Lesson 1: Introduction to Glaciers and the North American Ice Age (time allotment- 1 day)
- You will be completing a worksheet from viewing an Interactive PowerPoint on Glaciers/Ice Age and a more detailed video on Glaciers, which you will see afterwards. The
Glacier Multimedia Presentations Worksheet

can be printed off from this link .

You will open the Interactive PowerPoint on Glaciers/Ice Age and Glaciers by clicking on the URLs listed below. Each website has controls so you can stop or review the presentation.
1. Glaciers and the Ice Age Interactive PowerPoint: http://urbanext.illinois.edu/earth/42.cfm?ID=42 *Note: This activity involves how glaciers shaped and changed the state of Illinois. However, if you remember when we went over how the Michigan Basin formed, this structure involved parts of all the states and parts of Canada bordering Michigan. Therefore, the glacial history of both states have a lot of similarities, even though there are some differences. After watching this presentation, close the screen and reconnect to this Wiki-space page to watch the next video.

2 a..Glaciers video http://learner.org/vod/vod_window.html?pid=334 You might have to click the Allow Pop-Ups to Appear window if the video does not load and you might have to scroll down to video 23 Glaciers and click the small box with the letters VoD (videos on demand button) to start the video. *Make sure you try to open this in class so you will be familar with operating this site. You to only watch the first 19 minutes of this video to complete the worksheet, so keep an eye on the time counter on the screen. However, you are welcome to watch the last 8 minutes if you finish early.
b. When working on the Alpine Glacier term worksheet (which will be handed out in class), besides using your book for terms, using the following PowerPoint because it shows an actual picture with its topographic analog or representation. http://www4.uwsp.edu/geo/faculty/lemke/alpine_glacial_glossary/landforms/paternosterlakes.html



3. Homework
a) After you have finished and turned in your Glacier Multimedia Presentations Worksheet, print off the second sheet from Glacial Lakes Flip Book pdf after you open it. Label the pictures 1 through 6, with 1 being the oldest glacial representation in Michigan and 6 being the youngest. Cut them out and stack them in the order of 6 to 1. Hold a corner of the stack with one hand and flip (bend and release) the cards from the opposite corner from your holding hand, observing what happens. Reverse the stack order next to 1 to 6 and repeat the same process.

b) Click the Discussion button at the top of the page. After it opens, click the New Post button. Type in the Subject box the word "Glaciers" and answer the question below in the message box using complete sentences. Reread your answer to make sure it makes sense and check for spelling, before you click the Post button.
Homework Discussion Question: What order of cards represented a glacial retreat and glacial advance? Do glaciers move back and forth, or only in one direction? Explain how this activity simulates the Great Lakes original formation and how it might of influenced landforms you see around Roscommon today.
Explain your answer thoroughly. *After watching both these compacted presentations, I hope you have firn understanding how glaciers develop and later move. If you understand the gravity of this, you should be able to icely answer this question.

Lesson 2: Glacial Landforms in Michigan from a Roscommon County Perspective (time allotment- 1 day)

1. We will being going over a Powerpoint on Glacial Landforms in Michigan: A Roscommon Prospective as a class today. Here is a link to it so you can refer to it if need be when you are doing your homework tonight.


2. You will be completing a worksheet called "The Glacial Features of Roscommon County" using information from the PowerPoint and the web. The following link will get you to that worksheet:

a) Following the directions on the worksheet. You will be using this website
http://websoilsurvey.nrcs.usda.gov/app/WebSoilSurvey.aspx to provide you clues on how to draw out roads and surface features like cities, streams, rivers, and lakes out on the map. Then you will make a key for abbreviations you will use to label the various locations on you Glacial Landform Map Of Roscommon County, which were shown in the PowerPoint. The MapQuest site http://www.mapquest.com/maps?traffic=1&city=Roscommon&state=MIcould also assist you with more specific geographic information.
b) You will also need to use these websites to help you define varoius landforms specifically. Write information down in your own words-no copying and pasting information.
. http://www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/Glacial_landforms
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glacier http://www.physicalgeography.net/fundamentals/10af.html

http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2004/1216/index.html
c) The The Glacial Features of Roscommon County worksheet is due tomorrow and you will be able to get started on it in class today. On the assignment you will have to name three other locations you know of in the county that could landmark a glacier feature, based on knowing now what structural features to look for. Please also post them on the Discussion board under the subject “Glacial Landforms in Roscommon” . *If you can take a digital picture of it (for example a glacial erratic by your house, gravel pit, kettle, etc..) post it on the Discussion board under the Subject: “Glacial Landforms in Roscommon” and explain what it is- you will earn extra credit. When you take the photo have something in the picture to show a reference to scale. This can be done anytime in the up coming week.

