Surface Features & Processes

5th Grade

Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): S5E1.a.

Identify surface features caused by constructive processes.
  • Deposition (Deltas, sand dunes, etc.)
  • Earthquakes
  • Volcanoes
  • Faults

Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): S5E1.b.

Identify and find examples of surface features caused by destructive processes.
  • Erosion (water—rivers and oceans, wind)
  • Weathering
  • Impact of organisms
  • Earthquake
  • Volcano

Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): S5E1.c.

Relate the role of technology and human intervention in the control of constructive and destructive processes. Examples include, but are not limited to
  • Seismological studies,
  • Flood control, (dams, levees, storm drain management, etc.)
  • Beach reclamation (Georgia coastal islands)

Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): S5E1.a

Construct an argument supported by scientific evidence to identify surface features (examples could include deltas, sand dunes, mountains, volcanoes) as being caused by constructive and/or destructive processes (examples could include deposition, weathering, erosion, and impact of organisms).

Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): S5E1.b

Develop simple interactive models to collect data that illustrate how changes in surface features are/were caused by constructive and/or destructive processes.

Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): S5E1.c

Ask questions to obtain information on how technology is used to limit and/or predict the impact of constructive and destructive processes.
(Clarification statement: Examples could include seismological studies, flood forecasting (GIS maps), engineering/construction methods and materials, and infrared/satellite imagery.)
