Teaching for the Future: The Integration of ELA in the Elementary Classroom
The focus was on: 4.ESS2: Earth’s Systems 1) Collect and analyze data from observations to provide evidence that rocks, soils, and sediments are broken into smaller pieces through mechanical weathering. 2) Interpret maps to determine that the location of mountain ranges, deep ocean trenches, volcanoes, and earthquakes occur in patterns. 3) Provide examples to support the claim that organisms affect the physical characteristics of their regions. 4) Analyze and interpret data on the four layers of the Earth, including thickness, composition, and physical states of these layers.
