MS-ESS2-2 How'd These Boulders Get Here?
Students will use their understanding of how geoscience processes have changed Earth's surface at varying time and spatial scales, especially how the movement of water has shaped Earth's surface, by constructing explanations about the cause and effect of glacial dams, failures around Lake Tahoe, and the deposition of huge boulders around the Reno area, using multiple sources or evidence consistent with scientific ideas, principles, and theories.
|This task was developed by Virginia Chandler in collaboration with Joel Scheingross at the University of Nevada, Reno.
