My lesson looks at the effects Earth’s axial tilt has on the planetary and local scales.
My lesson plan integrates cultural standards D and E. Specifically D2 and E1 and E3.
Curriculum standard D. 2. engages students in the construction of new knowledge and understandings that contribute to an ever-expanding view of the world.
In the lesson plan the students contemplate the effects of a different axial tilt of the earth. They are challenged to use the knowledge the have and make hypotheses.
Curriculum standard E. 1. encourages students to consider the inter-relationship between their local circumstances and the global community;
3. prepares students to “think globally, act locally.”
In this unit the students discuss the global causes of seasons and relate them to the local level. They also touch on the possible effects changes at the global level will have on their town.
