Sea floor spreading is the explanation behind the movements of the continents across the surface of the Earth. Harry Hammond Hess, a Naval Officer during World War II, first had the idea of sea floor spreading while using sonar to map the North Pacific Ocean floor. He discovered the ocean was more shallow towards the...
This class meets the following standards: NGSS - Earth's Systems NCTM - Problem Solving, Communication, Connections, Representation ITEA - Nature of Technology, Technology and Society, Technological World CCSS - English Language Arts Standard: Science and Technical Subjects
Week 1: Write an essay. The group should write a two-page paper summarizing their collective research on sea floor spreading and continental drift. Sources should be cited properly. The paper can include up to two images. DUE: Wednesday of Week #2. Week 2: Construct a model of the ocean floor. Learners will make a diagram and explain their strategy, then create the system individually. Week 3: Once learners have determined their model depicts the ocean floor as accurately as possible, they will collaborate to create a short video presentation, evaluating their model's ability to show the process of seafloor spreading and subduction, and discussing the process, to submit to the teacher. DUE: Wednesday of Week #4. Week 4: Reflect and Evaluate. Learners will complete the "Reflection" handout and evaluate their performance as a team member by completing the "Self-Evaluation Rubric." DUE: by close of class.
