WARM-UP

What was the process we discussed for attributing or definging in class?

    1. List (brainstorm) characterisitics of the item.
    2. Narrow the characteristics to those characteristics shared by ALL of the specific item.
    3. Write a definition.
    4. Test your definition by looking at examples.
    5. If necessary, re-work your definition. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
3
Support this statement:
"The Earth really has only ONE ocean."

4
Attach the Inquiry Activity on Waterforms.
  • Create your own definitions based on the characteristics you observe from the attached map.
  • Using your knowledge, textbook, or parents, cite one example for each waterform listed.

QUESTIONS
ANSWERS
What are waterforms?
  • shapes and types of the water areas on the surface of the Earth
How is the Earth's water classified?

Where is the Earth's fresh water?

  • most is frozen in ice caps
  • rest is in lakes, rivers, and groundwater
What is "groundwater"?
