-Warm Up: Write a one to three sentence summary of your favorite children story.

-Demonstrate navigation of the class website; Assign due dates

-Model expectations of assignment while we read through the rubric that will be used for grading. Discuss the importance and relevance of science to everyday life.

*Warm Up: Process: a series of actions, changes, or functions bringing about a result

Feature: A prominent or distinctive aspect, quality, or characteristic

What are the processes that result from tectonic plate motion? As a result of those processes, what are the features that are observed?

Whole Group: Create a graphic organizer that answers discussion questions 1 & 2 from yesterday.

Competition: Identify as many key learning and concepts from video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLC-cN2XEOU *winner receives extra credit coupon

Collaborative Groups: Create a graphic organizer, illustration, or visual aid that answers- 1-Identify the major processes and features as a result of moving plates, including the physical features associated with different plate boundaries.

2-What type of fault (normal, thrust, & strike-slip) is typically associated with each boundary (convergent, divergent, transform)? Explain your answer.
