Lesson

System Sleuths

In System Sleuths, students will reflect on and apply all content learned in this unit of study. They will be engaging in a group observation walk in a natural environment near their school to detect Earth’s systems, work to classify these systems, and determine their many interactions. They will apply this new knowledge by working together to present information to their peers and share what they have observed by reporting on their learning. They will use critical thinking skills by critiquing their peers’ work while providing meaningful feedback to each other. They will use what they’ve learned from each other to create a visual model of Earth’s systems and articulate their interactions.
