LEARNING TARGETS- Plate Tectonics
E-1
P-3-50?
What are the LAYERS OF THE EARTH? Give
the thickness of each layer and its composition.
Include Asthenosphere and Lithosphere.
THE LAYERS OF THE EARTH. Create a visual
display that shows the layers of the earth, in
proportion to their actual thickness, labeling each
with their correct thickness and composition.
E-7
How do scientists study the interior structure
of the earth?
E-8
Where do most volcanoes and earthquakes
occur?
Use the Seismic Eruptions program on the desktop
computers to analyze where volcanoes and earthquakes
most frequently occur.
E-9
What is the difference between OCEANIC
CRUST and CONTINENTAL CRUST?
E-2
Define EARTHQUAKE
GENERAL ASSIGNMENTS
E-3
What is a SEISMOLOGIST?
E-10
Understand the theory of PLATE
TECTONICS.
Include:
Alfred Wegener
Fossil Evidence
Rock/Mountain Range Evidence
Age of Sea Floor
Puzzle Piece Shape of Plate Boundaries
E-11
How do CONVECTION CURRENTS in the
mantle drive Plate Tectonics?
E-4
Understand the difference between the
following SEISMIC WAVES:
P-WAVES
S-WAVES
SURFACE WAVES
E-5
What is an EPICENTER and FOCUS? How
do seismologists locate EPICENTERS?
E-6
Locate the following:
 THE RING OF FIRE
 THE MID-ATLANTIC RIDGE
 THE 7 PRIMARY PLATES AND 8
SECONDARDY PLATES
 CASCADIA SUBDUCTION ZONE

How do rocks move and change forms? The
rock cycle.
THE ROCK CYCLE. For this project, you
need to demonstrate your knowledge of the
Rock Cycle through any form that you wish. It
can be a diorama, a project display board, a
power point, or anything else that works for
you. The display should be a teaching tool,
easily to understand and a quality piece of work.
How do engineers make a building safe?
Research and build a model of a home/building
that uses earthquake prevention mechanisms.
Include a description of the techniques.
What are the major factors that determine
the intensity of ground shaking from an
earthquake?
Create ground scenarios, have a controlled
structure, and use the WMS shake table to
demonstrate how these factors effect ground
shaking.
What are the 3 types of earthquakes the
Pacific Northwest could experience? How
and where do they occur?
E – 16
What evidence led scientists to believe that
the last MEGATHRUST QUAKE in
Washington occurred in January of 1700?
