This product is a BUNDLE of three WEBQUESTS:

Plate Tectonics – A Webquest

Active Volcanoes! In the Ring of Fire

Volcanoes! Of the United States – A Webquest

Plate Tectonics: This webquest sends your students on an interactive journey through the Plates on the Move website.

Build and reinforce knowledge of plate boundaries and the geological processes that result. The webquest worksheet provides the teacher with evidence that learning is taking place!

Active Volcanoes! in the Ring of Fire: Students learn...

• The relation between tectonic plate boundaries and volcanoes

• Why the area surrounding the Pacific Ocean is called the Ring of Fire

• Map reading and interpretation

• Using interactive websites while conducting research

This webquest takes advantage of the Global Volcanism Program’s interactive, up-to-date map of volcanoes throughout the world.

Volcanoes! of the United States: Use the interactive and up-to-date map of the Volcano Hazards Program to research the location, volcano type and most recent activity of volcanoes within U.S. territories.

Skill-building Activities:

• Map reading and interpretation

• Navigate interactive websites to conduct research

NGSSMS-ESS2-2
Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales. Emphasis is on how processes change Earth’s surface at time and spatial scales that can be large (such as slow plate motions or the uplift of large mountain ranges) or small (such as rapid landslides or microscopic geochemical reactions), and how many geoscience processes (such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteor impacts) usually behave gradually but are punctuated by catastrophic events. Examples of geoscience processes include surface weathering and deposition by the movements of water, ice, and wind. Emphasis is on geoscience processes that shape local geographic features, where appropriate.
NGSSHS-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. Emphasis is on how the appearance of land features (such as mountains, valleys, and plateaus) and sea-floor features (such as trenches, ridges, and seamounts) are a result of both constructive forces (such as volcanism, tectonic uplift, and orogeny) and destructive mechanisms (such as weathering, mass wasting, and coastal erosion). Assessment does not include memorization of the details of the formation of specific geographic features of Earth’s surface.
Integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g., in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph, or table).
Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6–8 texts and topics.
