In this 6-week middle school unit, students engage in a variety of earth science activities exploring plate movement, earthquakes, volcanoes and mountain formation. Lessons frequently reference the book “The Amazing Earth Model Book Easy-to-make Hands-on Model That Teach” and bibliographic information is provided for this text. Students will accumulate work samples throughout the project, all of which can be used as reference for creating the culminating pop-up book. Excellent attached materials provide rationales, procedures, notes and examples for many of the activities, including cinquain poems, metaphors, KWL charts, model-building and collage. Additional websites are provided for presentation and research. Many rubrics, some brief and others extensive, are provided throughout. This unit is thoughtfully designed and immediately useful in the classroom.
