Lesson Objective

Students will be able to (SWBAT) use latitude and longitude points to map earthquakes and volcanoes. By overlaying this map with a plate boundaries map, SWBAT make inferences about locations of natural disasters with respect to plate boundaries.

Lesson Plan




Students enter, pass in previous night's homework, and begin Do Now activity silently.  Students who finish early read independently (5 min.)
1. Do Now: Review quiz mistakes from "Plate Tectonics" quiz
2. Intro to Mapping Activity (review of map skills): Brief notes on latitude and longitude (this is review from the previous lesson)
3. Partner Work for Mapping Activity (with interludes of check-ins every few minutes)
4. Conclusions about location of most earthquakes and volcanoes
5. Introduction to hot spot(s)
