Tectonics2

  1. 1. Plate Tectonics How Land Moves and Builds
  2. 2. Group Reading Anytime you see a word or phrase that Is colored your seating group’s color, Read aloud with your group. Red Blue Yellow Green Orange
  3. 3. Lesson Goal <ul><li>I will explain plate tectonic theory including uplift, volcanoes and earthquakes. I will demonstrate knowledge in my science notebook with definitions , illustrations , and question responses . </li></ul>
  4. 4. Our Changing Earth So far, we have learned some ways the Earth changes naturally: Weathering Water Erosion Wind Erosion Extreme Weather
  5. 5. Our Changing Earth This week, we will learn another way the Earth changes naturally: Plate Tectonics Let’s add this topic to our notebook (Don’t forget the Table of Contents)
  6. 6. Plate Tectonics <ul><li>Write Vocabulary under the title Plate Tectonics, where we will be adding some new words as go </li></ul>Let’s start with some new science words to add to our notebook:
  7. 7. Core: <ul><li>the solid rock, very hot center of the Earth </li></ul>
  8. 8. Mantle: the layer of hot rock beneath Earth’s surface
  9. 9. Crust: <ul><li>the outside, hard layer of the Earth </li></ul>
  10. 10. Diagram <ul><li>Draw the diagram in your notebook. Be sure to label the parts we learned. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Inside the Earth 1
  12. 12. Inside the Earth 2
  13. 13. Inside the Earth <ul><li>Check for Understanding </li></ul><ul><li>Discuss with your table group </li></ul><ul><li>On your note card, answer: </li></ul><ul><li>1. On which layer does erosion and weathering occur on Earth? </li></ul>
  14. 14. I wonder how Earth’s layers relate to plate tectonics? <ul><li>Notes </li></ul><ul><li>Earth’s crust is broken into pieces, which “float” on the mantle layer </li></ul><ul><li>These pieces, called plates, are always moving, but very slowly </li></ul><ul><li>The plates move apart, collide into one another, and slide against other plates </li></ul>We’re going to need more vocabulary words
  15. 15. Magma: <ul><li>melted rock found between the crust and mantle </li></ul>
  16. 16. Tectonic Plates: <ul><li>massive pieces of rock under the land that fit together like a giant puzzle </li></ul>
