    The Integrated Evolution of Earth and Life

     

    1. I can summarize how earthquakes, volcanoes, and continental boundaries reveal plate tectonics. (Plate Tec maps lab)
    2. I can use seismic data to model the interior of Earth. (Graphing p-wave v depth)
    3. I can connect natural forces (mantle convection, plate motion, weathering, erosion) to land and seafloor geologic features. (Earth layers model and convection drawings)
    4. I can experimentally determine the age of a rock, fossil, or artifact using radiometric dating. (mini-dice lab)
    5. I can place events in Earth’s history on a timeline and explain the distribution of those events. (timeline activity)
    6. I can use a stream table to show the formation of an erosional or depositional stream feature. (stream table lab)
    7. I can explain the formation of a stream feature. (stream table lab)
    8. I can design a stream table experiment involving erosion and rate of change of Earth’s surface. (stream table investigation)
    9. I can explain how stream table data shows the rate of change of Earth’s surface. (stream table investigation)
    10. I can use data to analyze and explain limiting factors within a biome or ecosystem. (Oh Deer! Kinesthetic lab)
    11. I can analyze and explain the effects of geologic processes on the evolution of species. (Galapagos tortoise or Canary Island lizards labs)
    12. I can analyze and explain the effects of geologic processes on the evolution of species. (Galapagos tortoise or Canary Island lizards labs)
    13. I can simulate and explain the effects of selective pressure on a population’s gene pool. (stickleback lab)
    14. I can create a detailed model of the simultaneous, multi-scale, spatial and temporal evolution of Earth and life. (final project)
