Wednesday: Model lava activity.
Thursday: Check homework. Quiz on Lesson 4. Modeling an explosive eruption activity. Link to activity.  http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/experiments/exp/flour-volcano/ 
                Students may complete this activity for extra credit.  They need to make a video and send it to me.
Friday: Earthquake vibrations activity.  Students will receive instructions on the project they will complete instead of a test.  It will revolve around a restless earth party and is due Thursday, December 17. Please see the attached file below.

All missing assignments pertaining to The Dynamic Earth Units 4 are due Thursday, December 17. This is the end of the semester.
I will put all homework assignments on my calendar at the bottom of the page. Please check it daily.
