Transcript

  • 1. Title Quake City Activity 1 Apartment A teaching sequence from the Hollywood unit
  • 2. Objectives <ul><li>To model the structure of the Earth to investigate where earthquakes may occur. </li></ul><ul><li>Explain what causes earthquakes and identify where they can happen. </li></ul>OBJECTIVES
  • 3. Sequence Engage (optional) Great to see you cousin! Welcome to Hollywood. You are going to love spending your gap year here... Hollywood, San Fran, hanging out with all the stars!
  • 4. Engage (narrative) Take a look at the details. It has TWO bedrooms so you could lodge with me! What do you think? SS1 I’ve found this apartment – great location, and cheap too.
  • 5. Elicit (narrative) All those safety features really worry me. What do YOU think? Why does it need earthquake protection? I do NOT want to invest my money in a property that might collapse. discuss
  • 6. Elicit (info) The books say that the Earth is formed from different layers but that doesn’t tell me anything. I can see no difference between here in Hollywood and back home in the UK. crust inner core outer core mantle
  • 7. Elicit (task) I need you to find out more. Try the exhibition at the Science Centre... SS2–6
  • 8. Explore (narrative) Welcome to our latest interactive exhibition .
  • 9. Explain (info) The Earth’s crust and upper part of the mantle are thought to consist of large pieces called tectonic plates.
  • 10. Explain (info) Scientists believe that there are convection currents within the mantle. The mantle is mostly solid but is able to move slowly.
  • 11. Explain (info) The plates move relative to each other at a few cm each year. San Andreas Fault, California It is thought that the convection currents cause this.
  • 12. Explain (info) The edges of the plates are called plate boundaries . At some plate boundaries the plates try to slide past each other. The location of earthquakes in the last 30 years.
  • 13. Explain (info) The plates are moving against each other all the time but they cannot slide because of friction. The energy gets stored . An earthquake happens when this movement energy finally overcomes the friction and all the stored energy is released at once in a sudden movement. The edges of the plates are rough, like sandpaper.
  • 14. Evaluate (task) What do you think – SS7 should I go ahead with the apartment?
  • 15. For more samples and course information www.upd8.org.uk/upd8-segue
