Review: What Layer Am I???

Todays Agenda1/11/13 Bellringer: Compare the Earths inner and outer core. Finish Foldable BrainPop on Earths Layers Quiz on Monday Begin Notes on Earths Plates (SP#3)

Review: What Layer Am I??? Is it getting hot in here or is it just me? I am the hottest of all Earths layers. You walk on me all day and you dont even stop to say hi!

Wow! Im really feeling the pressure. Im the layer of Earths crust that experiences the most pressure! Review If Earth were a peach, Id be the part you would like to eat. Im just below the outer covering, the

crust! I share part of my name with another layer. But that guy is always a solid, I just like to go with the flow, Im a liquid. Review Erosion changes the way I look, it

just wears away at me every year. Do you like your refrigerator magnets? Then thank me! Just call me silly, silly putty. Im kind of a solid, but I still flow. Review I dont have to eat my cereal or

take my vitaminsIm made up of iron! I like to spend my days soaking in the sun and floating around on the hot mantle. Earths Moving Plates Study Pack #3

Todays goals I can explain how Earths plates move. I can explain why Earths plates move. Earths Plates Earths lithosphere is the upper

part of the mantle and the crust The lithosphere is broken up into pieces called tectonic plates They float on the mantle Different sizes and shapes Earths Plates

Earths Plates The plates move very slowly About 2cm/year This has caused the position of the continents to change over the years The movement of these plates can also cause changes in Earths surface

Plate Boundaries The places where the edges of plates meet Plates experience stress at boundaries Convergent Divergent

Transform Plate Boundaries Convergent Plates move toward each other Plates experience a type of stress called compression(pushing) The plates crumple up and form

mountains Sometimes one plates goes under the other - subduction Plate Boundaries Divergent Plates move away from each other Plates experience a type of stressed

called tension(pulling) New crust is formed causing a ridge Plate Boundaries Transform Boundary Plate move past each other A type of stress called shearing occurs This causes faults or cracks in the

crust Earthquakes can occur here Why do the plates move? Convection currents in the mantle behave like a conveyor belt to move the plates
