Unit/Lesson Title/Number: Dynamic Crust Lab 4-1 Patterns of Crustal Activity Lab #2 Context and Class Profile BDF Day: 4 girls, 4 boys, 1 504 Plan

Common Core Standards

Assessed:
2.1l The lithosphere consists of separate plates that ride on the more fluid asthenosphere and move slowly in relationship to one another, creating convergent, divergent, and transform plate boundaries. These motions indicate Earth is a dynamic geologic system. These plate boundaries are the sites of most earthquakes, volcanoes, and young mountain ranges. 2.1o Plate motions have resulted in global changes in geography, climate, and the patterns of organic evolution.

Interdisciplinary Connections

Geography: The geography of the world has changed over millions of years due to plate tectonics.

21st Century Skills Lesson Objectives 1. Students will be able to locate areas of crustal activity when given a map.
Label : (Blooms Taxonomy)

Must be numbered

Acceptable Evidence
*Could be collected for accountability and/or auditing purposes.

1. Lab hand-in

Procedure Teacher input, development, instructional method(s), modeling, guided practice, independent practice, and/or activities

The students will grab their lab books when they walk in. The teacher will ask them to silently read the lab introduction and fill in as many vocabulary words as possible. The students should recognize from the last class that the areas of crustal activity are where the plates meet. The teacher will quickly review the vocabulary and then will begin talking about the procedure of the lab. Neatness will be emphasized.

Label: Bell Ringer Also may be called: set induction,

anticipatory set, introduction/review, Do Now, Write Now, Silent Starter Label: Transitions Label: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic Accommodations for learning modalities Label: Checks for Understanding: directions, procedures/routines, and/or content (formative) Label: Evidence of Cognitive Student Engagement (CSE) Label: Closure

The students will be shown a map that shows the mountain ranges around the world. The students should mark where these mountain ranges occur, including those that exist under the ocean. The students may use a highlighter to mark the ranges, instead of drawing individual triangles for each. The students will turn to a chart in the back of their lab manual that gives active volcanoes. The students will mark 7 different volcanoes in red. The students will use another chart to map 5 different earthquakes in pencil. They should include the date of the earthquake as well. The class will work on the discussion questions with the help of the teacher. The lab will not be collected, but should be placed in the students notes.

Assessment/ Evaluation
Label formative or summative, describe purpose, and provide grading/feedback method.

1. Lab activity (formative)- This lab will not be collected, but verbal feedback will be given while the students are doing the lab.

Technology PowerPoint-notes on the board otherwise


Describe type and purpose. Include a back-up plan.

Academic Language required for the lesson Accommodations, Student Supports, and/or Interactions with Co-Teachers and/or Support

Students will learn about the different crustal activity that occurs where the tectonic plates meet. Any necessary adaptations for students will be made and noted.

Staff Resources/ Materials Lab books, red colored pencils
