Geology Topics Unit

Geology Topics Unit in Spanish

This review contains 20 questions associated with plate tectonics, continental drift, Pangea, Earth's Interior, Heat Transfer (Basic), and Plate Boundary topics as well as a final question. The last five questions are for fun bonus questions that have the students name the continent based on a landform in that continent. This game looks a lot like Jeop_ _ _ _ but I do not play it this way. I break the class into six groups and let the students use their notebook and work together in small groups answering the questions one at time through the slideshow. After all the questions have been covered, the answer version is then provided so students can self assess. Each question is previewed before the answer is revealed so the teacher can call upon students or table groups. Most every question has a visual component. Please see all of the Q+A below, as well as my entire Geology Topics Unit that I offer on TpT.

Questions 1-20 = 5pts each,

Questions 21-25 (Bonus +1pt)

Final Question - Name Parts of the Volcano 1 Point Each.

Find the Hidden Owl hiding in the PowerPoint (+1pt)
