  • Product Description
  • Standards

This activity is part of a unit to address the Next Generation Science Standard HS-ESS2-3: Develop a model based on evidence of Earth’s interior to describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection.

This activity was designed as part of the EXPLORE stage in the 5E model. To get the best use of it, students may need to engage in EXPLAIN activities to solidify their understanding of content and concepts. Flowing from EXPLORE activities to various EXPLAIN activities will better assist students in building their own understanding.

What’s Included?

In this activity, students will graph data on seismic waves to draw conclusions about Earth’s interior. After graphing, students will complete a worksheet to guide their interpretation of the graph they completed using the “What I See - What It Means” data analysis method. They will answer additional questions to complete their interpretation of their graphs.

NGSSHS-ESS2-3
Develop a model based on evidence of Earth’s interior to describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection. Emphasis is on both a one-dimensional model of Earth, with radial layers determined by density, and a three-dimensional model, which is controlled by mantle convection and the resulting plate tectonics. Examples of evidence include maps of Earth’s three-dimensional structure obtained from seismic waves, records of the rate of change of Earth’s magnetic field (as constraints on convection in the outer core), and identification of the composition of Earth’s layers from high-pressure laboratory experiments.
