different rocks and minerals in georgia
Now let’s investigate different rocks and minerals in Georgia!

Rock observation sheet

Mineral observation sheet

Can you tell that these rocks are underwater?

now that we know all about rocks what about the soil in which they live
Now that we know all about rocks, what about the soil in which they live?

What questions do we have about soil?

Soil KWL

what in the world makes up soil you ask
“What in the world makes up soil?”, you ask!

Can you figure out what this type of graph is called?

slide12

That’s right! You are an expert! Now, here is the same information - only displayed on a different type of graph. Can you guess what this type of graph is called?

right again but what in the world is humus
RIGHT AGAIN! But…what in the world is HUMUS?

Can you guess?

slide14

Now we will look at

the different types of soil in Georgia. What do you think are the physical attributes we should be looking for?

let s experiment
Let’s experiment!
  • Particle size or texture …we’ll use a magnifier.

2. Composition …we’ll smear it on paper and see how it looks.

3. Color …we’ll observe and record.

4. Ability to support life …do we see any evidence to support this?

5. Capacity for absorbing water …we’ll experiment with a funnel!

slide17

Let’s explore! Together with your group, observe and record what you see as you experiment at each soil station. Don’t forget to write down what you see on your sheet before you leave each station! 

Soil investigation worksheet

slide18
Now let’s listen to a brainpop video to see how much we’ve learned! Don’t forget to listen very closely…we will take a quiz at the end! 

slide19
NEXT UP…we will learn all about FOSSILS! Did you know that Georgia’s state fossil is the shark tooth? I wish I could chat about that…but I’ve got to go catch dinner! Hee hee hee
