  1. We are road tripping across the US this summer hitting as many parks as we can. If I want to give my son high school credit for a course, how much should we be doing? Anything to add? We'll do the Geology of the National Parks GC lectures and I just ordered a Geology text. His math skills are lacking so he's not really had a physical science, and I was thinking this might be a better alternative to chemistry. (He's slowing making his way through Fred Chemustry.)
  2. I am looking for unit studies on any of the following appropriate for a 6th grader . Ideally I would love unit studies that also could be adapted for a 8 year old as well because I'd like to combine subjects as much as possible, but my 11 year old NEEDS to learn this stuff by year after next (will be attending a public 7th grade) while my 8 year old doesn't need to study this yet. FORCE, MOTION AND ENERGY LAYERS OF THE EARTH ROCK CYCLE (metamorphic, igneous, sedimentary rock) ECOSYSTEMS BIOLOGY (Cells, Taxonomic classifications, Organisms and their Environments) SPACE Would also love suggestions of good videos about these topics. Any suggestions appreciated!
  3. http://www.bgs.ac.uk/discoveringGeology/geologyOfBritain/minecraft/home.html#/588547/64/-498462/-11/0/0 "Inspired by the Ordnance Survey (OS), BGS has reproduced the 2D geology of mainland Great Britain and surrounding islands within the world of Minecraft. This map shows the OS map data on the surface and the rough position of real geology beneath, repeated down to the bedrock. In reality the geology varies with depth, like cake layers, and BGS is working on representing the arrangement of the rocks and sediments in the form of a 3D geological model. Watch this space! NEW! 3D geological models in Minecraft Following on from the scale model of Great Britain, BGS has taken another step into the world of Minecraft by creating three-dimensional representations of geology at several locations across the country. These models show how the geology rises and falls, overlaps and folds and at different depths."

  4. My youngest daughter wants to study Geology over the summer. We are wrapping up McHenry Botany next week and she is now interested in Geology. So far I have the following: Tops Rocks & Minerals Hands of a Child Rocks & Minerals Lapbook Basher Rocks & Minerals Book A rock tumber my husband found at the Goodwill, it was complete and a good find Geodes to crack A 2 day class in July called Rocks, Gems, and Minerals at a local Science Institute I want her to have enough material for about 6 weeks. I was looking at a game on Amazon called Rock On that comes with a bunch of rocks. It looks neat but after reading reviews sounds for a much younger audience. Anyone have any fun games to add or any other suggestions to add to the reading.
  5. I've been looking for resources to go along with the Tarbuck Earth Science text that's been suggested here. I did a search for past threads and came up with some wonderful suggestions and resources (and a great poster who was willing to share her syllabus - thanks!). I also went a-Googlin' (like a-wassailin' but with less singing and imbibing... :D ) and found a few resources that I didn't see on any of the older threads so I'd thought I'd share. Forgive me if someone has already shared some or all of these and I just didn't see - I'm not sure if my forum search turned up ALL the old threads. *Note: These resources are for the 11th ed of the text. It seemed to be the one with the most free resources (and it's cheaper 'cause it's older). http://wps.prenhall.com/esm_tarbuck_escience_11/ This is a completely free text companion website from Pearson. No sign-up, no login needed - nothing! It has resources for each chapter including section quizzes and a chapter test. http://www.oakton.edu/user/4/billtong/eas100/index.html Syllabus for a community college using the text. http://mansfield.osu.edu/faculty/ocosta/ES203/syllabus.pdf Syllabus from Ohio State. http://capone.mtsu.edu/cdharris/GEOL100/ Great webpage with lots of resources but a pain to navigate. http://www2.tesc.edu/coursemanuals/dagang/eas-101-jan.pdf Syllabus from Thomas Edison State College.
  6. Just kill me now! I'll be honest, we NEVER did Earth Science the first time around with my oldest. We did Astronomy first semester, and then I never did find something that caught our interest for Earth Science second semester, and then I had surgery so we never did it! Now, I need to do Earth Science with my youngest who will be in 4th grade next year and I have absolutely no idea where to start. I'm using AIG with my oldest for Earth Science this year, but I really don't think that it's a good curriculum for 4th grade. Is there nothing out there? Apologia has nothing, RS4K has nothing, NOEO doesn't even have earth science! I have Christian Kids Explore, but I don't like it. It's boring. I don't know, maybe I'm being stubborn, but there's got to be something better. Kwim? So, what have you got? What should we use? What has the Charlotte Mason feel with fun activities and experiments? What makes Earth Science fun? Thanks! Dorinda
  7. I have two textbooks on Geology from the library sitting in front of me. What level are these books? Earth Science by Tarbuck and Lutgens 9th edition Earth An Introduction to Physical Geology by Tarbuck and Lutgens 7th edition I have other books to check as well. Is there some website where I can type in a title to see the type of class where it is typically used? Thanks!!
  8. I found a big cache of USGS publications that might be useful for folks. As an example of the type of gems that might be hidden here: A Hiker's Guide to the Geology of Old Rag Mountain, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
  9. We're studying relative time in CPO Earth Science now. Since dd remembers well our trip to the Grand Canyon in 2006, I pulled out all the books and resources I brought home with us. I decided to check the Grand Canyon section on nps.gov for additional information and while there, I stumbled across the remnants of an Electronic Field Trip from 2004. http://www.bsu.edu/eft/canyon/p/students/canyon.htm The EFT videos are no longer available but the additional information is fabulous! Check it out-----text, very short videos and some interactive games for the geology of the canyon, the ecosystems, and former residents and explorers of the area. On the "teacher" side (look at the top of any page), there are some activities that might appeal. Dd spent an enjoyable hour on this :001_smile: (Not very YEC-friendly, btw.)
