Volcanoes webquest w/plate tectonicsQuick View

Volcanoes webquest w/plate tectonics

Webquest on volcanoes using websites on the paper. Students look up what a volcano is, how they are created, the main types of volcanoes, they do a simulation online with a volcano that lets them change how big the eruption will be. They look up the power of a volcano when compare to a nuclear bomb. It also introduces plate tectonics and their role in the formation of volcanoes. Worked well in my 6th grade science classes. Time it took the students varied from 45min-70min 2 pages, does not include an answer key

An Interactive Science Inquiry Plate Tectonics IB PYPQuick View

An Interactive Science Inquiry Plate Tectonics IB PYP

Take the children to the centre of the Earth! Be the Miss Frizz of your classroom with this IB PYP inquiry. How the World Works: The Earth’s surface is constantly moving and changing through processes and forces. This is a mini unit about the amazing moving and shaking of our Earth’s surface as we explore the science behind plate tectonics and how the processes under the Earth lead to the movement and changing of our world as we know it. Go back 200 million years and explore Pangaea and make the connections between the world then and now..With over 60 pages of interactive, foldables, flippables, hands on , engaging, inquiry based activities, this transdisciplinary unit will take you through math, critical thinking, writing, geography, reading for information and, of course, science. UK & USA spelling included. Lines of inquiry include: How is the Earth structured? How is the Earth’s crust formed? How does our world today connect with the supercontinents? How does the Earth’s crust move and separate? Learning how to read clues from artefacts and also from evidence in the text, helped us to become incredible geologists as we had to figure out the answers to our lines of inquiry. This involved a lot of reading for information, analysing text and recognising non fiction text features. Through explorations within math, reading, writing, geography and history, the children gather knowledge of how plate tectonics contribute to how our world is shaped today. This mini unit can be found within my complete unit of inquiry that delves further into landforms and natural disasters as well: Earth’s Structures and Landforms, found in my store and on my blog. If you enjoy this complete unit of inquiry, you may also like my others: Ancient Civilizations, Rainforests and Food Chains, Adaptations of Living Things, Exploring Poetry, Exploring Explorers and many more found in my store.

Introduction or review of plate tectonics web quest.

I have used this webquest as an introduction to plate tectonics with my 6th grade classes, it can also be used as a review or for reinforcement. Students will be looking up the answers about the crust of the earth. Draw, define, and give examples of the 3 different plate boundaries. Answer questions about how plate tectonics can create earthquakes and tsunamis. There is also an interactive game students play at the end about plate tectonics. 2 pages, no answer key included, took my 6th graders about 60 minutes to complete

Reuniting Pangaea- Continental Drift LessonQuick View

Reuniting Pangaea- Continental Drift Lesson

In this 2 part-lesson, students will collect data on fossil evidence and create their own landmass map with various colors to represent the locations of fossil discoveries. Then, they will cut out the landmasses and reassemble them logically to create a giant supercontinent (Pangaea). Students will share their decision and reasoning on the evidence with their group or partner, along with answering 4 conclusion questions. The teacher will post the correct landmass model key and students will glue their Pangaea into their science notebook. On Day 2, the teacher will read a passage on Alfred Wegener. Students will receive 10 sentence strips from the teacher and will use context clues to sequence the strips to create a timeline representing the historical development of the plate tectonic theory. At this point, the class can have a gallery walk and discuss the event sequence (optional). The lesson will conclude with students answering conclusion questions over the 2-day lesson and writing a summary in their science notebook describing the historical evidence that supports the plate tectonic theory.

Mapping Earthquakes to Save the WorldQuick View

Mapping Earthquakes to Save the World

In the Mapping Earthquakes to Save the World activity, students leverage real-time data to plot earthquakes on a world map. The fate of the world is in their hands – the President of the United States has asked for their help to save humankind. Students identify patterns in their data and connect earthquakes with tectonic plates, making recommendations back to the President about where people are safe and where people are most at risk. This activity was heavily inspired by a project from the Stevens Institute for Technology Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education. Topics addressed: Plate tectonics and earthquakes GPS coordinates Primary CT concept: pattern recognition. Students are finding real-world, raw data and visualizing it geographically, then looking for trends and patterns in that data to draw conclusions about where and why earthquakes are happening and are likely to happen again. Students will be able to: Develop a hypothesis about what causes earthquakes and collect data to evaluate their hypothesis Plot points on a world map using GPS coordinates Recognize geographic patterns on a map and relate them to tectonic plate boundaries Compose a persuasive letter explaining their findings using scientific reasoning and citing data Prep: Sync with your students’ math teacher(s) to understand your students’ experience to date with the Cartesian coordinate plane, so you can appropriately frame GPS coordinates for them Print the tectonic plate overlay on vellum paper or transparency film that is designed for your printer (laser or inkjet). In a pinch, printing it on relatively low-weight normal white paper will work as well – students will just have to hold their papers up to the light to see through. Suggested lesson breakdown: This lesson can be run within a single class period, or can easily be split over two days. 10min – introduction of the project 5min – students form hypotheses 10min – how to plot with GPS coordinates 15-20min – students plot earthquakes from live GPS data 5-10min – students plot earthquakes from live map data 5min – students compare their maps with tectonic plate overlays 10min – full class discussion on findings 30-45min – students write letters on their findings to the President For further information and relevant standards, please visit http://ct.excelwa.org/science/mapping-earthquakes-to-save-the-world/
