Book F: Inside the Restless Earth
Chapter 4: Plate Tectonics
Lesson 3: Theory of Plate Tectonics
.In this lesson, students will examine tectonic plate movement and discover how tectonic plates interact and create plate boundaries. Depending on the movement of the tectonic plate, different geologic features form as a result of the interaction. Students will identify 3 different plate boundaries - convergent, divergent and transform - as well as 3 subgroups of convergent boundaries. Students will also connect forces back to plate movement and identify the forces responsible for tectonic plate movement.
1. What are the three main types of plate boundaries?
2. What forces are present at plate boundaries?
3. How do tectonic plates move?
Lesson 4: Deforming the Earth's Crust
This lesson explores the effecrts of tectonic forces on the Earth's crust. Students will learn how stress on rock causes it to fold and fault in different ways. This lesson also explores mountain formation and students will discover the different forces that create different types of mountains. Students will connect forces back to the different types of folds, faults and mountains, and students will use models to better understand the different types of faults.
Students will review and analyze photographs of rock folds and mountains ranges in class throughout this lesson. Students will practice this skill in class, identifying the specific rock deformation, the plate boundary where the and the force responsible for the deformation.
The SUMMATIVE assessment will cover information from Lessons 3 and 4 and is scheduled for Wed 2/20 and Thurs 2/21. The test will be administered over 2 days. Day One of the summative is paper / pencil. On Day Two, students will be evaluated on their ability to identify photographs of rockfolds and mountains-indicating the plate boundary, force required, and name of the deformation.
The downloads section of my teacher page will have all class notes and practice photographs to prepare for the Photo ID portion of the summative.
1. What are the two types of stresses that can deform rocks?
2. What is the difference between a fold and a fault?
3. What are the three main types of folds?
4. What are the three types of faults?
5. How are the three main types of mountains formed?
We will begin a new unit on Friday - Weather and Climate. Students will receive a new book - Book I. We are starting with Chapter 1, Lesson 1 Chapter 1: The Atmosphere Lesson 1: Characteristics of the Atmosphere
