  4. How Plates Move (Slides)
  5. Describing and Measuring Earthquakes (Slides)

Learning Outcomes / Ngā Whāinga Ako

  1. Earth Structure and Plate Tectonics
    1. Explain how the earth has changed over 4.6 billion years and account for its current structure
    2. Explain the theory of plate tectonics using many sources of evidence
    3. Use scientific language: crust, mantle, outer core, inner core, subduction zone, constructive, destructive and conservative plate boundaries
  2. Earthquakes and Volcanoes
    1. Use plate tectonics to explain why and where earthquakes and volcanic eruptions happen
    2. Recall major seismic events from NZ and earth history and relate them to their impact on people
    3. Use scientific language: Richter and Mercalli scale, epicenter, focus, p and s waves, viscosity of larva, shield, dome, caldera
  3. The Rock Cycle
    1. Describe how sedimentary (including fossils), metamorphic and igneous rocks are created and destroyed
    2. Explain how land features (mountains, rivers, plains) are linked to tectonic plate movement and erosion and weathering
