  1. October 25, 2012 SEPUP: 6th Grade

  2. For each activity: • Does it align with Essential Standards? • Tips/suggestions

  3. Studying Soils Scientifically:1. Into the Field • Yes, needed to set stage for unit • Modified use of cards—did activity twice for EC and ESL

  4. 2. The Garden Problem • Yes • Use updated map on SEPUP website!

  5. 3. Observing Soil • Yes

  6. 4.Soil Columns • Yes • Difficult to dry soil—figure it out!

  7. 5. Soil Composition • Yes

  8. 6. Describing Soils Scientifically • Yes

  9. 7. Mapping Soils • Yes and also aligns with SS and Math • Kids love it • Takes long time to color…. • If time is short…skip

  10. 8. The Dust Bowl • Relationship to LA • May Skip but does align with stewardship • Students have trouble relating

  11. 9. Nutrients in Soil • Yes

  12. 10. Organic Matter Test • Yes • Careful with chemicals • When you pop top after organic it is difficult and dangerous • Careful removing • Clean tubes with tube brush and Awesome cleaner and use gloves • IT WILL STAIN!

  13. 11. Garden Action • Yes • Necessary for culmination!! The whole point of the study!!

  14. Rocks and Minerals: 12. Observing Natural Resources • Yes if doing most of unit to set stage

  15. 12. Diamond Dilemma • Process skills and voc and geometric solids for Math, but does not specifically align… • Process for scratch test • Model scratch tests and keep copper in a locked box!! • Student prep for using materials important

  16. 14. Analyzing Diamond Data • No, does not align

  17. 15. Mineral Properties • Yes

  18. 16. Mineral Identification • Not aligned

  19. 17. The Minerals in Rocks • Yes • HCL in hands of teacher only? • Go through major safety preparation

  20. 18. Every Rock Tells a Story • Yes

  21. 19. Rock Formation • Yes • Literacy Strategy

  22. 20. Identifying Rock Types • No

  23. 21. Modeling Rock Layers • Yes • Could skip and use Plate tectonics unit

  24. 22. The Rock Cycle Game • Yes • It is fun! • Models the cycle!

  25. 23. Making Minerals • ?? • Culminating activity

  26. Plate Tectonics: 36. Storing Waste • Yes • Refer to updates in teacher links of SEPUP websites • Use after reflection of article: advantages and disadvantage

  27. 37. Volcanic Landforms • Yes • Demo the volcano • When you dip stopper in Baking Soda just use a very THIN layer to “pop up” rather than foaming

  28. 38. Beneath the Earth’s Surface • Yes and aligned with ratios in math • Create a foldable to use with 38-39—layered fold

  29. 39. Earth Time • No

  30. 40. The Continent Puzzle • No, but could possibly align with SS • Introduction to plates?

  31. 41. Continental Drift • Yes, 2.1

  32. 42. The Theory of Plate Tectonics • Yes--video

  33. 43. Measuring Earthquakes • Yes • Over-engineered—Amy • Contact Teresa Costner for assistance not Carol or Megan • Used seismograph for energy unit to measure frequency! • Fresh markers—thin tipped • Best on long tables

  34. 44. Mapping Plates • Yes • Review plotting and estimation: Pair students carefully

  35. 45. Understanding Plate Boundaries • Yes • Literacy

  36. 46. Convection Currents • Yes • Must find warmed water

  37. 47. Spreading Plates • Yes • Computer simulation in lab on SEPUP website • May do in conjunction with #48

  38. 48. Other Types of Plate Motion • Yes • Another simulation

  39. 49. Comparing Site Risk • Yes • Culminating Activity • Good to show to parents… • Defending using evidence—Literacy Goal

  40. The Earth in Space: 71. Sunlight and Shadows • Intro—review • Do in conjunction 72 and 73 • Work in collaboration to go outside several times throughout the day to see shadows—must be sunny

  41. 72. Measuring Shadows, Measuring Time • Review

  42. 73. A Day of Earth • Big misconception!

  43. 74. As Earth Rotates • Yes • Literacy activity with anticipation guide, combine with 75

  44. 75. Sunlight and Seasons • Yes, aligns with graphing in math • Combine with 74

  45. 76. A Year Seen From Space • Yes • Simulation of Season on SEPUP site for Students

  46. 77. Explaining the Seasons • Yes • Must go outside • Careful with wires solar panels • May want to tape wires down with electrical tape • Flag motor with bright tape to see it spin

  47. 78. The Earth on the Move • Yes • Literacy

  48. 79. The Predictable Moon • Yes • Provide Moon sheet early— • Moonconnection.com

  49. 80. Explaining the Phases of the Moon • Yes • Need to pass our Moon sheet earlier in unit

  50. 81. Moon Phase Simulator • Yes • Find on SEPUP website
