January 11-15

IMPORTANT: The study guide for the semester test is posted on this page in case you want to start studying. Benson will give you a copy on Friday.

Students will take notes (on handout) as Benson continues to explain Plate Tectonics. Attention honors students: No MESPOWs this week. If you were gone (or simply want to review), take a look at the links provided below AND read text pages 248-260 (honors 194-203).

We will watch a video about the Mariana Trench. If you miss this class, be sure to watch it online: Video: Deepest Place on Earth (43 minutes). As you watch answer questions on the WS, which can be found on this page.

Students will do a group problem-solving activity related to the movement of tectonic plates. If you were gone, read text page 285 (honors 212).

We will review several concepts related to plate tectonics, and then Benson will explain the different types of geology that take place at various plate boundaries.

Benson will tell students about the test, provide a review sheet, and then give students time to study for the test.

Question(s) of the week: What is a zone of subduction, and what are the various features and activity that take place there?
