Transcript of Geology

The big questions..... How long is a long time? This is our planet: Rock of the Day Ways to Identify a rock:
- texture
- color
- streak
- luster (shine)
- granule size
- weight Starting with the earth: What is the earth made of? Why Convection Matters: The Story of the Earth as Told Through Rock Geology- the science that deals with the earth's physical structure and substance, its history, and the processes that act on it. Plate Tectonics- a theory in geology; the lithosphere of the earth is divided into a small number of plates which float and travel independently over the mantel. Fossil Rock Anthem Continental Drift- the gradual movement of the continents across the earth's surface through geologic time. In your science spiral: make a table that you can use to record observations about a new rock each day to begin class. Geologic Time- the time of the physical formation and development of the earth (especially prior to human history). How do rocks change form and
how long does it take for rocks to change? Why do rocks affect life on earth? Bonus Material!

http://www.learner.org/interactives/dynamicearth/structure.html An interactive model of the layers of the earth: Science Song of the Day: Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 5 Day 4 Day 6 Day 7 BONUS MATERIALS!!! Continental Drift Song Bonus 3 main types of plate boundaries Divergent Convergent Transform 15 Major Tectonic Plates Plate Boundaries Elevation Map The"Ring of Fire" Four Rules for Questions 1. Ask as many questions as possible. 2. Do not stop to answer, judge,
or evaluate a question. 3. Turn any statement into a question. 4. Write down every question exactly as
it is stated. How long is a long time? Bill Nye the Science Guy: Earth's Crust Eras Periods Ages All Earth Song Bonus !!! It all comes down to scale. Estimate: How long ago did dinosaurs live? How many years ago did flowering plants develop? How long ago did the first single celled organisms appear? Eons Epochs half a billion years or more several hundred million years tens of millions of years millions of years How do scientists know how old a rock is? What is the earth made of? Changing Earth Song Our Geology
Book Curiosity: a strong desire to learn or know something. Midway Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park Travertine: Pumukkale, Turkey Stone Forest: Tsingy de Bemaraha
National Park, Madagascar The Eye of the Sahara S Step 1: Divide your paper into 4 sections The Geologic Wonder: Earth's Interior: Plate tectonics/ Continental Drift: Geologic Time: Decide as a table group who will complete each section. An overview of the
landform (composition, location,
etc...)and it's importance
or mystery. How does the composition of the earth's interior effect the formation of the landform? Does the movement of the
lithosphere effect your
landform? If so how?
If not, why? How long is a long time? How long did it take for your landform to look the way it does today? In what period of time is your landform from? Remember, all the rocks can be any at first... Rock Cycle Song Plate Tectonics Song a rock formed by lava or magma. a rock formed by sediments left by water or air a rock transformed by heat
and pressure Rocks: composed of minerals firmly locked together to form a hard solid. Minerals: a naturally occurring, inorganic solid, with a crystal structure, a specific color and hardness. Quartz Biotite Feldspar Hornblende Rock Cycle Graphic Organizer Will include:
* the 3 types of rock
* constructive forces
* destructive foces
* magma
* sediments
* connections between
different rocks Granite Schist Sandstone Gabbro Pyrite Rocks of the Day A________ is not a _______because _______________________________. And, a key feature of a ______
is ____________. Exit Ticket! Reviewing Rocks and Minerals Bill Nye the Science Guy: Volcanoes! "I feel the earth move under my feet..." Some subduct, others dive, boundaries push and pull aside, VOLCANOES! Pumice Types of seismic waves:
p- waves (primary)
s-waves (secondary)
L-waves (surface) Wave Race Building for Earthquakes Discover Volcanoes Gelatin Volcanoes Types of Volcanoes Day 8 Volcanic Rocks!
