Finished the video from 5-10-12. Great visuals of what the planet might look like in the future! Extra copies of the practice quiz were made available and 10 minutes to work on (see 5-9-12). Can you explain this diagram?

Watched the first 20 min of this NaGeo video on Colliding Continents and then students had time to access last year’s Plate Tectonics Quiz (see 5-9-12) and begin to review. Plate Tectonics Activity (see 5-1-12) is due no later than Monday.

Continued work on Plate Boundary Activity (see 5-1-12). Good site here for review of Plate Tectonics. Last year’s quiz is available here as a pdf. Expect additional questions on the interior of the earth (inner core, etc). Remember you can use pages 51, 52, and 57 on the quiz.

Nice overview of Plate Tectonics from a 100-level (Freshmen) class at Penn State!

Pd 2 – Computer Lab and TASA Plate Tectonics Activity

Pd 4/5 – Plate Boundary Activity (top 10 earthquakes and top 10 volcanoes)

Pd 9 – Complete Plate Tectonic notes and start Plate Boundary Activity

Can you name most of the plates?

Could this be how Plate Tectonics got started?

All students will begin working on “Plate Boundaries and Patterns of Activity.”  All of the websites and links on the activity (pdf) are found on this blog. Map and tables also.

Recent Earthquakes (1)

Volcanoes Erupting in 2011 (2)

Active Volcanoes and Plate Boundaries (3)

World Seismicity Maps (after Step 5) if this appears inactive try this one , choose the area and then search for the Seismicity Map of ____________ under Maps.
