Description

Students will learn about the Earth’s spheres and sphere interaction by developing a model to show the 4 Earth spheres: geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere interacting. From the Earth’s Systems DCI, This resource is aligned with 5th-grade NGSS 5-ESS2-1. Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact. This resource is also aligned with CCSS for 5th grade Reading Informational Text and Writing. This resource includes the use of phenomena. Parts of this can be used as a Distance Learning Packet.

This unit explores the Earth’s four spheres ( geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere) and how they interact exchanging energy and matter. The resource includes an informative slideshow, 3 pages of nonfiction text, response pages with text-dependent questions, interactive notebook flaps, a hands-on lab activity with follow-up pages, graphic organizers, diagrams, and more. This resource also includes an assessment in the format of end of year testing.

Informational text reading passages with comprehension questions are included.

Students will learn about the interaction of the four spheres while thinking critically about the topic of sphere interaction.

Answer keys are included!

This resource also aligns with Utah SEEd 5.1.3

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.
