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!!!
  • 2. 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
  • 3. 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
  • 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
  • 5. Answer• Scientist use an instrument called a seismograph that measure seismic waves. It creates a seismogram that helps seismologist to record the earthquake activity.
