3 Main Objectives: 1. To know that the Earth is made up of several layers: core, mantel and crust. 2. To know that the crust is also made up of several layers: lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere. 3. To know that the crust of the Earth is constructed of many different sections called tectonic plates. 4. To know that the continents and oceans sit on these plates and that the movement of the plates is the cause of volcanoes and earthquakes.

Mt.Vesuvius is a dormant volcano. Earthquake n. a series of vibrations induced in the Earth's crust by the abrupt rupture and rebound of rocks in which energy has been slowly accumulating. Japan frequently suffers Earthquakes.
9 tectonic plate n. the two sub-layers of the Earth's crust (lithosphere) that move, float, and sometimes fracture and whose interaction causes continental drift, Earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and oceanic trenches. n. the lateral movement of continents resulting from the motion of crustal plates. continental drift Continental drift has caused the surface of the Earth to change over long periods of time. geology n. the science that deals with the dynamics and physical history of the Earth, the rocks of which it is composed, and the changes that the Earth has undergone or is undergoing.

32 Hands-on Activities 1 The Structure of the Earth Main Objectives: 1. To know that the Earth is made up of several layers: core, mantel and crust. 2. To know that the crust is also made up of several layers: lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere. Resources needed: Digital projector and PC Ppt The structure of the Earth Internet connection Pupil worksheet 1.1 Pupil worksheet 1.2 Scissors, glue and coloured pencils or crayons. Intrduction To introduce this unit, show the children the short film using the link below (or click on the hyperlink on the powerpoint presentation).
33 Use the word wall cards to reinforce the vocabulary learnt throughout this lesson. Place them on the board as the narrator introduces them. Development Follow the PowerPoint presentation to the end naming each part of the Earth s structure. After completing this part, distribute the two activity sheets: in activity sheet 1.1 the children will construct a 2d model of the Earth s structure; activity sheet 1.2, is a schematic diagram to aid children in organising their ideas. The children should work independently, following the instructions to complete their model. These could then be displayed around one done by the teacher and enlarged to A3. Plenary Go back the link above, or click on the hyperlink on the ppt. Use the quiz to reinforce today s lesson.
34 Hands-on Activity 2 Plate tectonics, Volcanoes and Earthquakes Main Objectives: 1. To know that the crust of the Earth is constructed of many different sections called tectonic plates. 2. To know that the continents and oceans sit on these plates and that the movement of these plates is the cause of volcanoes and earthquakes. Resources needed: Internet connection Digital projector PowerPoint The Surface of the Earth A2 card, glue, pens etc. Introduction: Use the PowerPoint to introduce the children to ideas taught throughout this activity. It is important that they realise that the surface of the Earth is in constant movement and that this causes volcanoes and Earthquakes to occur. Use slides 1 6.
35 Development: Use slides 7 10 to explain how volcanoes and earthquakes occur. Try to relate the occurrence of these phenomena to the movements of the plates. Emphasise the destructive power of these forces of Nature. Once the children have finished with the PowerPoint, explain the task to them. Task: The children will create a poster project in pairs, either about how volcanoes are formed or about how earthquakes occur. They need to find information about the topic and present it in an informative way in their own words. The second part of the project involves them researching one volcano or earthquake in detail. A prompt sheet is provided to help them structure their report. Plenary: Once the children have finished their poster, display them around the class alongside the word-wall cards and the key questions. Ask each pair to talk about their project to the class.
