Students will learn that physical land features have developed over time.
Geologic time is measured in millions of years (MYA.) The acronym MYA is used because the time span is so large.We know the most about recent history because it has left the most evidence of physical land features and changes.
1-Use science process and thinking skills.
2-Manifest scientific attitudes and interests.
3-Understand science concepts and principles.
5-Demonstrate awareness of social and historical aspects of science.
Invitation to Learn:
Prepare a timeline of your own life to show to your students. You will need to show 15-20 things that have happened over the course of your life. Begin with your birth (using as accurate as dates as possible) and ending with your current age and date. Show students your timeline, and tell them some of the highlights of your life. Explain that many of the items on your timeline have occurred in the recent past, when memory is more clear and vivid.
This lesson is part of the Fifth Grade Science Teacher Resource Book (TRB3) http://www.usoe.org/curr/science/core/5th/TRB5/. The TRB3 is designed to be your textbook in teaching science curriculum to your students. This book covers all the objectives of each standard and benchmark. If taught efficiently, a student should do well on the End-of-Level (CRT) tests. The TRB3 is designed for teachers who know very little about science, as well as for teachers who have a broad understanding of science.
