Monday April 29, 2013-Honors

  • Warm Up: In what ways are glaciers similar to rivers? Answer the question using the A-R-E model.
  • Continue Reading and note taking 423-430-Glacial Erosion and Deposition
  • T.O.D.  Choose six key terms and write a pun or analogy.
  • Pictionary Review(Quiz tomorrow)

 

 

Monday 2nd & 3rd

v  Warm Up-Describe firn? Describe a glacier?

v  *completed Friday 4-26-13*Modeling Glacial Ice Formation: Using a square piece of paper “Fold the paper in half diagonally and in half again. Next, fold the paper in 3rds. Then cut several small areas from each of the three edges and unfold.” –A snowflake contain 90-95%air; firn (grainy ice)contains 20-305 air, and glacial ice contains less than 10% air. Model glacial ice formation by crushing the paper snowflake in your hands first into a golf ball size to represent firn; and then into as small and as compact as possible to represent glacial ice.

v  Reading and note taking-p 419-422 (Glaciers Moving Ice)

v  T.O.D. – Concept Map: Glacier, firn, snowline, snowfield, alpine glacier, continental glacier, basal slip, internal plastic flow, ice shelf, ice berg, and crevasse. Quiz tomorrow!

Honors:v  Warm Up: The landscape of what is today the State of Wisconsin exhibits a great variety of evidence of the glacier that covered two-thirds of the state approximately 14, 000 to 16,000 years ago.

The state capital sits on a low, tear-shaped hill that has been identified as a landscape feature resulting from glaciation. There are areas of exposed bedrock in the state that have deep scratches, or striations. Many of Wisconsin’s lakes lie in depressions formed by glaciation. Central Wisconsin is a fertile agricultural area due to its topsoil.

What caused the striations in the exposed bedrock?

All Classes:v  Create/Assemble Atmospheric Display Boards

How does the movement of water through the hydrosphere impact human life?

v  Warm Up: Explain how changes in the size of a glacier may indicate climate change.

v  Quiz –Glaciers Moving Ice

v  Read and take notes 423-430- Glacial Erosion and Deposition

v  T.O.D.-Name three examples of landforms created by glaciers. And, list the two processes that create the landforms.

Wednesday, 2nd & 3rd

  • No warm Up
  • Visual Display Project of how atmospheric conditions impact the biosphere?

LEQ-What are the components of the hydrosphere?

v  Warm Up: Write a paragraph telling what you know about ice and glaciers.

v  Modeling Glacial Ice Formation: Using a square piece of paper “Fold the paper in half diagonally and in half again. Next, fold the paper in 3rds. Then cut several small areas from each of the three edges and unfold.” –A snowflake contains 90-95%air; firn (grainy ice) contains 20-30%   air, and glacial ice contains less than 10% air. Model glacial ice formation by crushing the paper snowflake in your hands first into a golf ball size to represent firn; and then into as small and as compact as possible to represent glacial ice.

v  T.O.D.- Concept Map: Glacier, firn, snowline, snowfield, alpine glacier, continental glacier, basal slip, internal plastic flow, ice shelf, ice berg, crevasse.

Tuesday -2nd & 3rd

v  Warm Up:  Create a Frayer Model for the term BIOSPHERE.

v  Using a rubric peer grade- Essay question (LEQ) – What are the physical and chemical characteristics of water that make it uniquely suited to support life on Earth?

v  Assign: Visual Display Project of how atmospheric conditions impact the biosphere?

  • If you are working with a partner divide the labor.
  • Begin researching (Ms. Culver has supplied some) at home; bring all information to class on Wednesday 4-24-13. You will have the entire class period to create the display board.
  • Make the Rubric at home (Rubristar.com) and bring to class on  Thursday 4-25-13
  • The final product is due and being graded on Thursday 4-25-13.
  • Begin planning project; get information from the text book.
