This resource was created for use in a plate tectonics unit. Stop and take a look at the three methods of heat transfer before introducing the layers of the Earth. Students will better understand the movement that takes place in the mantle and is the driving force of plate tectonics. A two page close reading explains the differences between convection, conduction, and radiation. Numerous examples are given. Read as a class, then have students go back and dissect the types of heat transfer while filling in frayer model cards. Full sheet and quarter sheet are provided. They can be used in an INB or a traditional notebook. A color 'Earth' and black and white 'Earth' are provided to draw in the convection currents within the mantle. This will provide your students an introduction to just the mantle, and what occurs there, before introducing all of the layers.

This resource is NOW included in my ****Plate Tectonics BUNDLE****, which also includes all of the following...

Continental Drift and Seafloor Spreading

Pangea Puzzle: Continental Drift

Layers of the Earth

Plate Tectonics: Plate Boundaries

Plate Tectonics: Reading Tectonic Maps

Plate Tectonics: Task Cards





I offer the following Geology Bundles with Student Workbooks:

If you REALLY want to save: You can purchase ALL of the mentioned geology bundles with student workbooks in my GEOLOGY UNIT MEGA BUNDLE. The mega bundle saves you 25% and will take over half a school year (assuming 45 minute class periods) to complete.

I also offer the following Astronomy Bundles with Student Workbooks:

If you REALLY want to save: You can purchase BOTH of the Astronomy bundles with student workbooks in my ASTRONOMY UNIT MEGA BUNDLE.
