Plate Tectonics: Continental Drift

Plate Tectonics: Continental Drift

SCIENTIFIC CONCEPTS/PROCESSES

  • Creating models is one way to understand and communicate scientific information
  • The earth is over four billion years old and different events have occurred on earth during different periods of time
  • Fossils provide important evidence about how life and environmental conditions on the earth have changed over geological time
  • The continents are part of large lithospheric plates that have moved over geological time and continue to move at a rate of centimeters per year
  • Tracing the history of science demonstrates how individuals contributed to the development of modern scientific ideas, and reveals important interactions between science and society
Student groups use SEPUP/LAB-AIDS specially designed and annotated puzzle pieces representing the earth’s continents to investigate the idea of continental drift. In Part I, an exploratory activity, students attempt to put the puzzle pieces into one large continent using clues provided by the shape and the geologic evidence contained on each piece. In Part II students read a selection of statements about continental drift and determining whether those statements are evidence or opinion and whether or not the evidence presented provides support for continental drift.

This is a two-part investigation into the chemical concepts that underlie corrosion and our attempts to inhibit it. In the laboratory portion of this activity, students investigate the corrosion of iron, steel, aluminum, and zinc metal. They investigate the impact of factors such as salinity, coatings, and contact with other metals on rust and corrosion. Students also complete a reading that describes some conditions that affect the rate of corrosion of iron and steel and several chemical principles associated with these conditions. The activity concludes with a discussion of the impact of corrosion on materials and the environment.
