Start at chapter five during passing time.
Super volcano today, it starts to get depressing. Pick up the study guide from lab desk one.
Certain geological events are not an if,...but rather a when)
Worried about short week, icy roads later this week.

Jan 8 MS-LS-1
Modeling Plate tectonics with paper
You need your journal. Log on to your computer, your slides are due next week. Watch"Modeling Continental Drift". When done,.... see me for the tests.

Finish your EOY slides by clicking here! When done show me and I will grant access the sample test to see how well you prepared for the test. Warning, in the future, you earn grades, they are not given! Application and synthesis of new information into new situations is the rest of your life!

Phet Plate Tectonics
In the first 20 minutes, log into your computer and go to this site- Plate tectonics. Hit the "Play" button, it should run, I hope. If not, go to your desktop, select green box with white arrow icon. Select Plate tectonics and run.


Complete terms, and drawings.
Science test 30 questions


1- You need your notebook to study between attempts.


2- Log into-Mr. Engel's M-Step High School Earth Science Take the test.


Moodle log in example- GreEng20 or GreEng20@almapanthers.net

and then the normal password to get on your computer.


3- Then read "Work on your EOY PPT"

Due the second week in January for test grade click here for the skeleton
Jan 10
Create your test in your notebook on "Modeling convective behavior in an analogous liquid simulating plate tectonics and rock cycle" The TEST is due Friday at the very start of class. If done, you will follow your directions and make your model Thursday,.... if not you will not do the lab and
will work on your Moodle review test instead.

a·nal·o·gyəˈnaləjē/

A comparison between two things, typically on the basis of their structure and for the purpose of explanation or clarification. i.e.-

Jolly Ranchers are like tectonic Plates because both are the solid version of a more dense liquid. Both Tectonic Plates and Jolly ranchers fracture under pressure in fault zones, releasing energy that travels in waves( earthquakes)

Jolly Ranchers are made out of Cornstarch and Water, the mantle and outer core in our model is made from Cornstarch and Water.


The athenosphere in our model, which is made from sugar, has some plasticity to it when heated like the real magma of the earth.

or

The hot plate is like the earth's radioactive inner core, as long as it produces heat, the layers of our model will move and drive the plates in a miniature version of Plate tectonics.

or

The carbon found in the sugar of the Jolly Ranchers is an analogy to the limestone on the basalt ocean bottom, as it is returned to the mantle convection by subduction in the "Ring of Fire" (Edge of the beaker) or

The steam bubbles given off int he experiments are like the off gassing of volcanoes creating the earth's atmosphere.

or

The size of the bubble increase as they move up by convection inside the beaker like a mantle plume burning through the crust to form
Jan 11
You need your journal/headphones.
Read-"A History of You" . In your journal, read/watch the bold dates and all hyperlinked clips, generate a summery statement, for each bold dates. Take notes on all the videos clips as well. two weeks, two days left to prepare for the exam.

If time, color your pictures in your notebook. Due at end of class today.

The more notes you have, the more answers you will have for the test.

Multiple choice test Friday
In your journal write this down-
Oil is non-renewable fossilized sunlight. (Nuclear fusion [H->He] in the sun is stored by photosynthesis in plants in the bonds of sugar. Dead plants in water are deposited in sedimentary rocks. Overlaying sedimentary layers generate heat and pressure to "cook" remains into oil.) (On land, same process makes plants/ferns->coal)
Jan 23
Today we will then wrap up some notes on post crude notes on Plate tectonics, Oil and coal formation, superposition and iron banding formation.
