Research and Information Fluency
Students apply digital tools gather, evaluate, and use information.
Locate, organize, analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and ethically use information from a variety of sources and media.
What causes sinkholes? Are they more common underwater or on land?
Essential Science and Engineering Practices
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how the uneven distributions of Earth's mineral, energy, and groundwater resources are the result of past and current geoscience processes.
1. Watch the video and look for clues of what is causing the sinkhole.
2. Position Statement Handout
3. Sinkhole Assessment Sheet
