Grade 8 Final Project – Water Systems Video

To complete our study of water systems we will be making a video that models a natural water system.

The outcome of this assignment is:

Examine how wind, water, and ice have shaped and continue to shape the Canadian landscape. [DM, SI]

Indicators:

  1. Create a written, visual, physical, or dramatic representation of the processes that lead to the development of rivers, lakes, continental drainage systems, and ocean basins, including glaciation, continental drift, erosion, and volcanic action.
  2. Relate factors that affect glacier formation and reduction and their effects on the environment to the formation of glacial landforms in Saskatchewan (e.g., drumlins, moraines, eskers, and kettle lakes).

 

Topics:

River Delta Formation – Connor,Desire, Will

Young River Representation- Brent, Geneva, Brett

Mature River Representation- Rachele, Elgin, Desmon, Jayde

Old River Representation – Emma-Lyn, Cole,  Alex

Continental Glacier Representation- Brooklyn,Madison,  Ashley, Molly

Our next unit is all abut the interaction between water and our Earth.

There are 3 sections that are covered by 3 outcomes

  1. Analyze the impact of natural and human-induced changes to the characteristics and distribution of water in local, regional and national ecosystems.
  2. Examine how wind, water, and ice have shaped and continue to shape the Canadian landscape.
  3. Analyze natural factors and human practices that affect productivity and species   distribution in marine and fresh water environments.

What are some big ideas for this unit?

Go to http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/earthwherewater.html

A. There are 3 graphic organizers on the page

1. Bar Graph

2. A picture of the Earth with representative water drops

3. A Chart of the world’s water distribution

B. Which of these is the best graphic for you to learn from? Tell why.

Check out this water cycle for kids. http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/watercycle-kids.html Tell two things you learned from it.

C. go to http://cjme.com/story/saskatchewan-flooding-forecast-shows-where-risk-very-high/100175
