This review of last week (10/31-11/4) was put together by first period students Kim Tran Le and Shakera Williams.

 

Kim Writes:

On the day of Monday, October 31, 2011, in Mr. Kite'a class we had taken notes about the process of convection, how convection in the mantle is related to the movement of tectonic plates and comparing and contrasting the process of ridge push and slab pull. Afterwards we were given time to work on our Earthquake and Volcano project.

On the day of Tuesday, November 01, 2011, in Mr. Kite'a class we had taken notes about how silica affects the viscosity of lava and how to compare and contrast the different types of magma. Afterwards we were given time to work on our Earthquake and Volcano project.

On the day of Wednesday, November 02, 2011, in Mr. Kite'a class we had taken notes about the major parts of the volcano and comparing and contrasting shield, cinder-cone and composite volcanoes. Afterwards we were given time to work on our Earthquake and Volcano project.

On the day of Thursday, November 03, 2011, in Mr. Kite'a class we had taken notes about the contrast of the volcanism that occurs at plate boundaries, explaining the relationships between volcanisms and hotspots, and recognizing the link between volcanoes and earthquakes. Afterwards we were given time to work on our Earthquake and Volcano project.

On the day of Friday, November 04, 2011, in Mr. Kite'a class we had taken notes comparing and contrasting the three types of faults, explaining the cause of earthquakes and discussing about the earthquake that occurred in Japan on 03.11.11. Afterwards we were given time to work on our Earthquake and Volcano project.

Shakera Adds: 

This week in Mr. Kites class we took notes on how earthquakes formed and learned how to classify and label the three different types of volcanoes. As we progressed throughout the week, we were taught about tectonic plate boundaries and how they affect earth’s surface.
