  • 4. 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
