ESS.3.3 Atmospheric Circulation
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This is a high school student science experience tied to SEEd standard ESS.3.3. In this experience students build a conceptual model for why wind moves as it does around Earth.
These experiences were designed to support students in engaging in science investigations with siblings and/or parents at home and then report back about what was discovered. They were created in a way that is easily adaptable for both online and printed formats. They are formatted to help students wonder about and investigate the science phenomena happening in the world around them. These experiences do not describe how students should write up and return work to their teacher. It is up to each teacher to adapt them to best meet student needs. When individualized by the teacher, a student could be asked to engage in one or more of these experiences a week and report back. This format aligns closely to the vision and expectation of the SEEd standards.

Rating

Evaluate design solutions for a major global or local environmental problem based on one of EarthÕs systems. Define the problem, identify criteria and constraints, analyze available data on proposed solutions, and determine an optimal solution. Examples of major global or local problems could include water pollution or availability, air pollution, deforestation, or energy production.

Gas Properties
Restricted Use

Rating

Pump gas molecules to a box and see what happens as you change the volume, add or remove heat, and more. Measure the temperature and pressure, and discover how the properties of the gas vary in relation to each other. Examine kinetic energy and speed histograms for light and heavy particles. Explore diffusion and determine how concentration, temperature, mass, and radius affect the rate of diffusion.

Lesson 1 - Annotating Geological Columns
Restricted Use
Copyright Restricted
Rating

Google folder with lesson plan and accompanying resources/ Students use resources to help identify time periods when layers in SE geological columns were deposited. Next they will use maps of Utah through time to identify time periods where San Juan County was covered by water. Water allows for deposition of sediments including salts as the water evaporates. Once they identify time periods they are given a geological column for SE Utah and identify where in time San Juan had ocean/seas/marshes. Last, students will identify the four main natural resources: Potash, Oil and Gas, Copper, and Uranium within the geological columns with teacher direction.

Science Core Guide: Earth and Space Science
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

The Science Core Guides are created to provide guidance for developing effective instruction aligned to the Utah Science with Engineering Education (SEEd) Standards. They are intended to support teachers, administrators, science specialists, instructional coaches, parents, and other stakeholders as they plan instruction at a local level.

The Core Guides are not intended to be read from cover to cover. They are meant as a resource document to be used, when needed, to support teacher professional learning and curriculum decisions. They are not meant to be used by students, and therefore they may not be written in student-friendly language. The Core Guides are meant to inform teachers and leaders as they make science curriculum decisions.
