Tip of the Iceberg: An Introduction to Landforms A prezi by Shira Carroll
EDIM 503 This prezi is designed to introduce fourth grade students to a Science unit about landforms and water. They will learn to identify a number of different landforms and bodies of water found in nature. In addition, they will be able to describe the ways that land and water change and shape each other. This presentation will be used as an introduction, but can also be utilized for review at the completion of the unit. In addition, this is a great resource to use to prepare for state testing. Students will work through the presentation in partners or small groups and respond to each task in their Science notebooks. Standards:
Assessment Anchor - S4.B.3: Ecological Behavior and Systems

Anchor Descriptor - S4.B.3.1: Identify and describe living and nonliving things in the environment and their interaction.

S4.B.3.1.2: Describe interactions between living and nonliving components (e.g. plants – water, soil, sunlight, carbon dioxide, temperature; animals – food, water, shelter, oxygen, temperature) of a local ecosystem.

Anchor Descriptor - S4.B.3.2: Describe, explain, and predict change in natural or human-made systems and the possible effects of those changes on the environment.

S4.B.3.2.2: Describe and predict how changes in the environment (e.g., fire, pollution, flood, building dams) can affect systems. http://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/science/rocks-minerals-landforms/landforms.htm Visit Scholastic's Study Jams to learn all about different types of landforms. After you watch the slideshow, take the test and see how you do. Afterwards, sing a little karaoke, landforms style!

If you hear of any bodies of water that you've already written down in your notebook, put a star next to them. If you hear any new ones, add them to your list. Bringing it all together Mrs. Rice uses pictures and songs to review landforms and bodies of water. Enjoy! What do you know? In your Science notebook, write paragraph describing the ways land and water change each other. Draw at least one illustration to go with your paragraph. References
