Plate Tectonics & Paleontology
Summary Boxes for Learning Targets:
2f Ask questions to compare and contrast the layers of the Earth based on temperature, density, pressure, and composition.
2g Construct an explanation of how the movement of Earth's tectonic plates is due to convection currents in the mantle and can cause major events such as earthquakes and volcanoes
2h Construct an arguement using maps and data to support a claim of how fossils show evidence of the changing surface and climate of the earth
Extension further exploration of how different fossil types form and what information scientists can gather from them
