1. Students will

1.1. Know

1.1.1. What ate rocks? What are natural resources? The various types of rocks & minerals. The properties of rocks & minerals. How rocks are formed? Impact of rock formation (positive & negative --- (economic activities) Why do we need rocks? (Uses/purpose)

1.1.1.1. The various types of rocks?

1.2. Understand

1.2.1. Meaning of natural resources Meaning of rocks Types of rocks Physical properties/characteristics of rocks & minerals how igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks are formed patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers changes in the landscape over time. difference between rocks (composed of two or more minerals) and minerals (composed of the same substance throughout) how the differences determine the use of rocks that soils are made from rocks and organic matter Impact of weathering, soil erosion, and mining

1.3. Do

1.4. Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation. Make observations and collect data to provide evidence that rocks, soils, and sediments are broken into smaller pieces through mechanical weathering and moved around through erosion. Collect evidence of change from local landforms, rocks, or fossils Use a variety of tests to identify the physical properties of minerals Use a variety of criteria to classify common rocks and minerals according to their characteristics Compare and group together different kinds of rocks and soil on the basis of their appearance and simple physical properties Use a graphic organizer to show how rocks and minerals are used in daily life Follow established safety procedures for outdoor activities and for working with tools, materials, and equipment Use scientific inquiry/research skills to investigate how rocks and minerals are used, recycled, and disposed of in everyday life Assess the social and environmental costs and benefits of using objects in the built environment that are made from rocks and minerals Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation.Make observations and collect data to provide evidence that rocks, soils, and sediments are broken into smaller pieces through mechanical weathering and moved around through erosion.
