Soil (Weathering and Decomposition)

February 3, 2015


3(7) Earth and space. The student knows that Earth consists of natural resources and its surface is constantly changing. The student is expected to:
(A) explore and record how soils are formed by weathering of rock and the decomposition of plant and animal remains;
Rocks and Soil was always one of a student favorite unit of study, in all grade levels.
The hands on, investigation approach is the most effective way to help the students meet with success on this particular TEK. They need to be given the opportunity to explore and record. I was fortunate to have a park located in front of my school, and this is where we did our investigations. However, I also used the school property as an investigation lab.
The Thinglink includes tutorials, songs, videos, Power Points, and vocabulary Quizlets. This Thinglink can be used as an engagement piece, an explanation piece, a reteach, or review. Students can use this as a station.
