Adams 14 Standards-Based Lesson Plan Teacher: Babcock Grade: 7 Date: Unit 3 Quarter: Week: What are we learning? (Content Objective):_Today I will compare my drawings, then make predictions of how folding, breaking and uplifting changes rock layer sequence. How are we going to learn it? (Language Objective) : I will discuss my drawings with a partner and write about how these processes change rock layer sequence in a t-chart. Why are we learning what we are learning?: I am learning to use history to make predictions about the future. 1. 2. Formative Assessments of Student Mastery/ Products: Grade Level Essential Targets Indicate the components you are assessing today.

Students made a “geology sandwich” in the previous lesson to simulate how rock layer sequences are deposited. In this lesson, they will fold, bend and break their sandwiches to model how these processes change rock layer sequence. Will need wide straws for “core samples” Homework: 5. Think back to our last unit, Forces Inside Earth. What forces are responsible for folding and uplifiting? Student Learning Opportunities: Adams 14 Standards-Based Lesson Plan 6.

Discuss drawings with partner. Opportunity to discuss with a Give me one minute: each student takes one minute with partner drawings and partner to discuss the following question “Based on what we did predictions today with our Geology Sandwich, what can we predict about how folding, breaking and uplifting affects the sequence of rock layers? OUT: Students will make general predictions about the results of folding, breaking and uplifting in a graphic organizer. See formative assessment section Reteach/Extension Ideas Lesson Reflection Adams 14 Standards-Based Lesson Plan 8. Go “backwards”. Show photos of classic 9. This was the first time I have taught this set of examples of uplift, etc and have students identify lessons. When I planned it, I broke it up in to 2 parts: what could have caused the change in rock layer the creation of the layers and the changes to the sequence. layers. However, both parts can be done in a 60 minute class period. As I was teaching part I (the previous lesson), I noticed I had time to do part II (this lesson). It worked great! The students were engaged and able to articulate their learning in the OUT section of their notebook. If I had left it as two parts, I would have lost their interest.
