On Friday I will be attending the “21st Century Learners in Rural Communities” seminar in Melbourne, so you will have some work to go on with. Go to the Interactives Rock Cycle site and work through the activities:

  1. Types of Rocks
  2. How Rocks Change and
  3. Rock Cycle Diagram
  4. Test Your Skills (15 Questions)

When you have completed the test, take a screen shot of your results or save the assessment result page that comes up at the end and send it to me at my gmail address. I am still waiting for the Google doc worksheet  (“Plates of the Earth”) from all except four students. This needs to be sent to my email too.

If you finish the test questions, go to FUSE and copy the Learning Resource Package ID number into the Search box: WMCL9X

These are the Kanawinka Global Geopark resources for you to explore. Try “Rock Back in Time“; “Down to Earth – Paleotraveller” and “Shaping the Land“. If computers and/or the internet is unavailable you will complete work from the textbook – read “Weathering and Erosion” and answer the review questions.

 You could also go to the Volcano Web Cam site and check out some volcanoes in real time. Choose ten different volcano cams and find their location on a map of the world. Create your own Volcano Google map, showing the longitude and latitude of each site. Which of these are in the “Pacific Ring of Fire“?

The Tramline Virtual Volcano Field Trip helps you to answer the following questions:

  1. How are volcanoes formed?
  2. How can they create islands?
  3. What kind of destruction can they cause?
  4. How do volcanoes affect our environment?
  5. Where in the earth can you find active volcanoes?
  6. Are there volcanoes on other planets?
  7. What are the different types of volcanoes?
