This plate tectonics worksheet has SIMPLIFIED MATH compared to other versions. Learn more about hot spots and island formation, then use data to calculate how fast the Pacific plate moved as the Hawaiian Islands formed. In this activity, students will:READ a brief introduction to hot spots.MEASURE the distance between the Hawaiian Islands in the diagram. CALCULATE the speed of plate movement. The worksheet leads students step-by-step through simple calculations.GRAPH the age of the islands (
Learn about Hawaii’s volcanic origins and the Hot Spot theory. Fill-in timeline of the ages of the Hawaiian islands (SS.4.3.9)The informational text comes in two reading levels. One for regular learners and another for lower-level readers or ELL. The lower-level text is indicated by a green circle in the lower, right-hand corner. WHAT’S INCLUDED:Informational Text (3 pages)Lower-Level Informational Text (3 pages)Fill-in Timeline & Answer Key (2 pages)Multiple Choice Quiz & Answer Key (2
Students study hot-spot volcanoes by reading a nonfiction article about the Hawaiian Islands. They then complete comprehension questions, create instructions for building three volcanoes, and write a short synoposis. The science reading passage can be used to increase reading comprehension and science literacy. The leveled science reading passage is designed to engage your middle school science students with an interesting article, questions, and a mini-project.What's Included?The science pass
This is a close read assignment that students set up in their notebook about Loihi, a seamount near Hawaii that will someday be the newest Hawaiian Island. They start by cutting and gluing the reading material into their notebook and then following the instructions provided on the second page. Students end the activity by using Google Maps online to view the island of Hawaii in satellite view and finding all 5 of the volcanos. They will also be able to see the seamount of Loihi in the ocean near
PROCEEDS BENEFIT "REACH INC."-EMPOWERING ADULTS WITH DISABILITIES http://www.reachinc.org -Southern Science Specialists - Chapel Hill, North Carolina- Using the Hawaiian Islands, students use maps and diagrams to determine the islands ages and characteristics. Questions, pictures, and graphs. Cut and paste or Velcro. This works well for any level but is GREAT for special education students or college prep learners that need an alternative assessment and may not be great at traditional lab
This is an interactive simulation of a paper lab which uses the concept of Hot Spots to deduce tectonic plate movements (citation within the file as a weblink). The activities are engaging. The science is sound. Students cover data acquisition, measurement, graphing, and draw conclusions on how fast the tectonic plate that Hawaiian Islands sit on it is traveling. Students run through the lab in its entirety. The file can be projected as a class activity but if you have access to a computer l
Plate Tectonics - Plate Motion - Hot SpotsStudents use Google Earth to measure the distance from the big island of Hawaii to other Hawaiian islands and atolls.  The highest elevation of the islands is researched and two graphs are made using Google Sheets. The age of island rocks is given.  Students make two graphs showing the increasing age and decreasing elevation of more distant Hawaiian islands.Google EarthGoogle DocsGoogle Sheets

Yet another really cool PowerPoint from Laura Branch! This one covers what hotspots are, especially the Hawaiian Islands. This PowerPoint is based on the California State Science Standards in Earth Science. My students enjoy this one, especially the state fish of Hawaii. I use this as a springboard into the concept of viscosity and non-explosive volcanoes. I hope your students like this PowerPoint as much as mine do! Happy presenting! Let me know how it goes!

From Lava to Sand is a digital spin on traditional escape rooms. Whether you are looking for an activity that introduces Hawaiian sand origins and formation or you wish to use this activity as an enhancement after a volcano unit, this is a fun activity that students can do independently or in groups, in a distance learning setting or in the classroom. No prep required! Just give your students the URL and they will learn through videos, readings, various puzzles, etc. After working through th

A small amount of geologic activity, known as intra-plate activity, does not take place at plate boundaries but within a plate instead. Mantle plumes are pipes of hot rock that rise through the mantle. The release of pressure causes melting near the surface to form a hotspot. A frequently-used hypothesis suggests that hotspots form over exceptionally hot regions in the mantle, which is the hot, flowing layer of the Earth beneath the crust. Mantle rock in those extra-hot regions is more buoyant t
