February 1-5

NOTE: The monthly optional "replacement assignment" (for period 1, 3, 4) is available here. Your score on this will replace your lowest non-test score so far. Honors students - Your "replacement assignment" is 1-10 on pages 292-293 of your text.

Students will continue taking notes as Benson explains various hazards associated with volcanism. See links below if you were gone.

Benson will explain 3 great eruptions and we will finish the notes on volcanic hazards. Then students will work on their crystal growth lab. See links below if you were gone, and read this. Honors students will be assigned the "Crown Butte Virtual Field Trip" - It is due SOC on Friday. If you miss class, copy the notes from a friend and take a look at the links below.

Students will watch a video called Earth's Deadliest Eruption.

Students will do a lab to called "Magma and Lava". If you were gone, do questions 1-7 page 74 (Honors do 1-7 p. 62). Honors students: The handouts for your projects and papers can be found here. Decide which you want to do, print out the handout and read it. We will have a lottery later this month to determine who gets to do what, and which shifts you will work. The Science Circus will be on Friday and Saturday, March 18-19.

Students will take notes as Benson explains various types of volcanic formations.

Question of the week
How can geologists determine whether an igneous rock formed from lava that cooled above the surface, or from magma that cooled beneath the surface?
