Modeling Earth Processes: Constructive Forces
Use models to explore constructive Earth processes, such as convergent plate boundaries, volcanoes, and river deposition in the classroom. In this series of 3 investigations, students discover mechanisms that cause changes in Earth's features. They observe different landscapes and think about the forces that may have caused them, model the formation of mountains at convergent plate boundaries, explore how volcanos affect the surface of Earth, and collect data on the formation of river deltas._x000D__x000D_
_x000D_While designed as a stand-alone earth science course, this series of activities could be incorporated into a high school physics or biology course.
_x000D_Teacher prep, 60 minutes. Completing the activities, approximately 1 week (180 minutes).
_x000D_Includes 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction for NGSS. Digital resources may include digital teacher manual and student guide, pre-lab activities and setup videos, simulations, and post-lab analysis and assessments.
_x000D_HS-ESS2-1. Develop a model to illustrate how Earth's internal and surface processes operate at different spatial and temporal scales to form continental and ocean-floor features.
