Earth's Spheres Activities for 5th Grade Science
The resources below will provide students a comprehensive understanding of the Earth's spheres. All of the following lessons are also included in the Kesler Science Membership.
The Earth's Spheres 5E Lesson includes materials for every "E" phase, including the Earth's Spheres Station Lab for Exploration and an interactive PowerPoint with digital INB templates for Explanation.
The lesson also includes introduction materials for Engagement, student-choice project ideas for Elaboration, and assessments for Evaluation.
After completing the Earth's Spheres 5E Lesson, students will be able to develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact. [Clarification Statement: Examples could include the influence of the ocean on ecosystems, landform shape, and climate; the influence of the atmosphere on landforms and ecosystems through weather and climate; and the influence of mountain ranges on winds and clouds in the atmosphere. The geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere are each a system.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to the interactions of two systems at a time.]
