Transcript

  • 1. Plate Tectonics How Land Moves and Builds
  • 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. Lesson Goal
    • 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 .
  • 4. Our Changing Earth So far, we have learned some ways the Earth changes naturally: Weathering Water Erosion Wind Erosion Extreme Weather
  • 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. Plate Tectonics
    • Write Vocabulary under the title Plate Tectonics, where we will be adding some new words as go
    Let’s start with some new science words to add to our notebook:
  • 7. Core:
    • the solid rock, very hot center of the Earth
  • 8. Mantle: the layer of hot rock beneath Earth’s surface
  • 9. Crust:
    • the outside, hard layer of the Earth
  • 10. Diagram
    • Draw the diagram in your notebook. Be sure to label the parts we learned.
  • 11. Inside the Earth 1
  • 12. Inside the Earth 2
  • 13. Inside the Earth
    • Check for Understanding
    • Discuss with your table group
    • On your note card, answer:
    • 1. On which layer does erosion and weathering occur on Earth?
  • 14. I wonder how Earth’s layers relate to plate tectonics?
    • Notes
    • Earth’s crust is broken into pieces, which “float” on the mantle layer
    • These pieces, called plates, are always moving, but very slowly
    • The plates move apart, collide into one another, and slide against other plates
    We’re going to need more vocabulary words
  • 15. Magma:
    • melted rock found between the crust and mantle
  • 16. Tectonic Plates:
    • massive pieces of rock under the land that fit together like a giant puzzle
  • 17. Continental Drift:
    • when tectonic plates move, causing Earth’s continents to move with them
  • 18. Plate Tectonics
  • 19. Continental Drift
    • Check for Understanding
    • Discuss with your table group
    • On your note card, answer:
    • 2. What was Pangea?
  • 20. Continental Drift
    • Check for Understanding
    • Discuss with your table group
    • On your note card, answer:
    • 3. What caused Pangea to break apart?
  • 21. I wonder why this is important to Earth’s surface?
    • Notes
    • When tectonic plates collide, it creates mountains and volcanoes
    • When tectonic plates move apart, ocean valleys are made
    • When tectonic plates slide against each other, earthquakes happen
    We’re going to need more vocabulary words
  • 22. Fault:
    • the place where two plates touch
  • 23. Uplift:
    • when plates collide and one is pushed upward, creating a mountain
  • 24. Folding:
    • when a plate is squished between other plates and pushes up to form a mountain
  • 25. Mountains
  • 26. Inside the Earth
    • Check for Understanding
    • Discuss with your table group
    • On your note card, answer:
    • 4. Name two ways mountains are created with plate tectonics
  • 27. Lava:
    • when magma reaches the Earth’s surface
  • 28. Volcano:
    • a mountain formed by cooled lava from Earth’s mantle
  • 29. Volcanoes
  • 30. Diagram
    • Draw the diagram in your notebook. Be sure to label the parts.
  • 31.  
  • 32. Earthquake:
    • when energy in the Earth causes plates to shift quickly
  • 33. Epicenter:
    • the place where an earthquake began
  • 34. Magnitude:
    • how powerful an earthquake is
  • 35. Earthquakes
  • 36. Plate Tectonics
    • Check for Understanding
    • Discuss with your table group
    • On your note card, answer:
    • 5. Name 3 ways plate tectonics creates landforms on Earth.
  • 37. Magic School Bus - Volcanoes
  • 38. Tsunami:
    • A huge wave caused by an underwater earthquake or volcano
  • 39. Tsunamis
  • 40. Volcanic Island:
    • An island created by the continual eruption of a volcano
  • 41. Volcanic Islands
  • 42. Types of Volcanoes
  • 43. Review with Final Quiz
  • 44. Lesson Goal
    • 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.
  • 45. Exit Ticket
    • I will explain ______ ____________ theory including ________ , _________ and _____________ .
