8th Grade Earth Science

November 7, 2018

In 8th grade science we are getting ready to begin the unit on Earth Science.  First, we are going to look into the three different types of rocks found on Earth.  The students will create a Do Ink animation explaining the different types of rocks, and the rock cycle.  Students will also be able to touch and examine real rock samples while exploring this unit.

Following the different rock types, students will explore the many different layers that make up the Earth.  The students will examine how they are related and what each layer does for the Earth.  Students will explore the Theory of Plate tectonics and how they move the continents, and how they have moved over the years.  How far does a continent move in a year?
