    Tectonics2 Tectonics2 Presentation Transcript

    • Plate Tectonics How Land Moves and Builds
    • 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
    • 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 .
    • Our Changing Earth So far, we have learned some ways the Earth changes naturally: Weathering Water Erosion Wind Erosion Extreme Weather
    • 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)
    • 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:
    • Core:
      • the solid rock, very hot center of the Earth
    • Mantle: the layer of hot rock beneath Earth’s surface
    • Crust:
      • the outside, hard layer of the Earth
    • Diagram
      • Draw the diagram in your notebook. Be sure to label the parts we learned.
    • Inside the Earth 1
    • Inside the Earth 2
    • 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?
    • 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
    • Magma:
      • melted rock found between the crust and mantle
    • Tectonic Plates:
      • massive pieces of rock under the land that fit together like a giant puzzle
    • Continental Drift:
      • when tectonic plates move, causing Earth’s continents to move with them
    • Plate Tectonics
    • Continental Drift
      • Check for Understanding
      • Discuss with your table group
      • On your note card, answer:
      • 2. What was Pangea?
    • Continental Drift
      • Check for Understanding
      • Discuss with your table group
      • On your note card, answer:
      • 3. What caused Pangea to break apart?
    • 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
    • Fault:
      • the place where two plates touch
    • Uplift:
      • when plates collide and one is pushed upward, creating a mountain
    • Folding:
      • when a plate is squished between other plates and pushes up to form a mountain
    • Mountains
    • 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
    • Lava:
      • when magma reaches the Earth’s surface
    • Volcano:
      • a mountain formed by cooled lava from Earth’s mantle
    • Volcanoes
    • Diagram
      • Draw the diagram in your notebook. Be sure to label the parts.
    •  
    • Earthquake:
      • when energy in the Earth causes plates to shift quickly
    • Epicenter:
      • the place where an earthquake began
    • Magnitude:
      • how powerful an earthquake is
    • Earthquakes
    • 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.
    • Magic School Bus - Volcanoes
    • Tsunami:
      • A huge wave caused by an underwater earthquake or volcano
    • Tsunamis
    • Volcanic Island:
      • An island created by the continual eruption of a volcano
    • Volcanic Islands
    • Types of Volcanoes
    • Review with Final Quiz
    • 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.
    • Exit Ticket
      • I will explain ______ ____________ theory including ________ , _________ and _____________ .
