Elementary GLOBE Unit: All About Earth Our World on Stage DLESE Reviewed Collection
In this activity, the GLOBE Kids are excited to perform a play for the rest of the school, demonstrating what they have learned about the Earth and all of its parts. They hit a glitch when they cannot decide which Earth component is the most important, but end up learning a lot about the Earth, Sun, water, air, soil, and living things, and the way these components are interconnected. In Activity 1: Earth System in a Bottle, students will understand how water, soil, and sunlight support plant life. They will learn how to set up fair tests, record detailed observations, draw conclusions, and share their results. In Activity 2: We're All Connected, students will gain an awareness that the Earth's processed are interconnected and that Earth system interactions can be seen all around them. In Activity 3: Earth System Play, students will demonstrate their knowledge of the Earth as a system of the above-mentioned components.
