-Students learn about a variety of current events regarding Human Impacts on Earth through a C.E.R. (Claim Evidence Reasoning) graphic organizer. This is great for scaffolding content, sub plan, independent work, homework, review or distance learning.

What Students do:

  • The students figure out what the “Claim” is in the article.
  • Students then use data that supports the claim in the “Evidence” section and draw visual evidence
  • Students then explain why the evidence supports the claim in the “Reasoning” section. 

-This resource gets your students to explain phenomena in a meaningful way and it allows you as the instructor to adequately assess their understanding of concepts.

-You also get 7 different generic templates used for any current events that apply to your content. Any time I see an interesting article that applies to what we are learning, I use these as my Go-To templates!

You get the following:

  • 7 CER Graphic Organizer Templates
  • Over 10 Human Impact articles (and growing) to print hard copies and/or web addresses for reading off of the computer
  • Keys
  • CER Teacher Tips
  • A link to use the graphic organizers in Google Classroom for Distance Learning in the Bonus File.
  • Google Classroom Tutorial in the Bonus File.

NGSS MS-ESS3 Earth and Human Activity

Analyze and interpret data on natural hazards to forecast future catastrophic events and inform the development of technologies to mitigate their effects. MS-ESS3-2

Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment. MS-ESS3-3 

Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems. MS-ESS3-4

ESS3.B:  Natural Hazards: Mapping the history of natural hazards in a region, combined with an understanding of related geologic forces can help forecast the locations and likelihoods of future events. (MS-ESS3-2)ESS3.C:  Human Impacts on Earth Systems: Human activities have significantly altered the biosphere, sometimes damaging or destroying natural habitats and causing the extinction of other species. But changes to Earth’s environments can have different impacts (negative and positive) for different living things. (MS-ESS3-3)Typically, as human populations and per-capita consumption of natural resources increase, so do the negative impacts on Earth unless the activities and technologies involved are engineered otherwise. (MS-ESS3-3), (MS-ESS3-4)
