Book F:  Inside the Restless Earth
Chapter 4:  Plate Tectonics
   Lesson 1:  Inside the Earth 
In this chapter, students will study how geologic processes inside Earth work to shape the surface of Earth.  In Lesson 1, students will investigate the different layers inside the Earth and classify these layers according to physical and chemical characteristics.  Students will also learn how scientists study the interior of Earth using seismic waves.  The speed of these energetic mechanical waves is affected by the density of the material the wave is moving through.  Students will uncover the connection between the speed of the waves and the density of the material the wave is moving through, providing evidence of the different layers found in the interior of Earth.
1.  What are the different layers of Earth's interior?
2.  How are interior layers of Earth classified?
3.  What is a tectonic plate?
4.  How do scientists study Earth's interior?
The summative assessment over F4 Lesson 1 is scheduled for Wednesday December 19th.
