State Framework(s)/Common Core Objective(s):
ES 5. Describe how the movement of the earth’s crustal plates causes both slow changes in the earth’s surface (e.g., formation of mountains and ocean basins) and rapid ones (e.g., volcanic eruptions and earthquakes).
Content: I can explain seafloor spreading using supporting evidence, such as the age of rocks and magnetic reversal.
Process: I can record notes, analyze diagrams, and physically model the seafloor spreading process.
Behavior: I can work independently by recording significant notes, and I can work with the whole class by participating in the seafloor spreading physical activity.
