Concepts Addressed:

•Sphere interaction





•Water distribution on Earth

•Saltwater and Freshwater


•Water scarcity

•Water cycle

•Clean water

These bell ringers cover two standards:

 5-ESS2-2. Describe and graph the amounts of salt water and fresh water in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth.

5-ESS2-1. Develop a model using an example to describe a scientific principle.

ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact. 

Utah SEEd 5.1.2

Use mathematics and computational thinking to compare the quantity of saltwater and freshwater in various reservoirs to provide evidence for the distribution of water on Earth. Emphasize reservoirs such as oceans, lakes, rivers, glaciers, groundwater, and polar ice caps. Examples of using mathematics and computational thinking could include measuring, estimating, graphing, or finding percentages of quantities. (ESS2.C)

Utah SEEd 5.1.4
Develop a model to describe interactions between Earth’s systems including the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere. Emphasize interactions between only two systems at a time. Examples could include the influence of a rainstorm in a desert, waves on a shoreline, or mountains on clouds. (ESS2.A)

These bell ringers are no prep!  Just print and use or use the link for the Google Form™.

Would you like a few minutes at the start of the science lesson to review the material and have the students work on something quietly while you set up for a class?
