Lesson Plan - Explained in detail Blue - Class Management Strategies Pink - Assessment Techniques Green - Questioning Red - Areas where Differentiation is possible Pupils line up outside the classroom Silence while I tell the pupils that their starter activity is on the board that they are to come in silently and begin. They are to put their hand up when they are finished. Written on board The questions we shall answer in today's lesson are What is weathering? What is erosion? What are the three different types of weathering? What type of weathering is acid rain? What does a rock most affected by acid rain contain? Which rock is least affected by acid rain? Starter activity to read in silence pages 98-99 (Book Eureka 2G) Brief Question and Answer Session Which of the questions written on the board can we now answer after reading pages 98 & 99? Teacher Explanation of Weathering and Erosion Stress not strictly caused by the weather as the name suggests! We cause weathering, as do plants and trees. State strongly that weathering and erosion are different and the difference between them. ...read more.


Acetate Rain water is naturally slightly acidic. Carbon dioxide from the air dissolves into the rain water turning it slightly naturally acidic. Carbon dioxide + water = carbonic acid Fossil fuels contain sulphur, when they are burned they produce sulphur dioxide. When sulphur is burnt in air this happens! Sulphur + oxygen = sulphur dioxide Sulphur dioxide is acidic! Sulphur dioxide dissolves into rain water to produce an acid called sulphuric acid this very acidic! Rocks containing calcium carbonate will be weathered most quickly by acid rain because the carbonate reacts with the acid in the rain Fast finishers to read about consequences of acid rain on page 45. Class Practical Gain class attention Count to three, eyes and ears on me! Praise those as they begin to pay attention with each number counted down - one - well done girls thank you, Two - good back row, Three! Tell this background story for the experiment: It is the year 3000 & rain water has become extremely acidic due to all the fossil fuels being burnt! Houses are being weathered away by the second; this has major implications for the economy of Britain "ask what economy is". ...read more.


Some of the words children will be tested on placed on OHT a few minutes to revise while I check the homework's - those who have not completed the homework will be asked to stay behind after this lesson and complete. (BREAK-TIME) White board Questions What type of weathering is acid rain? Rain water is naturally acidic, what dissolves into rain water to produce this slight acidity? What dissolves into rain water to cause acid rain? Which rock would be best to build houses out of in order to withstand the affects of acid rain? Which rock would you not want to build houses out of with consideration to acid rain? What do the rocks which react most readily with acid rain contain? (slightly harder question) What is this a definition of - Wearing away of rock by a physical or chemical process - Wearing away of rock while it is being transported Dismissal of Class Stand behind benches ask Vicky, Lee, Jamie and Danny to check the sinks - which row will be the first to go? Dismiss rows in the order in which they became silent first. ...read more.

    The experimental errors in this experiment can be that the multimeters weren't accurate. Another error can be the wires, depending on the wires it gives different resistance. It can be also that the wires are not straight. To improve the accuracy of the experiment is that , using more sensitive and accurate multimeters.

    Flotation is the process of crushing impure rocks and then separating the ore from the impurities in order to gain the rich metals. It is used in industry often. In schools and laboratories where there is not access to froth flotation, the ore is concentrated by heating it.

  1. Acid Rain

    The acid in the acid rain comes from two kinds of air pollutants, sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxide (NO x). About 2/3 of all SO2 and 1/4 of all NOx comes from electric power generation that relies on burning fossil fuels like coal.

  2. Acids, water and oxygen can all weather rocks. They break down the rocks by ...

    Particles may be atoms, ions or molecules. There is a minimum amount of energy which colliding particles need in order to react with each other. If the colliding particles have less than this minimum energy, then they just bounce off each other and no reaction occurs.

  1. To find out what effects the weathering of the limestone building.

    The reason why it takes long to react with the large chunks is because it is big and has a big surface area which mean longer time for the acids to react with the chunks, with the small chunks it will be fats because there is a small surface area

  2. The Erosion of Marble

    sure that there are no weird answers we will repeat each experiment twice and take the average of each of the two results. List of Apparatus > Weighing Scale > Measuring cylinder > Beaker > Safety Goggles > Stopwatch List of Chemicals > Hydrochloric Acid, HCl(aq)

  1. A Investigation into the Rate of Chemical Weathering of Marble

    The only scale that can be used is small/medium/large and this is highly inaccurate because one person's opinion may be different from another and the marble chips available are generally very similar sizes, there is only a few millimetres difference between 'small' and 'large'.

  2. An Investigation of the weathering of limestone.

    All the time we will start the stopwatch from the first bubble and stop it when we get to 25mils of carbon dioxide in the measuring cylinder. We will also use the same units of time each time and measure time to the nearest tenth of a second, and we
