Today, we reviewed plate movements. We started class by turning in our plate tectonics flip book. We then passed out the study guide for our test over Earth’s interior and plate tectonics. I have attached a copy of the study guide at the bottom of the page if you lost yours. The test will be [...]

We started off with our quiz over cotinental drift and sea floor spreading. Once again, I am pleased with our quiz scores. Most students did an excellent job. I can tell you are taking time to study at home. We then continued talking about the different types of plate boundaries. We put together a foldable, [...]

Yesterday, we left off with Alfred Wegener’s theory being rejected by scientists. He later died in Greenland during an expedition. However, today we readily accept the idea that all the continents were all part of a giant landmass called Pangaea. What changed all of that? Well, it was World War II, and the US Navy [...]

Today, we finished up our plate tectonics lab and turned it in. We also discussed about Wegener’s other pieces of evidence for continental drift. Tonight, you should finish your foldable on continental drift. Remember, you have three flaps – flap one is geologic evidence, flap two is fossil evidence, and flap three is climate evidence. [...]

We discussed our quiz results today. If you have not yet taken this quiz, please make arrangements with Mrs. Wilson so that you can make this up. We also continued working on our continental drift fossil evidence lab with creating Pangaea. We should finish this up tomorrow and begin looking at some of the other [...]