  10. Has anyone used these? Likes? Dislikes? I rarely post because I can find such good information using searches, but this time the words are either too common OR nobody uses this series (maybe that's my answer). I researching for next year - ninth grade. Thanks, Lisa
  11. I need a good geology study for my 7-year-old who is gung-ho about learning to identify rocks and minerals. I'm getting a little tired of identifying the local rocks (limestone, quartz, and endless oyster fossils), and she wants more challenge. Unfortunately I have zero expertise in this area. She reads extremely well and has a good memory. Something involving a little chemistry would be great.
  12. I promise this will be the last I ask about geology stuff(fingers crossed). I am looking for some literature with some geology theme/angle. All I can come up with is Journey to the Center of the Earth. Any others you can think of? :lurk5:
  13. While I am waiting for others to add input to my 'Need Geology/ curriculum' thread, I decided to start working on making my own Geology study. This is for an average 8th grader who is just being weened from textbooks. Does it look like I am doing this correctly? We will probably be jumping around more then I want and our sequence of topics might not be in a normal flow pattern but it is what it is. Since I wanted to incorporate nature studies in with our Geology study I went to the Handbook of Nature Study to see if it had Earth Science info, and it does. It starts off with Brooks. We have a bayou just a block away from us (down the street, over a ditch and through the bramble woods) I decided this was what we would start with. Day 1: -Define Geology and write it in your notebook -Draw a picture of the Earth with a cut out to show the layers. Label, color and write a brief description of each part. Day 2: -We will be studying the 3 states of matter as it relates to the Geology, define the 3 states of matter and give several examples of each. -(We already studied the gas state of matter with the Atmosphere study we did with BJUP Earth science text, so we will study the liquid state...namely water and its effects on the earth.) Read several books on the Water Cycle and take notes. -Write a half to one page description of the water cycle -Draw a diagram of the water cycle, label, and color Day 3 -Watch DVD: Waters of the World Day 4 -Rivers, Streams, Brooks, Creeks, Bayous...what are the differences. Write the definitions of each -visit the bayou in the woods, why is this a bayou? what is it's source? where is it going to (what body of water is it emptying into)? Is it clean or cloudy? If cloudy, why? Did you view it after a rain? If not, visit it again after a heavy rain and write your observations about the differences. -Take a water sample from the bayou (careful not to scrape the muddy bottom). Let it sit on the windowsill for a week. Record daily what you see in the jar looking specifically for any silt forming at the bottom. Day 5 -write up a science lab page for the experiment we are doing, what we are trying to find out. Make sure you draw the jar of bayou water we got yesterday and then again when the experiment is over with. Create a data page you fill in daily -Read "Brook" from the Nature handbook, also read the books on Rivers and streams we got from the library, take notes Day 6 -From your readings you did, write a half to one page on how sediment is carried down rivers/streams or in your case bayous. Make sure your paragraph contains how the sediment gets there and what happens to it as it travels down the water way. Day 7 -define delta, name two famous deltas and draw pictures of them. What kind of Deltas are these? Are deltas good/bad/neither. Explain your answer and give me some examples to back up your answers (make sure to say where you get the examples from) Day 8 -Read about how a river shapes the land. Take notes. -draw a picture of a meandering river, include sandbars, banks, natural levees, ox-bow lakes, and flood plains. Day 9 -watch a DVD on Rivers This is as far as I got so far. Is it enough for an 8th grader? Not enough? We are not doing this everyday, I just headed it day 1 and so on. We are doing science about 3 days a week.
  14. I am looking at a couple of videos from Teaching Company for my dd for the coming year. Has anyone used any of the following? Meteorology: An Introduction to the Wonders of the Weather The Nature of Earth: An Introduction to Geology How the Earth Works Are any of these worth getting? Thanks
  15. I need a list of your best geology resources. We have a chance to participate in several rock/gem/fossil hunts as well a gem stone factory tour in May around the province and so I am ditching our current science to do a month long geology study. What are the best resources out there(without going broke) that I can pick up right away to use in MAy. As we will no longer have home internet access I prefer to find offline resources, though a couple good online ones to look up on the library computers would be okay.
  16. Can I do this? My freshmen finished Physical Science last year and is presently finishing Biology this year. Both of these were using Apologia. But for her 10th grade year, before we hit Chemistry in 11th, we were thinking of doing something very different. Can we do a 1/2 semester of Astronomy and then follow with a 1/2 semester of Geology. She LOVES two. Just LOVES them. Even has thought about being a geologist. I have seen that AO has LifePacs for both of these. Not sure we would go that route. Still in the looking stage. (DD is my "Wiggly Willie" hands on learner, if you are familiar with Cathy Duffy's book. She is always crocheting, knitting, cooking, digging in the dirt....making something.....She has thought about Elem Education, Geologist, Nutritionist.....But we are still in that thinking stage....I could even see her design clothes for a theatre company.....) Just wondering about this..... Blessings, Brenda:001_smile:
  17. Besides observing, identifying and classifying rocks and minerals what can you do that's hands-on and engaging? I know we can make rock candy, but otherwise I'm sort of clueless. These activities need to be geared for the 4K-3rd grade crowd. I should also point out that I don't want to spend any money putting the activities together unless absolutely necessary!
  18. I guess I'm looking for what kind of paint to make a nice white square and a black number in the middle, but I'm not sure. I think we'll be picking up a whole heck of a lot of rocks this year, and I need to keep track of them. TIA
