  • September 24, 2012• Essential Question: What processes change rocks and the surface of Earth? S6E5c• Learning Target: I can describe how an earthquake can be a destructive or constructive force.• Start-Up: Define “earthquake" in your own words.• Agenda – Start-Up Activities – Vocabulary Development – Fault blocks – Ticket Out: Vocabulary Paper• Homework: Boundary Chart, Research Project due Thursday!!!
  • September 25, 2012• Essential Question: What processes change rocks and the surface of Earth? S6E5c• Learning Target: I can describe how new geographical features can form on Earth.• Start-Up: Make plate boundary “chart.” (Keep journal to Start-Up compare your chart to the displayed chart.)• Agenda: – Start-Up Activities – Quiz (Timed) – Complete Fault Block Activity/Note Packet – Homework: Earthquakes• Homework: Reading comprehension: Earthquakes
  • Sample Chart:Boundary Stress Fault Result (*)Transform Shear Strike-slip EarthquakesDivergent Tension Normal Mid-Ocean Ridge; Rift Valley; Sea- floor Spreading; VolcanoesConvergent Compression Reverse Mountains; Trenches; Subduction; Volcanoes* Each boundary has earthquakes
  • September 26, 2012• Essential Question: What processes change rocks and the surface of Earth? S6E5c• Learning Target: I can begin to explain the relationship between volcanoes and plate tectonics.• Start-Up: What scientific instrument do scientists use to measure earthquakes? (Keep your journals to check your answer.)• Agenda: – Start-Up Activities – Check over homework – Mountain/Earthquake/Volcano Notes – Homework: Volcano• Homework: Volcano Reading Comprehension
  • Answer• Scientist use an instrument called a seismograph that measure seismic waves. It creates a seismogram that helps seismologist to record the earthquake activity.
  • September 27, 2012• EQ: What processes change rocks and the surface of Earth? S6E5c• LT: I can explain the relationship between volcanoes and plate tectonics.• Start-Up: Define “volcano” in your own words.• Agenda: – Start-Up Activities – Note Packet: Mountains/Earthquakes/Volcanoes – Homework: Volcano• Homework: Review over packet; volcano anatomy
  • Sample Answer• Volcanoes are locations where molten rock reaches Earth’s surface.
  • September 28, 2012• EQ: What processes change rocks and the surface of Earth? S6E5c• LT: I can identify the anatomy of a volcano, as well as the types of eruptions and lava.•• Start-Up: How can volcanic eruptions cause a climate change?• Agenda: – Start-Up Activities – Complete Notes/Foldable – Volcano Project• Homework: Volcano Project (Due Friday—October 8)
  • Possible Answer• Ash clouds from volcanic eruptions can block sunlight, causing temperature to drop.
