Day 143: Continental Drift Puzzle April 13, 2007Posted by Admin in Geology, Homework, Test.
After getting the geologic timeline projects submitted for grading at the start of the hour, students then tackled a great continental drift puzzle activity. In this activity, students began by labelling several large land masses with the names of fossils that have been found on the coastlines of each land mass. The land masses were then cut out of the larger sheet of paper and rearranged them into one large land mass. Students used both the physical shapes as well as alignment of the fossil record to bring the shapes together in the large land mass that is known as Gondwana (pictured above).
TEST: Another reminder about the test and next week’s schedule. We will review in class on Tuesday as well as after school (3-4pm) on Tuesday. The test is scheduled for Wednesday, 04/18. If you will be absent for a pre-planned school trip, you need to schedule a time ASAP to take the test prior to your absense – preferably Tuesday before or after school or Wednesday morning. The Geology Test #2 Study Guide has been made available for those who prefer to start preparing this weekend.
