Students will learn about the water cycle, or hydrosphere, of our Earth and how it impacts the Earth's weather and land features. In this class, students will learn what the water cycle is, how it impacts weather, and how weather impacts the ocean, along with how tides and wind work. Students will cover the following topics each week: Week 1- Water Cycle (what are the steps of the water cycle? what does each step do?) Week 2- Weather and the water cycle (how do we get rain from the water...
Students will learn about the hydrosphere and the impact on the Earth's weather and land features. This will be accomplished using one live class per week that is teacher lead with questioning and note takers to record information (graphs will be included and answer keys are available upon request), independent reading activities, quizzes, and digital Break Out Rooms.
I taught 5th grade for two years, and have taught middle school science for 8 years from 6-8th grade. I am licensed as a science teacher from 6-12 grade, with a Masters in Science Education, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. I like making learning relate to real world experiences so students can connect to material easier than standard memorization. I review in a flow pattern that starts with basic information and expands into complex information to assist students with retention, and like to bring real world conversations in with students connecting their experiences when possible.
Students have the option to complete independent reading activities to enhance informational text comprehension, complete quizzes for reflection, and complete a digitalbreakout.edu game that will reflect on mastery of the lesson.
Diagrams and note takers for students to use during presentations. Students will fill in as we progress through lessons.
Completion of activities, quizziz, breakout.edu games all serve as assessment. A final quiz will be made available at the end of the course to determine mastery with grades available immediately.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please be aware that since hurricanes will be discussed, major storms may be brought up that could be of sensitive nature. Details will not be discussed other than storm names, strengths of storms and general damage, and what happens to cause a name to be retired.
Videos from youtube (filtered through viewpure) may be used to enhance a lesson when applicable. Students will also use breakout.edu and quizziz.com to complete through the week (links will be provided weekly). Note takers,quizzes, reading comprehension passages and questions, and graphs will come from the teacher directly.
