Hydrosphere: Water Distribution on Earth

5th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Earth Systems

Big Idea:In this lesson, students explore the distribution of water on Earth by completing an investigation. Then students construct a circle graph to further analyze the Earth's water.

Overview of Earth's Systems

5th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Earth's Systems

Big Idea:Students work in groups to research one of the Earth's systems and then become the experts in that area to teach their peers.

The Distribution of Water on Earth

5th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Water On Earth

Big Idea:Students will create a model and graph to illustrate the distribution of water on Earth.

Hydrosphere: Water on Earth

5th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Earth's Systems

Big Idea:Students will research how much water is available on Earth in various reservoirs and graph the quantities.

Unit Review Game and Assessment

5th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Earth's Systems

Big Idea:Students play a review game, then complete the assessment to demonstrate mastery on the two 5-ESS2 standards.

Plaid Pete's At Home in the Hydrosphere!

5th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Plaid Pete is Modeling Earth's Systems

Big Idea:How is water distributed on Earth? How do waves interact with the geosphere? Students construct a pie chart and investigate wave action.

Water Use Thinking About Liters

3rd Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Water

Big Idea:Liters are easier to understand when they are put into the ordinary setting of everyday uses!

Hydrosphere: Why are Oceans Salty?

5th Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Earth Systems

Big Idea:In this lesson, students explore why there is salt and fresh water on Earth through class demonstrations and research. Then, students graph and describe the distribution of fresh water resources on Earth.

5-ESS2-1

Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.

5-ESS2-2

Describe and graph the amounts and percentages of water and fresh water in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth.
