of the new 6th Grade Science Scope
Participants will download and investigate the Google Earth Application.
Everything we do should be in Google notebook and shared. Once the application is installed, each participant will have time to explore Google Earth on his or her own. At the end of this session, participants will be asked to share some specific implications for use in a 6th grade science/weather unit.
Google Earth) support a 6th grade science weather unit.
Participants will install the weather and storm tracking tools and organize them into folders.
During work time participants explore using various tools.
Lesson 6 Facilitator Agenda
Lesson 6 Participant Agenda Scientists use data
Participants will use Google spreadsheets to collect and interpret data. Participants use Weather Bonk to collect and analyze weather data.
How can we enter data from Google Earth (appropriate science activity must be selected) into Google Spreadsheets? Bobby can show with a sample lesson how to do Google Spreadsheets and then the participants use the lesson 5 info to input into their spreadsheet. Participants can integrate the Google spreadsheets feature or Google docs feature into their lesson.
Lesson 7 Facilitator Agenda
Lesson 7 Participant Agenda
Participants discover how
Participants will explore using place marks, paths, polygons, and the ruler to enhance a science weather lesson.
Participants create a second lesson using these tools and have the opportunity to explore this tool. This tool should be something that allows participants to produce information.
unit using the rubrics and checklists introduced in lesson five to evaluate
Participants will learn how to post lessons on Google docs and allow others to view, discuss, and collaborate.
