Weathering, erosion, deposition Earth Science - Break, Move, Drop - TPR Rock Cycle Chant!

Wren this made me think of you. Might be something to included for your geology unit :) Weathering, erosion, deposition Earth Science - Break, Move, Drop - TPR Rock Cycle Chant!

Plate Tectonic Forces. Dance! - What a better way to learn than to get your students up and moving! This song teaches the different movements. This would be a great reinforcement activity and a wonderful way to remember the movements.

I can use this in my classroom as an introduction to plate tectonics and the boundary movements to get the students motivated and engaged. This would be a great tool to get my students to remember the movements of the boundaries.

The science of earthquakes is both fascinating and complicated, even in this over-simplified version.

What Is a Subduction Zone?

A team of international researchers, led by Monash University’s Associate Professor Wouter Schellart, have developed a new global map of subduction zones, illustrating which ones are predicted to be capable of generating giant earthquakes and which.

Identifying Rocks

Identifying Rocks

science Rock Cycle - When picking rocks for hardscapes use Metamorphic rock, especially with water (so it doesn't leach anything into water) also important to know what type of rockscape animals may have evolved in.

Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills help people in homes, schools, and organizations worldwide improve preparedness and practice how to be safe during earthquakes. Register to participate in your state or country's drill at www.ShakeOut.org.

Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at a. on October during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills! Oregonians can join them today by registering for the 2015 Great Oregon ShakeOut.

plate tectonics

This illustration is the best visual depiction of my tectonic plate puzzle piece idea. I would make the orange brighter, perhaps with a slight glow so that the edges and shapes of the tectonic plates are really amplified.
