PART 1Yesterday we spent time learning how to write a constructed response answer for science questions (aka: A GOOD ANSWER).
- We used a chart to help us to do our first RACE answer: RACE Observation-Inference.
- Today we will compare our answers and type up the full answer on our computers to print and put in our science journals.
PART 2 – QUIZLET ACCOUNTS
- All students will make sure they have Quizlet accounts.
- We will review how to practice vocabulary in a variety of ways on this site.
- Being a Scientist Vocabulary: https://quizlet.com/_34jfdi
Welcome to your science website. This website will be an incredible resource for you this year. On this site you may find:
- Lessons we did in class.
- Resources you need to do homework.
- Documents we did together and sometimes even links to homework.
TODAY’S FOCUS: QUIZLET and GOOGLE CLASSROOM
- Create an account.
- Your user name MUST BE your FIRST NAME, FIRST LETTER OF YOUR LAST NAME, and the numbers 353 all in lower case and all as one word.
- For example: kellyf353
The first Quizlet we will practice is called:

STATION 8: Chemical Weathering
- Vinegar definition- a sour-tasting liquid containing acetic acid. (Yes! Vinegar is an acid!)
- Acid Rain definition– rain that contains dangerous chemicals because of smoke from cars and factories. It is more acidic than regular rain.
- Answer to Questions 1 and 2 are found here in the following information:
- The Environmental Legacy of Acid Rain in Maine- https://umaine.edu/news/blog/2016/08/09/environmental-legacy-acid-rain/
- The Rain in Maine- http://infohouse.p2ric.org/ref/05/04769.htm
- What is acid rain? http://www.clean-air-kids.org.uk/acidrain.html
STATION 9: Gravity Simulation
Mass Wasting Definition– the large movement of rock, soil and debris downward due to the force of gravity.
Mass Wasting Simulation and Types
- What type of mass wasting did you simulate? Your Answer is Here– http://www.encyclopedia.com/topic/Rockfall.aspx
- Other information on mass wasting:

- Landslides in Maine– http://maine.gov/dacf/mgs/hazards/landslides/index.shtml
STATION 10: Wave Action
- Definition: Coastal erosion is when material along a coastline is broken down and taken away by the movement of wind & water.
- It leads to the formation of many landforms and, combined with deposition, plays an important role in shaping the coastline. https://geographyas.info/coasts/coastal-erosion/
- Information and Simulations of Different types of Coastal Erosion: http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/geography/coasts/coastal_processes_rev3.shtml
- What are issues relating to coastal erosion?
STATION 11: Water Runoff, Erosion, and Deposition
Runoff (or Surface Runoff) Definition– water, from rain, snowmelt, or other sources, that flows over the land surface. It is a major part of the water cycle and a major force of erosion.
- USGS Water Run Off– http://water.usgs.gov/edu/runoff.html
- Landforms Created by Running Water– http://www.ehow.com/info_7996540_landforms-running-water-create.html
- River Landforms- https://geographyas.info/rivers/river-landforms/
- Water Erosion– http://soilerosion.net/doc/water_erosion.html
STATION 12: Weathering
- Ice wedging– cracks in rock or other surfaces fill with water, freeze and expand, causing the cracks to enlarge and eventually break
- Root wedging– when roots end up in cracks in rocks, they eventually grow larger and can split the rock apart.
- Oxidation– when oxygen reacts with metal elements in a rock, creating a new substance. Brown/orange rust can be a clue.
- Hydrolysis– the chemical breakdown of a substance when combined with water.
- Abrasion– the wearing down of rock by friction from other rocks, materials, and processes.
- Carbonation– the mixing of water with carbon dioxide to make carbonic acid. This type of weathering is important in the formation of caves.
- Exfoliation– the rock’s layers peel off in whole sheets instead of grain by grain.
- Lichen and Moss– produce weak acids, which weaken rocks and turn some to clay.
