Weather & Temperature

Earth Science » Unit: Meteorology
Earth Science » Unit: Meteorology
Kane Koller
New York, NY
Environment: Urban
 
Big Idea:

This is a busy lesson! In this introductory lesson, students identify thermometers as the instruments used to measure temperatures, examine kinetic energy as a function of molecular movement, and then examine the differences between weather and climate

Topographic Maps II (Stream Movement & Gradient)

Earth Science » Unit: Landscapes & Mapping
Earth Science » Unit: Landscapes & Mapping
Kane Koller
New York, NY
Environment: Urban
 
Big Idea:

In this lesson, students cover two things. First, we explore how to mathematically calculate the gradient for topographic profiles before moving on to figuring out the direction of stream movement. Two important concepts covered in one lesson!

Unit Assessment

Earth Science » Unit: Landscapes & Mapping
Earth Science » Unit: Landscapes & Mapping
Kane Koller
New York, NY
Environment: Urban
 
Big Idea:

In this lesson, I give an overview on how I plan for, implement, and analyze assessment data from my class. We start with assessment creation - how do you (or where do you) come up with questions, and how do you organize them to make a cohesive assessment?

Topographic Maps Lab

Earth Science » Unit: Landscapes & Mapping
Earth Science » Unit: Landscapes & Mapping
Kane Koller
New York, NY
Environment: Urban
 
Big Idea:

Two-dimensional maps can be created, which accurately portray the three-dimensional relief of a specific location, which we term topographic maps

Water Cycle & Salinity

Earth Science » Unit: Landscapes & Mapping
Earth Science » Unit: Landscapes & Mapping
Kane Koller
New York, NY
Environment: Urban
 
Big Idea:

In this introductory lesson to Unit VII, students explore the relationship between salinity and latitude before jumping into a brief synopsis of the water cycle. They then use "scenario cards" to apply the steps of the water cycle to some real-world scenar
