      4. Write the reassessment in the last Science class on Tuesday or Wednesday.
  5. Predict your final grade


Plate Tectonics Review
  • Imagine molten magma pushing up on the tectonic plates of the Earth.  Scientists predict similar geological activity happens on other planets too!
May 25th & May 27th  - Lesson 5
  1. Rocks:
    1. Please do not remove them from the bins.

    2. Trenches
    3. Mountain Ranges
    4. Volcanoes
    5. Islands
    6. Earthquakes
  3. Optional: How and why do the plates move?
    1. Describe the energy changes that move the tectonic plates.
  4. Check your results for your Plate Boundaries Quiz

  5. Learn from past test mistakes:
    1. Go back to your blog post from the last test, the Water Test.
    2. Read the advice to yourself.  Here’s an example from JP’s blog.

Moving Plates & The Rock Cycles
  • Adjacent plates can either converge, diverge or run parallel.

Continents Move!  
  • The slow changes happen on Earth are so slow that we can’t see them in our lifetimes, or even in the timeline of our species.

  1. Plate Boundaries


Welcome to Geology!  
  • I believe that one of the most amazing things in the world is how it formed, how it changes and the pieces of evidence left behind for us to figure the mystery of those changes.
