QFD:There is no failure except in no longer trying. Elbert Hubbard
?FD: Why aren’t you prepared for quizzes? Why are most students lazy?
Objective: ESS 3c. Students know how to explain the properties of rocks based on the physical and chemical conditions in which they formed, including plate tectonic processes.
1) Projects
Project – Prove you understand the California Earth Science Standards by writing and building a visual representation: Write 250 words on a standard and build a project. Due after spring break. 300 points You must include the Standard from 3 http://www.mrb.bz/sciencestnd.pdfGo to www. mrborden.info and click the California Earth Science Standards link located at the top middle of the page. Scroll down to Earth Science which is the last subject and look for standard 3 if you did not copy the standards on Thursday or Friday from the board.

QFD: Self-preservation is the first law of nature. Samuel Butler
?FD: Name the 3 major types of volcanoes, their eruption types, the color of their lava and the amount of silica
Objective: ESS 3c. Students know how to explain the properties of rocks based on the physical and chemical conditions in which they formed, including plate tectonic processes.
1) volcano legend papers ( read and correct another persons)
2) Rock cycle notes
Rocks – geologists classify rocks according to their color, texture, and their mineral composition
Texture – the size, shape, and pattern of the rocks grain
Grain – the particles or minerals in a rock which give a rock its texture. coarse grain are large particles that are easy to see while fine grain can only be seen with a microsope. some have patterns (wavy , swirling, multicolored) and some have no grain at all (obsidian)
Mineral composition – geologists use slivers of rocks to determine the minerals that make up rocks
Igneous Rocks – are classified by where the magma cools. Extrusive Igneous rocks aare formed from lava and Basalt (ocean floor) is the most common. Intrusive Igneous rocks form under the surface of earth from magma (Granite) which makes up most mountains
Porphyritic Texture – small crystals in igneous rocks
Igneous rock usage – tools (arrow heads, hammers, building materials, statues, pumice is used for cleaning and polishing.
Sedimentary Rocks – formed from sediment (rock particles) by erosion (water), deposition (under ground), compaction (pressure)and cementation (glue).
Clastic sedimentary rocks – shale , sandtone and conglomerate ( dirt clods) formed when rockes are squeezed together
Organic sedimentary Rocks – coal, limestone, coral, amber – formed from the remains of living things
Chemical Sedimentary rocks – Gypsum and calcite – formed from evaporaite materials that dissolve and crystallize.
Sedimentary rock uses – white house is built of sandstone and limestone is used in smelting iron and ore
Metamorphic rocks – formed from heat and pressure by forces within Earth. (volcanoes and rocks buried deep below the surface.
Foliated and Non foliated metamorphic rocks – “Foliated”parallel layers or bands (shake, mica or hornblende) non foliated metamorphic rocks are gemstones and crystals that do not have layers or bands
Metamorphic rock uses – building materials because they can be cut into slabs(Taj Mahal) roofing, chalkboads

  1. What did i learn in the video “bill nye the science guy, rocks rock harder” ? Well
    Its explaining how many different rocks can be formed , they are formed by pressure, heat, and water. One of the common rocks are igneous, sedimentary, & metamorphic. Igneous is formed under the ground and made up of other rocks. Metamorphic rocks start off as dust and as the water makes them dry up it becomes a rock. & finally igneous is melted lava dried up and formed into a solid.

  2. And reply back soo i know you read this! -julio again

    • ok Julio I have read this lol

      • mr borden im really stuck on a assignment and i need a lot of help! julio
