geology(science) am i right?

posted by on .

Respond to the following scenario:
o Your younger brother is in 5th grade. He comes home and tells you to look at an animation his teacher showed him in geology class.
o Review the Continents of the Past animation on this week¡¦s aXcess page.
o After viewing the animation, your brother has a look of disbelief on his face, ¡§C¡¦mon, really? Our whole continent moves? That¡¦s bogus!¡¨ Instead of blowing him off like you usually do, you decide to sit down and educate him about plate tectonics. First, you give him an overview about two historical figures that contributed to the plate tectonic theory. Then, you decide to show him how the plates move by boiling a pot of water (shown on p. 108) and relating it to mantle convection and plate movement.
„h Write a 200- to 300-word summary about the two historical figures and the process of mantle convection and plate movement.


could yellowstone national park and san andres fault be a histioral figure?if so then i just have to explain them and explain mantle convection and plat emovement?

    Historical figures are people who figured out and/or contributed to plate tectonic theory.

  • geology(science) am i right? - ,

    ok so find the people who figured it out then talk about their life?

  • geology(science) am i right? - ,

    Yep. That's right.

  • geology(science) am i right? - ,

    Historical figure refers to plate tectonic scientists. Yes, then explain mantle convection and plate movement.

    ok thanks wehn i get part of it done can you tell me if I am correct?

  • geology(science) am i right? - ,

    Sure. :-)

    is alfred wegener and harry hess? the 2 figures?

  • geology(science) am i right? - ,

    Yes. Wegener and Hess are two of the prominent scientists who developed this theory.

  • geology(science) am i right? - ,

    yes, those are two.

    what about J. H. Hodgson? so now that i have the stwo i just alk about their lives then?

  • geology(science) am i right? - ,

    Yes. J.H. Hodgson was also a historical figure in plate tectonics. You have two historical figures to write about and the process of mantle conduction and plate movement.

    Let's review your instructions.

    h Write a 200- to 300-word summary

    about the two historical figures

    and the process of mantle convection and plate movement.

    is this ok?

    harru hess studied the arced chains of islands with active volcanoes. in 1953 he discovered the great global rift. he is also know for his theriores on the sea floor spreading.
