Source s : I did this assignment. Additional activities would need to be done to fully meet the performance expectation. They are from all different areas of science: Biology, Physics, Genetics, Earth Science, Physical Science, and Chemistry. The science and engineering practice, analyzing and interpreting data does fully incorporate quantitative analysis, correlation and causation. After this simulation have the students complete a lesson related what they have learned about the ages of the rocks and fossils, but adding in plate motions. Okay now the questions you'll have to figure them out and don't copy my exact words.
There are two text entry boxes that you complete when you ask a question. LuLu was rewarded with a jelly donut by Jo Ann. There LuLu waited for cars. In addition to the simulation activity, to meet this part of the performance expectation I would have the students complete a kinesthetic lesson related what they have learned about the ages of the rocks and fossils, but adding in plate motions. She had had a heart attack. So Jo Ann … took in the pig, named LuLu, as her own. The simulation has instructions on the left side of the screen with a bar that can be scrolled forward as you proceed.
Please feel free to try these at home! She looked at Jo Ann and started to cry, Jo Ann reports. The additional step- by- step procedures on the worksheet will help students navigate the simulation. And onthe side of the paper it will show the … type of site. Well for this assignment you have to make a table with 11 rows and 3 columns and label it with distance time and rate. Cellular Reproduction - view virtual. When a car came by, she lay down in the street with her legs up in the air. How can you simulate the radioactive half-life of an element? Doctors say that if only 15 more minutes had passed, she likely would have died.
Jo Ann got to the hospital in time and had heart surgery. I have assigned grades to some that I've explored in detail. Students will be directed to specific labs in class but there are over 100 labs offered here! The worksheet provides the background, procedure and data tables from each dig site organized in a way that the data can be easily transferred and analyzed. Faith's people kept calling the sound guy offering higher and higher prices for the Jeep but he didn't want to sell it, because … he rebuilt it from nothing, but in 2004 he finally accepted their offer, and Faith gave Tim the Jeep as a birthday gift that year. This resource is explicitly designed to build towards this crosscutting concept. Another numerical relationship is having the students use a method called radiometric dating to calculate the absolute age of the rock. The icons are interactive at the bottom of the page: a nail with a tag and a magnifying glass, the computer, a chisel and a specimen collection box.
Link can be found in related links. However, it does require the use of FlashPlayer which is not available on some platforms. The dig site number is displayed at the top so students can keep track of which site they are using. This activity does not address any continental shapes, seafloor structures or plate motions. Virtual Labs Created by Glencoe - The Biology Corner A collection of virtual labs created by glencoe. Students will create a model and explain it to their peers with their moveable continental plates.
Comments about Including the Science and Engineering Practice Using the data collected from each virtual dig site, students will analyze and predict ages of rock layers and come to their own conclusions about the Law of Superposition. The crosscutting concept of patterns is a theme across all of the dimensions in this activity. She was not unconscious, though, and was able to yell for help. The paramedics shooed her away gently. Professor Paddy O'Brien Question 7: How do students advance to the next year? As a suggestion for an assessment the questions or some of the questions at the end of the worksheet could be used as a final assessment.
Only the age of the rock layers and the Law of Superposition are addressed in this activity. The data shows a numerical relationship to the age of the rocks. The driver telephoned for help. Then the questions they give you such as materials and purpose just type in what they ask you to such as my purpose to do this assignment was to figure out what rate of speed I'm go … ing through in a stretch of 25 feet. Many of these can be used as simple class demonstrations, whereas others are more useful for having students explore and change variables. Grades are based on interactivity, useability, and overall value of the exploration.
Comments about Including the Disciplinary Core Idea The disciplinary core idea is illustrated by a simulation of a fossil dig and the fossils found in each site correlated to an age of the substrate this activity is clearly an investigation of rocks and fossils. Reviews This activity consists of 2 parts created by different entities. Many of these allow students to manipulate variables and conduct tests that might be too dangerous or expensive to perform in class. This resource appears to be designed to build towards this performance expectation, though the resource developer has not explicitly stated so. Another option could be that the students could write a concluding essay from the point of view of a geologist at an actual dig, what might they encounter, what data will they find to support the claim they have chosen.
Assessment Boundary: Paleomagnetic anomalies in oceanic and continental crust are not assessed. Question 2: How are Headboys and Headgirls chosen? Only the distribution of fossils and rocks, the age of rock layers and the Law of Superposition are addressed in this activity. This resource appears to be designed to build towards this disciplinary core idea, though the resource developer has not explicitly stated so. A suggestion for differentiation would be for the students to work in groups and the data gathered from the activity, but analyzed in the class as a whole group. One morning Jo Ann collapsed onto the floor. In this activity students are given a map with a view of the Earth as a whole including the seafloor structures.
The first person who drove by was afraid to get out of the car. Caution: the journal and data entry sections of the simulations do not work, so you probably will want to arrange for students to write these on their own pages. After you hit the question mark it will spit out the answer, which should be spookily accurate. She trotted out to the street. The door was a little too small for LuLu, and she cut her belly on the way out. Earn 2 or more Quills by the end of the year Question 8: How are Prefects selected? To his surprise, LuLu got up and led the man to the house to Jo Ann. The worksheet has labeled data tables used to organize and interpret the findings of the dig site simulation.
