  2. 2. What Words do you think we will NOT cover <br />Soil<br />Composition<br />Oceans<br />Carbon<br />Cycle <br />crystals<br />Dinosaurs<br />Photosynthesis<br />Igneous<br />Currents<br />Mantle<br />Thunderstorms<br />Acid rain<br />Biology<br />
  3. 3. So, What Will Earth<br />Science Be Like?!?!<br />
  4. 4. We will begin <br />the year with<br />Geology!<br />
  5. 5. Some topics include…<br /><ul><li>Minerals
  6. 6. Rocks
  7. 7. Earth’s Structure
  8. 8. Geologic Time
  9. 9. Fossils
  10. 10. Volcanoes
  11. 11. Earthquakes
  12. 12. Soil Profile
  13. 13. Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition
  14. 14. Continental Drift
  15. 15. Plate Tectonics
  16. 16. Energy Resources
  17. 17. Ecology</li></li></ul><li>unexco.com<br />Rocks and minerals<br />uhh.hawaii.edu<br />Volcanoes<br />
  18. 18. Earth’s Structure<br /> Wind <br /> Energy<br />Plate Tectonics<br />
  19. 19. sculpturegallery.com<br />dinoland.dk<br />Fossils and prehistoric life!<br />palaeo.gly.bris.ac.uk<br />
  20. 20. In January, we will move on to Oceanography…<br />tgs-inc.com<br />
  21. 21. Oceanography is the study of the water found on the earth. <br />Sometimes it is called Hydrology.<br />Hydro- means “water” <br />And -ology means “the study of.”<br />
  22. 22. Some topics include…<br /><ul><li>Ocean Topography
  23. 23. Salinity
  24. 24. Waves
  25. 25. Currents
  26. 26. Tides
  27. 27. Water Distribution
  28. 28. Hydrologic Cycle
  29. 29. River System
  30. 30. Pollution
  31. 31. Conservation</li></li></ul><li>Ocean water<br />waves on the ocean<br />wallpapers-box.uv.ro<br />The ocean floor<br />geology.ucdavis.edu/<br />
  32. 32. River Systems<br />www.bcl.com.au<br />Currents<br />pasture.ecn.purdue.edu<br />
  33. 33. Next we will look at<br />Meteorology<br />This is the study of the air and our weather.<br />
  34. 34. Some topics include<br />Atmosphere<br />Weather Factors<br />Instruments<br />Fronts<br />Clouds<br />Wind Patterns<br />Air Masses<br />Weather Maps<br />Severe Weather<br />Climate<br />
  35. 35.
  36. 36. mypage.bluewin.ch<br />Tornadoes<br />newsfromrussia.com<br />Hurricanes<br />We will discover why these things happen.<br />Thunderstorms<br />weatherquestions.com<br />
  37. 37. At the end of the year, <br />we will study<br />Astronomy.<br />
  38. 38. Astronomy is the study of our solar system and everything found outside it!<br />That's a lot of stuff!<br />
  39. 39. Objects in the Solar System<br />(NASA.gov)<br />
  40. 40. Objects outside the Solar System<br />(NASA.gov)<br />Galaxies<br />Nebula<br />Stars<br />
  41. 41. So hang on for the<br />best year of<br />science ever !!!!<br />
  42. 42. Earth<br />Science<br />Syllabus<br />
  43. 43. The "real" name for<br />this class should be<br />"Earth and Space"<br /> Science<br />
  44. 44. There are four big<br />parts to our year!<br />Oceanography<br />Meteorology<br />Oceanography<br />Geology<br />Let’s take a quick look at each!<br />Astronomy<br />
  45. 45. It’s now time to brush up on our Process Skills<br />
  46. 46. What are science process skills?<br />The foundation of the scientific method<br />Six basic skills: <br />Observation<br />Inference<br />Classification<br />Measurement<br />Communication<br />Prediction<br />We will be working on these all year! <br />
  47. 47. Science Table of Contents<br />Date: 8/10<br />Section:<br />Title: Observation & Inference<br />Page: 2 <br />
  48. 48. Observations and Inferences<br />Look at the drawing. <br />What do you notice and what do you think is going to happen?<br />
  49. 49. Observations and <br />Inferences<br />How does your story change?<br />
  50. 50. Observations and <br />Inferences<br />How does your story change?<br />
  51. 51. Observations and <br />Inferences<br />What do you observe?<br />What do you infer?<br />Compare what you think now <br />to your earlier written accounts. <br />
  52. 52. Observations and Inferences<br />Observations are what you notice<br />Inferencesare your reactions, thoughts or explanations<br />
  53. 53. 1<br />Write one observation. <br />Write one inference<br />
  54. 54. 2<br />Write one observation. <br />Write one inference<br />
  55. 55. 3<br />Write one observation. <br />Write one inference<br />
  56. 56. 4<br />Write one observation. <br />Write one inference<br />
  57. 57. 5<br />Write one observation. <br />Write one inference<br />
  58. 58. 6<br />Write one observation. <br />Write one inference<br />
  59. 59. Question of the Day<br />How can people have different inferences about the same observations. <br />
  60. 60. Word Splash <br />DUE FRIDAY<br /><ul><li>Use all the words on the sheet
  61. 61. you are going to creatively think of how to express the WORD
  62. 62. You DO NOT have to put the definition
  63. 63. You can type it or you can hand write it
  64. 64. Must fit on the construction paper</li></ul>I want to see how creative you are! <br />
