Subject Area(s):Science, Technology                 Grade Level(s)/Course: 5

Stated Objective                    Students will show how constructive and/or destructive forces
create landforms on the earth’s surface.

Anticipatory Set (Focus)            Show a digital presentation of various forces at work-volcanoes
erupting, waves crashing on a cliff/shoreline; earthquake. The
clips will be taken from Harcourt Science VCR tapes and Internet
sites and put into a Microsoft Movie Maker video.
Explanation                         Give the students definitions of constructive (a force that builds
up the Earth’s surface) and destructive (a force that wears or
breaks down the Earth’s surface) forces. Through these
processes landforms are created such as sand dunes, canyons,
mountains, valleys, and volcanoes.
Modeling                            Show digital presentation from Focus and have the students tell
(Include Check for understanding)   which force is creating it-constructive or destructive.
Guided Practice                     Students will rotate through various stations-earthquake, glacier,
(Include Check for understanding)   waves, and plate movement stations. At the earthquake station
they will use blocks to represent buildings on a cookie sheet.
They will try to position the blocks in a variety of ways to prevent
them from falling down. At the glacier station they will use ice
cubes to represent glaciers. They will move clean ice cube over
sand paper and ice cube mixed with dirt over sand paper to see
which one leaves more marks. They then will do the same on a
tray of dirt to see what they create. Wave station they will build a
beach in a paint tray. They will gently move the tray back and
forth to simulate waves. They will describe how the water
interacts with the shoreline. At the Plate movement station the
students will use graham crackers and icing to demonstrate
convergent, divergent, and transforming plates. They will identify
which creates mountains, volcanoes, valleys/ocean floors and
earthquakes. The students will identify at each station where
constructive and destructive forces are happening.
Opportunities to Relearn (Re-       http://www.promotega.org/AAU06007/Forces.htm Students will
teach)                              go to the website and read/take notes over the forces that they
are having trouble with. Once they have read the information, the
students will take the on-line quiz (Verdict).
Independent Practice                Working in groups of 3-4, students design an experiment/model
of how a landform is created. Once they have their design,
students will use digital camcorders to take a video while they are
creating their landform. They then will turn the video into a movie
in Moviemaker. The students will also create a script explaining
how their landform is being form.
Assessment or Evaluation            Teacher will watch videos and grade according to rubric
(Ideally should have a              provided.
technology produced product.)
Enrichment                         Using students models as examples have the other students list
what force (constructive, destructive, both) and process
(weathering erosion, deposition, wind, running water, glacier
movement, etc) help to make each of the different models.

Closure                            Students will take a test over Constructive and Destructive
forces.