Lesson 3: Soil Science Background Investigation-Pixel Style (time allotment- 1 day)


You will be watching these short videos on soil to develop background knowledge on it so when we go outside tomorrow to really get our hands dirty, you will understand what you are observing. There are control tools associated with each video so you can stop or start it at your own pace to write down information needed. On a blank sheet of white paper, give it the title Soil Video Activities and write your name on it. Complete the short activities by writing down on this sheet to whatever is requested below that video shown below. So for the first activity, Chef's Challenge, write down 1. Chef's Challenge and complete the task that is requested below that point. Do the same for each video.

1. Chef's Challenge: http://forces.si.edu/soils/video/chefs_challenge.html
- Draw out a flowchart using arrows and words how the chefs changed sand into two different soil types- a histosol and spodosol. Answer this question afterwards, what type do you think we have the most of in Roscommon? Justify your answer.
2. Matters of Life and Death-SSI "Soil Science Investigators: http://forces.si.edu/soils/video/mold.html
-Take some notes on what are microbes and how they were used in the investigation, the differences in marsh and upland forest soils, how fungi help trees grow, and the fauna that live in soils because you are going to have to write a summary paragraph about what you learned about soil from viewing this short spoof..
3. Soil Formation(Soil Profiles): http://www.hippocampus.org/course_locator?course=AP%20Environmental%20Science&lesson=51&topic=1&width=800&height=550&topicTitle=Soil%20Profile&skinPath=http://www.hippocampus.org/hippocampus.skins/default
-You will be drawing out a crossection of a soil profile and labeling it (just like it is shown in the video), along with providng one fact for each horizon.
4. Soil Texture: http://www.hippocampus.org/Environmental%20Science will get you to the videos website and then you have to scoll down in the Environmental Science box and under the heading Soils, then select Soil Texture bar
- Compareand contrast the meaning and difference between between thr terms porosity and permability. The lab exercise they show here will be doing with soil samples we collect tomorrow in a couple days.
5. Soil Organisms: If you finish early, go to this website http://www.agron.iastate.edu/~loynachan/mov/ . It has a collection of short soil videos dealing with soil organisms. Watch the Soil Food Chain video first so you get an appreciation how many different types animals (fauna) live in soil. Watch the individual organisms video of your choice, write down the group name of the organisms that you watched and list two facts that you learned about that group of animals. Make sure you checkout the earthworms, nematodes, and fungi because they have been previously mentioned in other videos today. Hand you activity sheet in at the end of the hour.

Lesson 4: Digging Science- To Get A Better Field or Feel Experience of Profiling Soil (time allotment - 2 days)
Day 1: Field Activity
- We are going out into the field today to dig holes in a non-forested area disrupted by some type of construction activity in the past and a forested area on the moraine our school is located on to check out their soil profiles. You will also collect soil samples from each area, which your lab group will suspend in a graduated cylinder filled with water when we get back so your group can determine its texture like you saw on the video yesterday after it settles for 24 hours. So each person bring their lab notebook to sketch the soil profiles we see and measure. Each group needs to grab two sample soil bags and a garden trowl to collect samples. If time permits, we will also visit some glacial erractics and kettles on the school property too.
Day 2: Soil Texture Lab
- Perform the Soil Texture Lab. You may get a copy from this link:
- After you are done with your lab clean up your area and finish your labsheet data analysis question. When you are completed with this turn your lab in and pick up your homework on Soil Formation. It may be obtained form this link:

Lesson 5: Glacier Leaves, Tree Leaves-Soilfully, They Are All Connected. (time allotment - 2 days)
Day 1: Tree Background-You Be The Teacher!
- You are going to watch an interactive video/PowerPoint on Exploring the Secret Life of Trees. You will have the same type of control operations in this multi-media as before. You need to be writing down facts as you are viewing this source so you can construct a video worksheet for it. Your questioning has to be spread out evenly so it reflects the educational content of the entire presentation. You will have to generate 15 questions in a format of your choice-short answer, fill-in the blank, multiple choice, matching, or any combination of these. This will have to be typed with each question posed, filled with an answer in parentheses and sent to me as an attachment to at schepkec@ghsd.net by Monday. Have your name on it along with an appropriate title. The link for the presentation is below.
Exploring the Secret Life of Trees: http://urbanext.illinois.edu/trees2/index2.html

Day 2: The Moraine a Tree Grows, So What Kame Before, Influences What Grows Now (Field Activity)
- We are going to learn how to identify trees by using a dichtomous keys to survey the types of trees growing on our school's glacial landform. Below is the link for the dichtomous tree identification key.
This link here has the Field Survey of Tree Types Growing Around Sampled Soil Profiles Worksheet
that you will be filling out in the filed today and turning at the end of class or by tomorrow if you don't finish.



Overall Unit Assessment
- I am going to give you a final assessment grade on this unit based on a PowerPoint you make showing the evolutionary (change overtime) connection betweween glaciers, soil, and trees (forest diversity). Revisit the second to last slide in the Glacial Landforms in Michigan: A Roscommon Prospective PowerPoint presentation comparing the Higgins Lake Watershed Tree Map with the Roscommon Glacial Landform Map to get a clearer picture of this connection. In geology, the only tool with have to connect the past to the present is the Principle of Uniformitarianism-processses that happen today, happened the same way they did in the past. Below is the link to the requirements and grading rubric for this PowerPoint presentation.

