About the event

EARTH SCIENCE CONTENT FOR GRADES 3-5, Including the phenomenon of the solar eclipse. February 23, 2024 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. (SESSION #2403)

Presentation includes activities for interactive notebooking, stations, and whole class instruction. 

The following TEKS will be addressed:

Grade 5

(9) Earth and space. The student recognizes patterns among the Sun, Earth, and Moon system and their effects. The student is expected to demonstrate that Earth rotates on its axis once approximately every 24 hours and explain how that causes the day/night cycle and the appearance of the Sun moving across the sky, resulting in changes in shadow positions and shapes.

(10) Earth and space. The student knows that there are recognizable patterns and processes on Earth. The student is expected to:

(A) explain how the Sun and the ocean interact in the water cycle and affect weather;

(B) model and describe the processes that led to the formation of sedimentary rocks and fossil fuels; and

(C) model and identify how changes to Earth's surface by wind, water, or ice result in the formation of landforms, including deltas, canyons, and sand dunes.

(11) Earth and space. The student understands how natural resources are important and can be managed. The student is expected to design and explain solutions such as conservation, recycling, or proper disposal to minimize environmental impact of the use of natural resources.

Grade 4

(9) Earth and space. The student recognizes patterns among the Sun, Earth, and Moon system and their effects. The student is expected to:

(A) collect and analyze data to identify sequences and predict patterns of change in seasons such as change in temperature and length of daylight; and

(B) collect and analyze data to identify sequences and predict patterns of change in the observable appearance of the Moon from Earth.

(10) Earth and space. The student knows that there are processes on Earth that create patterns of change. The student is expected to:

(A) describe and illustrate the continuous movement of water above and on the surface of Earth through the water cycle and explain the role of the Sun as a major source of energy in this process;

(B) model and describe slow changes to Earth's surface caused by weathering, erosion, and deposition from water, wind, and ice; and

(C) differentiate between weather and climate.

(11) Earth and space. The student understands how natural resources are important and can be managed. The student is expected to:

(A) identify and explain advantages and disadvantages of using Earth's renewable and nonrenewable natural resources such as wind, water, sunlight, plants, animals, coal, oil, and natural gas;

(B) explain the critical role of energy resources to modern life and how conservation, disposal, and recycling of natural resources impact the environment; and

(C) determine the physical properties of rocks that allow Earth's natural resources to be stored there. 

Grade 3

(9) Earth and space. The student knows there are recognizable objects and patterns in Earth's solar system. The student is expected to:

(A) construct models and explain the orbits of the Sun, Earth, and Moon in relation to each other; and

(B) identify the order of the planets in Earth's solar system in relation to the Sun.

(10) Earth and space. The student knows that there are recognizable processes that change Earth over time. The student is expected to:

(A)  compare and describe day-to-day weather in different locations at the same time, including air temperature, wind direction, and precipitation;

(B) investigate and explain how soils such as sand and clay are formed by weathering of rock and by decomposition of plant and animal remains; and

(C) model and describe rapid changes in Earth's surface such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and landslides.

(11) Earth and space. The student understands how natural resources are important and can be managed. The student is expected to:

(A) explore and explain how humans use natural resources such as in construction, in agriculture, in transportation, and to make products;

(B) explain why the conservation of natural resources is important; and

(A) (C) identify ways to conserve natural resources through reducing, reusing, or recycling.
