NAME The Unit Organizer 4 BIGGER PICTURE DATE How scientific data allows us to explore the cycles and patterns of the universe? 2 LAST UNIT /Experience Characteristics of the 8 Universe UNIT SCHEDULE Day 1 – Launch UO Day 2 – Comparison Table Day 3 – Guest Teach LINCs Day 4 - LAB Angle of Light Day 5 – Anchoring Table Reasons for the Seasons Day 6 – ORDER Lunar Cycle Day 7 - Kernel Essay Day 8 – Comparison Table Tides Day 9 - QEG Day10 – Unit Assessment 5 1 Earth, Sun, & Moon 3 CURRENT CURRENT UNIT UNIT NEXT UNIT /Experience Weather Systems UNIT MAP understanding the effects resulting from causing cyclical movements by Modeling Reasons for Day predicting & Night Illustrating & analyzing Reasons for the Seasons Relating & modeling Tides (8.7C) Lunar Cycle (8.7B) 6 UNIT 7 Analyze Data 1. How does the tilt of the Earth’s axis and the Earth’s revolution around the Sun cause (8.2E & 8.3A) seasons? 2. How does the Earth’s rotation cause day and night? Model (8.7A & 8.3B) 3. What is the sequence of events in the lunar cycle in relationship to the cyclical movements Demonstrate & of the Moon’s revolution around the Earth compared to the position of the Sun? 4. What causes changes in water levels in the Earth’s bodies of water? Predict (8.7B) 5. Why would people be interested in knowing the time of tides and the phases of the Moon? Relate (8.7C) RELATIONSHIPS UNIT SELF-TEST QUESTIONS (8.7A) The Unit Organizer 9 Expanded Unit Map THE Reasons for Earth, Sun, & Moon Cycles & Patterns causing Day & Night Causing NAME DATE are studied by geologists. Defined as Causing Earth rotates on it’s axis every 24hr Causing The vertical movement of water going up and down. The Lunar Cycle Reasons Caused by for the Seasons Which is The tilt of the Earth on its Axis Which Impacts the angle of light (heat) from the sun To be DIRECT (more photons) SUMMER OR NEW UNIT SELF-TEST QUESTIONS AKA (also known as) The Phases of the Moon Which include New MOON 1st quarter MOON Full MOON 3rd quarter MOON Start After 1 Week After 2 Weeks After 3 Weeks Gravity from the Moon making the oceans bulge out. 2 types of tides High Tide Low Tide Motion of Water described 3 ways Flow (rising) Ebb (falling) Slack Water (no change) INDIRECT (less photons) WINTER Am I able to ___? 10 Tides The phases of the moon are caused by the moon’s position relative to Earth and the Sun. 8.7 (A) model and illustrate how the tilted Earth rotates on its axis, causing day and night, and revolves around the Sun causing changes in seasons; 8.7 (B) demonstrate and predict the sequence of events in the lunar cycle; 8.7 (C) relate the position of the Moon and Sun to their effect on ocean tides.
