Evidence Supporting Plate Tectonics:

Timeline of Evidence Powerpoint:
Use the powerpoint or the PDF; they contain the same information.

Volcano Research: Select a volcanic eruption (or a few) to learn more about. Be ready to share what you've learned in class on Tuesday, 2/3. Here are some places to begin, if you'd like some suggested sites, or find one of your own. Use the internet to find out what you can about the eruption -- things like how it erupted, how it impacted the environment around it, the kind(s) of lava or other stuff emitted from the eruption, etc.
