Resource summary

skateboarding & the Science Connection
  1. Earth Science
    1. 8.E.3. Role of Water
      1. it talks about how with weather systems where most of the weather takes places on the troposphere.
        1. skateboarders would ride on top of the surface on flat surfaces
          1. Explain how sedimentary rock is formed (embedding plant and animal remains and leaving a record of the sequence in which plants and animals disappeared)
        2. Astronomy
          1. 8.D.2. Regular and Predictable Motion
            1. Identify and explain celestial phenomena using the regular and predictable motion of objects in the solar system
              1. it include the various phases of the Moon, meteor showers, comets, solar and lunar eclipses, planetary oppositions, conjunctions, and occultations.
                1. When a skateboarder goes on a halfpipe it makes a revolution around.
            2. Biology
              1. 8.D.1. Change Over Time
                1. Recognize and describe that evolutionary change in species over time occurs as a result of genetic variation in organisms and environmental changes.
                  1. It talks about of over a certain time things start to change into a different thing because of the environment changing ot because of a natural cause of genitics being mixed.
                    1. The way people use their bodies to maneuver the skateboard. It takes balance and coordination to properly control a skateboard. They use different ways of doing this. And it changes over time with people coming up with different things.
                2. Chemistry
                  1. 8.D.3. Chemical Reactions:
                    1. Provide evidence to support the fact that common substances have the ability to change into new substances.
                      1. how people can use wood to change into a wooden chair.
                        1. The wheels are usually made of polyurethane. The trucks are usually an aluminum alloy. There are other metals used.
                    2. Physics
                      1. 8.A.1. Motion:
                        1. Develop an explanation of motion using the relationships among time, distance, velocity and acceleration.
                          1. Once time has passed mountains tend to change because of weathering.
                            1. It takes physical reasoning to figure out how fast to go and how much time it takes to do a trick.The speed = distance /time knowledge is the math of skateboarding physics.
                        2. Thermodynamics
                          1. 8.B.2. Heat Transformations
                            1. Identify and explain that heat energy is a product of the conversion of one form of energy to another.
                              1. When heat is on your body the wind takes it away to make you cooler.
                                1. When a skateboarder is trying to attempt a trick it takes a lot of its energy to be able to succeed. Also with all the work sweat starts to be created.
                            2. Environmental Issues
                              1. 8.B.1. Environmental Impact
                                1. Recognize and explain how human activities can accelerate or magnify many naturally occurring changes.
                                  1. Skateboarding takes a lot of thinking and also it takes a lot of energy for you to actually complete it.
                                    1. We humas can help the world by using more natural things to change the world and help it. So that a lot of carbn dioxide isn't in the air so much.