Wow, Glacial Geology Is Really COOL !!!!!!!!

2. Molecular (Covalent) Compounds:
The basic rules://
  • The naming system is for compounds composed of two nonmetallic elements.
  • The first element keeps its name
  • The first element gets a prefix if it has a subscript in the formula (the prefix mono is not used)
  • The second element gets the –ide suffix (ending)
  • The second element ALWAYS gets a prefix

1. Practice; Complete 8 problems showing all math work fully with units from the website: http://science.widener.edu/svb/tutorial/combinedgascsn7.html in this order:

a) The values and their conditions. example: P1= V1 = T1 = P2= V2= T2= Make sure all P's and V's are in the same unit.
Remember in pressure : 1 atm=760 mm of Hg = 760 torr = 101.325 kPa = 14.7 psi In volume 1L =1000ml = 1000cc (cubic centimeters)

b) Set up the variables in the correct combinations to solve for the unknown and plug in the values with units.
Example:

c) Think to yourself, does my answer make sense? In the example above change in pressure was a lot greater than the change in temperature, therefore influenced volume more. Since P2 went down V2 went up compared to V1.



Background Resources for the National Superconducting Cyclotron Field Trip at MSU on May 4th 2015

Welcome. Please feel free to view these resources to make your field experience at the NSCL more enriching.


in flight beamline

1. MSU NSCL Facility
Overview video of MSU NSCL and what its research mission: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqgntpqVWbs
There is a virtual tour site with short videos with various scientists explaining the various aspects of the cyclotorn operation http://nscl.msu.edu/public/virtual-tour.html, however they are short explanations without graphics.

2.Cyclotron Physics and Engineering
A video series of a cyclotron that is located in Canada and is geared for high school students with two years of high school physics.
Please watch the first overview video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qwj1eqshyVw&list=PL0FCEFD501F90217C .
*Even though the research purpose of this facility is different from the MSU and they use a light-weight hydrogen ion source, the physics of how a cyclotron work are illustrated better and mimic what we will see at the MSU NSCL facility. The graphics with this video(s) will allow you to visualize how a cyclotron operates more clearly than the MSU video series.
*There is a series of videos that follow that are 2-7 minutes long that will get more into the specifics of a typical cyclotron operation, focusing certain key stages of the instruments operation and the engineering designs that allows scientists to control and guide plasma (charge particle) beam to collide with a target source. Like a cadmium control rod in a fission reactor, how much you absorb will be directly proportional to how far you travel in or reactor to this background information. I hope this video series causes less fusion on the subject matter . Be an ion, take charge of your learning! Beta learn now than alpha the fact. Get your gamma on, photonically speaking! If you don't know what I am saying , watch some of the nuclear chemistry videos in #3.

3. Nuclear Chemistry: *The Chart of Nuclides pictured below is available for purchase at MSU's NSCL for $10.
a) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWAsz59F8gA and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FU6y1XIADdg "crash course -the basics "

b) Hewitt Radioactivity series: Watch the video segment on the "Strong Force" ** https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlDJw9zx-I0&list=PLT3Z9v9eYk1nQhzHWSXvFc1vGpFeTxCme&index=3
external image s3.460.gif external image radiation.gif
c) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7WTQD2xYtQ Animated presentation of radioactivity.

d) General Atomic video on fusion and a Tomak fusion reactor-well done segment on illustrating the nuclear strong force and the overall nuclear fusion concept. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORWrsH2X2ZI
  • Contrasts chemical reaction with nuclear reactions and basic plasma physics. Highly suggested video to watch.
external image NSCL-09-2.jpg?1383117038


4.. Superconductance/Magnetism In depth but entertaining videos. If you are guassian facts about magnetism, these videos put a nu spin on magnetism, especially if this is not your field. It gets into the domain things about magnetism. You dont' have to be at -190 degrees C to find these videos a levitating experience.
a) Superconductance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4XEQVnIFmQ "Meissner effect"
b) Magnetism: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFAOXdXZ5TM

Protein Synthesis (7th Grade)
1. DNA coded into mRNA inside the nucleus is called transcription. In this activitiy nitrogen bases are called nucleotides. In the cytoplasm, the mRNA that left the nucleus is read (translated) by the ribosome with the assistance of tRNA, coded amino acids are transfered and bonded into an amino acid chain known as a protein. Three nitrogen bases (nucleotides) at a time code for a specific amino acid. This 3-nitorgen base code for amino acids is known as a codon. There are also start codons AUG (Meth or methionine) that are in a mRNA to tRNA sequence that tells the ribosome to start reading or translating amino acids in that spot. There are also stop codons ( UAA, UAG, UGA) to tell the ribosome and tRNA to stop the amino acid sequence. You will construct 5 to 10 proteins listing the tRNA nitrogen base sequence that codes for them and the amino acids they sequence. You will draw a circle on the start codon and a hexagon on the stop codon on the tRNA sequence.
