SCOPE AND SEQUENCE

This is just a suggested scope and sequence. The Bethune students studied the topics below before they began their action plan. There are many ways to teach each of the topics listed. Your school district may use their own curriculum or they may use kits and curriculum. Bethune used a combination of the district curriculum, FOSS kits, STC kits, and Bethune's own EEI (Education for the Energy Industry) curriculum. This web activity will not show every lesson we completed to answer our two essential questions. There are many ways to find the answer. We also needed to follow our Texas State Standards and our school district benchmark targets.

The Rock Cycle

Earth materials are solid rocks and soils, water, and the gases of the atmosphere. The varied materials have different physical and chemical properties, which make them useful in different ways, for example, as building materials, as sources of fuel, or for growing the plants we use as food. Earth materials provide many of the resources that humans use.

K - 4 Earth Science

The Rock Cycle

Some changes in the solid Earth can be described as the "rock cycle." Old rocks at the Earth's surface weather, forming sediments that are buried, then compacted, heated, and often recrystallized into new rock.

5 - 8 Earth Science

Fossils

Fossils provide evidence about the plants and animals that lived long ago and the nature of the environment at that time.

K - 4 Earth Science

Rock Formations That Contain Oil and Natural Gas

Living organisms have played many roles in the Earth system, including impacting the composition of the atmosphere, producing some types of rocks, and contributing to the weathering of rocks.

5 - 8 Earth Science

SCIENCE IN PERSONAL AND SOCIAL PERSPECTIVES STANDARDS

An important purpose of science education is to give students a means to understand and act on personal and social issues. The science in personal and social perspectives standards help students develop decision-making skills. Understandings associated with the content standards give students a foundation on which to base decisions they will face as citizens.
